What’s all the Raquet at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica?

Have you heard what’s setting the tennis world abuzz? No, it’s not about the latest injury or coaching change. It’s an exciting new court that puts travellers at a distinct advantage, if you will. Think of it as Wimbledon South.

Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo has just scored an ace with its regulation grass tennis court — the first at any Four Seasons property worldwide!

Though they first grew in popularity 100 years ago in England, grass courts make up only one percent of the world’s tennis surfaces. Still, purists crave the fast-paced games and hard-hitting serves the hard-packed grass tends to produce — not to mention the lower impact on the player’s body. The Resort’s pro instructors are now serving up private lessons and doubles clinics, as well as regular guest play.

So, pack your whites and get ready to show your opponents some “love.” The grass court really is greener at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica!

My son is truly a tennis buff, so this really appeals to us!  Here’s more on their tennis offerings specifically for kids:

Kids Tennis Carnival

Part of the Resort’s Kids For All Seasons programme, this children’s tennis package is a fun way to encourage children to run around, play games and take part in the wonderful world of tennis.

Besides the tennis, there is a world of tropical splendor that’s fun for the whole family!

    Being a tennis player, this sounds fun to me. Spending a week on grass courts would be a nice change from the pounding I get on the hard courts here is the US. Thanks for sharing this information about taking a vacation in Costa Rica. Sounds inviting to me for sure. Thanks, David

    Hard to find grass courts in the US. Be nice to play on a surface that is a little more friendly on the knees. Guess I’m getting old!

  • I love this resort in Costa Rica. This is one of the most amazing countries to take a family. With all the activities like snorkeling, surfing, hiking, horseback riding, and kayaking, tennis would probably be the last thing in my list…but yes those grass courts do sound knee friendly. -Daniella
