Tennis in Palm Springs
“I didn’t aspire to be a good sport; ‘Champion’ was good enough for me.”
— Fred Perry
Tennis is a storied game, resplendent with historic matches, iconic champions, and great ambassadors of the sport. It is easy to learn but hard to master, a hallmark of any worthy pursuit.
Every year in March, Palm Springs turns its attention to the courts during the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament, often referred to as the ‘fifth major’. Held at Indian Wells Tennis Garden, it boasts the second largest tennis stadium in the world.
To watch the world’s best play, Chris Hagen, Chef Concierge says there are several ways to enjoy the action. “It’s a beautiful venue. Get a day pass and walk around. Soak in the atmosphere. There’s nothing like it.”
The main stadium has more than 16,000 seats, including 44 private suites, so there is a vantage point for all tastes. Prepaid tickets and parking are required, and Chris says she can arrange transportation if requested. “Calling us ahead of time will ensure you get the very best experience.”
Parker Palm Springs is well known among tennis aficionados and tennis groupies alike as one of the best tennis resorts in Palm Springs. With four spectacular Terre Battu tennis courts and three gorgeous swimming pools, our private estate is worthy of its reputation as a place that is easy to get to but hard to leave.
The nuances of the game are a little different at Parker Palm Springs. Politeness or savagery, tennis whites or neon brights, singles or doubles – that’s up to you, just remember that the clay is forgiving and don’t forget to slide. Consider ordering a drink at the Lemonade Stand before you start, and we will deliver it to you. The courts are lit for night play and private lessons are available. Reservations recommended.
After a hard-fought game, one of our swimming pools is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Each pool has its own special ambience – and soundtrack – to put you in just the right mood. When it is time to cool off, a dip in the heavenly-touch temperature waters will refresh the body, if not the soul.
Ad-in or ad-out, ace or double fault, a day on our Palm Springs tennis courts is nirvana for novice and pro alike.
