Taos Tennis at Quail Ridge Taos
Taos, New Mexico
By Roger Cox, Editor
Once upon a time Taos Tennis at the Quail Ridge Taos in Taos, New Mexico, was known as the Tennis Ranch of Taos and attracted hard-core tennis vacationers with its weekend tennis camps. The resort consists of clusters of individually owned condominiums, each with a full kitchen and fireplace, while tennis remains a reason to visit.
Since 1980, Kurt Edelbrock has run a solid operation here, expanding the complex to 10 outdoor hard courts and recruiting some 200 local members to keep the facility active. He runs four sanctioned tournaments a year, a mixed doubles round robin every other week, and weekly clinics and drop-in men's doubles and women's leagues. If you show up at the courts—whether you rent one of the adjacent condos or stay anywhere else in town—and the staff will find a way to get you involved.
