Sundial Beach Resort & Spa Takes Top for Tennis

DATE: October 8, 2015

This fast-action, keen-eyed, calculating and highly engaging sport used to be called “the game of the palm” hundreds of years ago; and for more than 100 years the dynamics and rules of the game have undergone very few changes (one in 1908 involved the server’s foot placement).

More than 11 million Americans play tennis, finding the game challenging, invigorating and a very worthy pastime. We at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa heartily embrace the game and offer the finest and most sophisticated facilities for tennis lovers.

Our efforts have been duly noted – and applauded. In fact, a recent newspaper poll put the facilities at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa at the top. For tennis enthusiasts, that means the courts here are Grand Slam.

Results from the recent Best of the Islands contest sponsored by Sanibel-Captiva Islander, a popular island newspaper focusing on local arts and entertainment, showed that residents and visitors found the  tennis amenities here unbeatable, voting Sundial Beach Resort & Spa as having the Best Tennis on the Islands.
