Tennis Club Overview
Framed by the inland foothills of Northern California’s famed Santa Cruz Mountain, the CordeValle Tennis Club offers a relaxed, tranquil setting uncommon among traditional destination resort courts.
Opened in 2010, the Tennis Club defines the solitude of the resort’s environment. Designed with only four Plexicushion tournament-quality courts to ensure an intimate atmosphere, the full-service, staffed facility is subtly positioned among the natural countryside and manicured vineyards of the winery on property. The courts were built with ample room around them, presenting a relaxed atmosphere where guests can play the game at their own pace.
Under the guidance of Tennis Director Benjy Robins, CordeValle's Tennis Club offers all the amenities expected from an elite tennis club: personal and group instruction, hitting partners upon request, ball machines, hitting backboard and close to 100 rackets available for use by all levels of players, from beginners to professionals.
The court surface plays at a medium speed, allowing for a wide variety of game styles. These light green-on-dark green courts are ready for play at any skill level, from competitive singles to a friendly game of mixed doubles, and are available one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset. A separate oasis within the resort’s 1,700 acres, the dedicated tennis pavilion features a lounge area, multiple HD televisions, dining tables and a bar. Opening out to a shaded veranda, the pavilion is an extension of the comfort and elegance of CordeValle, ideal for a variety of entertainment and social options.
“CordeValle is an escape from the crowded clubs and tennis courts,” Robins says. “Our tennis weekends are planned to bring together groups of people to enjoy playing in a setting where you can take that deep breath again and appreciate tennis for the amazing sport it is, and what it does for the mind, body and spirit.”
In a short time, the Tennis Club at CordeValle has received numerous positive reviews and has been discovered by a variety of ATP tour professionals, who have enjoyed getaways to the resort during their visits to annual Northern California championship events.
CordeValle also offers private individual and corporate Tennis Club memberships, with a variety of options that include access to the restaurants, Sense® spa, pool and fitness area, as well as the award-winning Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course.
