Naples Grande Beach Resort // Paradise Awaits After Your Completely Customizable Court Time
Naples Grande Beach Resort shines above the competition in all aspects, but the tennis, especially, surpasses all expectations
You’ll experience the quality of tennis you’ve been seeking when you make the visit to Naples Grande Beach Resort. This AAA Four Diamond resort incorporates 15 Har-Tru courts, five of which are lighted, on their grounds which is simply unheard of, until now. You’ll be amazed with the management from the Peter Burwash International staffing and their keen desire to meet and truly exceed all of your tennis desires.
Naples Grande Beach Resort incorporates all of your unique and upscale amenities onto its property that’s situated on over 23 acres, with private access to an exquisite beach and associated recreational activities. Your morning may begin with a spa package, sifting towards a late brunch in the Aura Restaurant before heading through the pristine, Floridian 200-acre Mangrove Estuary towards the white, sandy beach set along three miles of the clearest, blue water. Perhaps your afternoon calls for a light snack at Rhode’s End before shifting into your late afternoon semi-private lesson just in time for a refreshing cocktail overlooking the Mangrove Pool. Sound appealing yet? Not to fret – if you’re still not completely sold, have a look at the impeccable tennis programming, membership options, resort amenities and so much more that’s in-store should you allow Naples to become your next getaway destination.
All are welcome on-site at Naples Grande, and the choices remain endless once setting foot on property, beginning with their various room accommodations. From coastal views to a garden sanctuary suite just a short walk from the tennis courts, you have the option to pin-point exactly where your itinerary shall lead you. Should you insist on incorporating tennis into your stay in Naples (we recommend this choice!), there are various membership options completely ideal for your year-round, seasonal, or one-time trip. With over 50 active tennis members, you’ll note that your next mixed doubles partner could be a long-time member or a first-time resort guest. Resort guests and other guests in the area are able to utilize the courts for $20/hour/court with reservations encouraged to ensure amble space and times. Local guests are welcome on-site for a maximum of five times per year before a membership should be introduced. A premier membership is available for those who enjoy both tennis and golf.

Tennis Socials and Mixers can be enjoyed on the grounds two- three times per month; yet another feature that’s oftentimes impossible to offer with lack of court space. Notable events include the PBI Cup, held in February, that attracts well over 75 guests. This weekend classic (Feb. 3-5 2017) offers an included hour and a half doubles clinic, three hours of guaranteed doubles/ mixed play per day, a player gift, lunch, an enjoyable kick-off cocktail party and a pro exhibition. Information and booking can be found HERE. Another unique aspect of Naples Grande allows for two to three annual pro exhibitions featuring both resort and local staff members battling on- property during a well-attended social outing.
PBI hosts adult World Camps throughout the year at their impeccable locations, and Naples Grande earns the honor of hosting these one-of-a-kind events as well. For further information in regards to timing and booking, please click HERE.
For adults seeking tennis throughout their stay or as a part of their membership packages, a daily clinic from 9-10am offers an engaging and upbeat beginning to your day.
Through my experience partaking in a daily clinic, both members and guests enjoyed learning new aspects of the game from the knowledgable PBI staff. The unique 4:1 ratio ensures you’ll receive the attention to detail you’re looking for. Live ball drills mixed with fundamental play and capped off with an exciting and competitive doubles game truly amounts to a worthwhile and notable 60 minutes of tennis that will leave you yearning for the next available court time.
Ladies enjoy Thursday morning clinics from 10-11:30am for those rated 3.0 to 3.5 and above. As guests informed me during my stay, this clinic is a “must-do” if you’re seeking an outgoing and engaging grouping of tennis. Men are able to showcase their talents on Tuesday mornings from 10-11:30am as well, with fundamental and organized play involved. Members also organize their own court times 3-5 times weekly; truly an active community. On Mondays (5-7pm) and Saturdays (10am-12pm), Mixed Doubles Round Robins allow for high-level, enjoyable, and ultimately popular match play among both members and guests.
League play produces up to 10 total teams competing in USTA and other local Naples local leagues. Contrary to other programs, you do not have to be a member to join a Naples Grande league.
If these options suite your tennis needs but you’re interested in incorporating a complete stay around your court time, look no further, as Naples Grande offers packages and getaways that are completely customizable based on your timeframe, level, needs, and other commitments. A ladies weekend getaway could include two hours of early morning lessons before a relaxed pool day with the gals just in time for cocktails next to the court during your afternoon doubles game. If you’re planning for an elongated stay, week-long packages can be customized based on your meeting schedules, family commitments and other variables. The staff is more than willing to perfect your tennis experience time after time.
Juniors can explore the world of tennis at Naples Grande alongside other guests with the local program occurring based on age. On Wednesdays during October through May from 4-5pm, 5-9 year olds enjoy instructional and insightful play. From 5-6pm, 10-15 year olds can enjoy lighthearted and organized drilling of their own. During the popular holiday and summer seasons, juniors enjoy kids clinics up to three times per week, which is arranged through the hotel per guest and member requests.
With a world class spa, pristinely landscaped golf course designed by Rees Jones, three pools, available on-site watersport rentals, seven dining options, a modern fitness center, live events and entertainment, nature tours and pathways, and so much more, the vibe of Naples Grande simply remains unrivaled in the industry. From the tennis standpoint, Naples Grande remains heavily engaged with its guests and members to ensure all needs are met and exceeded. The PBI staffing ensures you’re receiving world class service from the sunshine state and beyond. The concepts and tactics of PBI truly remains unprecedented among other resorts. The service, attention to detail, and willingness to go above and beyond to incorporate fun with fitness will absolutely be noticed. It will be difficult to leave out tennis on your Naples itinerary once you envision the endless possibilities at Naples Grande.
