I was hesitant to book this place based on some of the reviews on TripAdvisor but boy am I glad we took the chance! My wife and I just went for a one night Sunday-Monday session - there were nine guests and everything was wonderful: - The rooms are older (no TV) but fine for what you are there for...

I just got back from Total Tennis and I am beat (in a good way). I was a little fearful of the reviews since it was my first time, but I'm going to give you the skinny about the place: FOOD: Simply amazing! They have a chef who makes wonderful creations. If only I could take him home with me....

Back at tennis after being away from it for some 28 years....started back last year at our lovely little tennis club in Bancroft Ontario. Found that love of tennis rekindled and started looking for more adventures on the court. Such experiences are limited in my area of Canada and decided to look on the internet for travel and play combinations....

I went once before and it was wonderful. The owner doesn't care about us, paying customers. They moved me out of the blue from 4.0 drills to 3.0 because another person needed to be moved up and they are too lazy to do the math. I am a 3.5 usta player I am udefeated at usta 3.0 in the season...

Total Tennis is a retreat in the Catskills for tennis enthusiasts and those that just want to try out the sport. Most people go up for 2 or 3 day weekends beginning Friday and ending Sunday. When you first arrive, it looks like a lodge/commune with the main building in the center housing the reception, bar, lounge, dining area and...

As has been said here many times, Ed the owner is unpleasant and has an attitude. As a paying customer, I don't expect to be yelled at when I ask a question. The tennis is hit or miss depending on the instructor. I was told that only 3 of the pros were certified tennis instructors. You play with the same...

Signed up for 3 days of Tennis. Had an excellent instructor for the first two days and learned a lot. Physical demanding. 3rd day, two different instructors. I have never seen lazier tennis instructors than those two! No tips to improve my skills, just standing around, hugging their racket and running drills. The Tennis Director never showed up during any...

We have been to TT several times over the last couple of years and every time we love it. Firstly, it is a tennis camp, so don't expect luxury. Having said that, the rooms are adequate and clean. There are several buildings to stay in, we stayed in Chura Rose and the main Lodge. It was fine -- you are...

Good things: food, cleanliness of the rooms, overall casualness of the place, hours on the court Not so good: pros can be lazy, private lesson arrangements and times, variability of pro competence So, would I return? Answer is that it depends on my husband who absolutely loves the place. I have a regular weekly lesson plus a tennis drill class...

Had a wonderful weekend. It's all about tennis and fun. Lovely setting, looking at the mountains when forgetting to look at the ball. Ed's instructions/demonstrations each day were brilliant in their simplicity. The food was surprisingly good - was kinda worried when it was listed as 'buffet style' but each meal was really great. Fantastic atmosphere, lovely staff and an...

“Main Lodge Lounge is only place with wifi. We stayed in the newest building which was comfortable in a simple, woodsy way.”
