WINTERGREEN RESORT NAMED AMONG TOP 10 TENNIS RESORTS
WINTERGREEN, Va. (May 3, 2012) – Wintergreen Resort, located high atop Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, has again been named one of the Tennis Resorts Online “Top 100 Tennis Resorts and Camps for 2011,” earning a place among the top 10 Gold Medal Resorts. Wintergreen Tennis Academy was also listed among top five in the “Top 25 Tennis Camps.”
Each year, Tennis Resorts Online solicits the opinions of thousands of racquet-wielding vacationers worldwide and compiles their collective experience into an annual ranking of the “Top 100 Tennis Resorts and Camps.” The results are broken down into two major categories: the “Top 75 Tennis Resorts” and the “Top 25 Tennis Camps.” In order to fully assess the tennis resort or camp experience, vacationers assess each property in more than 20 categories. All aspects of the tennis experience are included, as are such diverse off-court characteristics as the quality of the lodging, restaurants, children's programs, and value for dollar. Those reviews are tabulated to determine a numerical ranking using a formula that gives added weight to the tennis elements. Only resorts having a minimum of six tennis courts are eligible to be ranked.
Wintergreen has 22 courts, including three indoor Deco-Turf courts and 19 outdoor clay courts. Moreover, Wintergreen’s award-winning Tennis Academy offers an array of adult tennis programs, junior camps and clinics. Jonathan Sarosiek is the director of tennis for Wintergreen Resort.
