    Brendan and Josh were fantastic! They both made great use of our time and worked really specifically on skills that needed improvement. I’ve been able to bring those skills back to Dallas and they’ve helped improve my game already. We also did a private pickleball clinic with Brendan that was really fun. It went by too fast. Just as we were getting the hang of it, it was over but he made the experience really fun! Both guys were engaging, interested in getting to know us and genuinely seemed to care about helping us improve.

    My wife and I enjoyed a week at the Biltmore and really enjoyed the tennis facility. The Hard True courts were in great shape and the Pro, Brendan, was a great balance of instructional, fitness and fun.

    A friend and I took a private pickleball lesson with Brendan Easterling and it was a delight! My friend had never played before, so it was very beneficial to get her up to speed on the basics and beyond. Brendan is an excellent instructor and we look forward to visiting again next year. The property is amazing and offers something for everyone.

    Make time for a pickleball clinic or lesson with Brendan Easterling at the Arizona Biltmore. It’s a great facility with super instruction; he and his team created hours of fun and instruction for all levels of play in my group. And if you just want to play, the Arizona Biltmore has four great pickleball courts.

    My daughter and I had a wonderful getaway at the Arizona Biltmore! Firstly, the setting is incredible. Unique property with so much interesting history. You literally do not feel like you are in the middle of a major city. The huge variety of pools allowed for every pool activity we were looking for from fun Friday afternoon hot spot at the Saguaro Pool, to swim up bar and water slides at the Paradise pool, to quiet and reserved at the Ocatilla Pool. As a new pickeball enthusiast I scheduled two private pickleball lessons, one with Josh and one with Brendan. I learned SO much! The facilities and courts are top notch and both instructors made the sessions fun and very productive. I loved the variety of activities available each day. I was able to take the two lessons, do a yoga class, a deep water aqua workout and do a historical tour with Ashley and was a true highlight! Even my 22 year old daughter loved the tour and she is generally not a history buff. But add in some old Hollywood lore and a speakeasy and anyone will be entertained. The food, most drinks and service were all excellent. A few of the frozen pool cocktails were a little light on the liquor factor, which was disappointing for the price. Overall a huge variety of food and drink choices. Shout out to Parker at the Saguaro Pool! Very on it! Dinner at Renata was AMAZING! Not to be missed. The Queso Fundido and the Wagyu BBQ are not to be missed. Marco as our server just adding to the delight of the meal. And the Gift Shop has a wonderful staff and some really nice finds, particularly aligned with the property. If you are a Prairie Style fan the Arizona Biltmore is a must visit! We loved it so much we are already planning our next visit!

    Tennis staff was great and will definitely go back to hit with them. Great pointers that gave immediate positive results.

    Josh and Brendan were great tennis pros for our private lessons. They had individual and group tips for us that will help us in our play. Their instruction was clear and easy to follow and the drills were fun. We had a great 2 days of tennis.

    Brendan was an excellent instructor. He helped me so much in just an hour. He kept it fun but also instructional.

  • Avatar MB

    Perfect mix of instruction and play. Very knowledgeable and helpful instruction in a fun atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

  • Avatar LP

    Brendan was a terrific pro. We arranged a group of women to specifically work with him in a few private clinics over a 2 day period. His knowledge and technique were fantastic and he kept the clinic very fast paced with great energy. Highly recommend!

    Our group had such an amazing time at the Biltmore! The tennis clinics and private lessons with Brendan were perfect. Can’t wait to go back!

  • Avatar ST

    The tennis instruction was great and high yield! Brendan was absolutely the best! He was fun, energetic, and such a good instructor. We learned so much from him during our personalized drills and his instruction was catered to our level and needs. I still try to incorporate what he taught us. The other instructor we had was great too. Would love to do it again. Very highly recommended!

    I always participate in tennis programs when i travel. Your instructor was exceptional for both my private lesson and clinic. I would welcome more clinic options and coordination of afternoon match play. .

    Brendan is a superb teacher. In a short time he taught me the basics of net play and serve. He is knowledgeable, kind and a pleasure to be around.

  • Avatar PM

    Brendan, the pro, was fantastic. Really smart and a good guy.

  • Avatar SS

    My tennis was limited to private lessons with Brendan Easterling – he was a great teacher – and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and learning from him. I only wish I had a bit more time. Thanks for a great getaway!

  • Avatar JS

    We visited the Arizona Biltmore Resort in late September and the place was rocking! We had a wonderful stay. In fact, we extended our planned 2-days there by another day — just because it was so nice! Our stay included two private tennis lessons, a Saturday morning tennis clinic and an afternoon at the Spa (for massage and skin care treatments). The tennis staff, including our teaching pro, was super professional. Everything was great. The food was tasty, but — definitely expensive — and the self-parking garage was a surprising hike from the hotel lobby.

    I visited the Arizona Biltmore for a corporate event and wanted to get some tennis instruction. My interaction with Brendan and Eric were excellent. Brendan is an excellent tennis coach, really well qualified and did a fantastic job in creating some training sessions yo got the goals of what I was trying to achieve with my game. Had four sessions and each was progressively better and done in a way the sessions always built on previous coaching sessions. Brendan is also just a very personable coach who pushes you but has you at ease and relaxed and enjoying your tennis. I highly recommend the facility and Brendan and his team. Thanks for everything!

    Brendan and Josh were so much fun and excellent instructors. It is difficult to teach a stranger in one hour, and they managed to teach me something new while sharpening areas I already knew! -Kaysie Bolton

  • Avatar LH

    Brendan and Josh were exceptional! They were enthusiastic, gave wonderful and helpful tennis tips/instruction/critique/game play tips. We all learned so much and had fun while doing so. They did a wonderful job of making it fun but also helpful and informative. We learned new things and are taking away new clinic drills and games to bring to our local club. We all walked away with specific tips to work on and strategies to try. Our crew has been to several tennis vacations and they were the best, hands down!

    I went to the Arizona Biltmore with my husband for a business trip. I signed up for the Pickle Ball Clinic and Brandon was our instructor. I had the best time, learned a lot and made new friends in the clinic. Brandon kept it moving and gave really good instruction. I ended up doing a lesson the next day with the people I met in the clinic. Overall, the courts were great, the weather was incredible and the instruction was exceptional!!!

    We did a group pickleball lesson with Brendan and had the best time. Our group consisted of differing abilities and he got everyone up to speed. The lesson had a great pace to it and by the end of it all, we were scrimmaging and having the best time. Added bonus, Brendan was a great photographer for our girl group so we got a lot of great photos of us in our cute pickleball outfits!

  • Avatar MP

    I joined 2 tennis and 1 pickleball clinics, and they were so much fun. Brendan is great about making sure you get what you want out of the clinics, whether it’s more drills or games. His instruction is helpful and encouraging. I learned pickleball’s rules and techniques faster than I would have otherwise. Definitely a highlight of my trip. Highly recommend when at AZB!

  • Avatar MG

    I took a private tennis lesson and did a pickle ball clinic with Brendan. I’m a strong tennis player and Brendan was able to add dimension to my game and gave me a new skill to focus on -a 1 handed back hand. I was skeptical about the pickle ball craze, but the clinic that Brendan ran gave me a new perspective on the game. I understand the draw and look forward to playing more at home!

  • Avatar JA

    I took a private tennis lesson with Brendan and it was wonderful. I’ve recently got back into tennis after 20 years, and Brendan was able to personalize my lesson and helped me gain confidence in league play. I’m excited to take what I learned back to my home court. I highly recommend setting up time with Brendan if you visit the Biltmore.

  • Avatar JT

    I was able to schedule a private pickleball lesson with Brendan before a work dinner. Brendan took time to hear from me what I was interested in learning or practicing , and then filled our 60minutes together with relevant drills. He also shared observations about my play/technique/court position, and offered suggestions to improve my game. We finished the hour with a skinny single game, where he further challenged me and provided feedback after each point made or lost. If you have time for a private lesson, I highly recommend it!

  • Avatar ST

    WOW! I was fortunate to set up private tennis lessons with Brendan. He was an amazing instructor and playing on the clay courts was an added benefit. I learned a lot and look forward to returning again soon. I have stayed at this resort several times, and it always continues to amaze me. The heavenly surroundings, amazing staff, great work out facilities… nothing beats this resort in my view. I highly recommend this resort, and my tennis lessons were certainly a highlight for me.

  • Avatar SP

    Brendan was a fantastic partner to play Pickelball with. In one hour I learned more pointers than I’ve learned since I started playing 2 months ago. His instruction and skills are off the charts and he’s a super nice guy!

  • Avatar SP

    Brendan was a great tennis instructor. Learned several new techniques that were very helpful to my game.

  • Avatar SD

    Brendan was an awesome pro! He lead a group of 3 couples in fun games! Highly recommend!

  • Avatar DG

    Brendan was amazing and kept me and another tennis player running, hitting and improving. I was really impressed in his ability to keep a drill moving with two players of different skill level. Also learned something new about volleys, even after decades of playing. The drills were fun, the clay court was spectacular to play on and I would do it all again.

    As a solo traveler and tennis enthusiast, I was pleasantly surprised at the racquets experience I had at the Biltmore. As if playing within a fabulous backdrop of the Bitmore grounds isn’t enough, I found the tennis and pickle ball staff to be incredible on many levels. With brand new courts tucked away near the fitness center, I was able to combine my morning exercise routine with easy access to my favorite activity. The head pro Brendan was so accommodating to my last minute requests for lessons and inquiries for more social play. He brings all of the amazing things one would hope for in a PBI program but adds his own dynamic coaching style to meet the player’s needs. His articulate feedback coupled with key recommendations helped me to easily understand a few small things to improve my game in an hour. Furthermore, his enthusiasm for keeping the racquets community energetic was outstanding. He makes hotel guests who want to play in social round robins or matches feel welcome and integrated with the regular racquets community there. I’ve never played pickle before and they welcomed me with wide arms in a round robin and helped me catch on very quickly. I loved it so much I booked a lesson or clinic each following day. I am still practicing his recommendations and the adjustments I’ve made have changed my game for sure. I had such a blast at pickle ball I came home with a new hobby on my list! I can’t wait to go back and play with this great group of pros again! Can’t recommend playing here enough. The program exceeded my expectations!

  • Avatar MP

    My son and I did custom private tennis lessons with Brandon every day of our stay. It was high energy, full of the appropriate amount of technique tweaks and a great time. A very memorable experience and Brandon was awesome to work with. I highly recommend.

  • Avatar JO

    Had a great experience at the tennis courts with Brendan. He made our small group clinics super fun and lively! We will definitely return and hope to take a clinic from him again!

  • Avatar BK

    Coach Brendan is amazing! Our daughter has played a few places with pro coaches and Brendan takes his time to listen, explain and teach in a way that shows great improvement for our daughter. He is not just an expert at tennis and coaching, but the most incredibly kind coach I’ve ever met! Our daughter is excited every lesson and we couldn’t be more grateful to have him in our lives.

  • Avatar CK

    2023 Girls tennis trip to AZ! We had 3 days with Brendon and he was an exceptional instructor in every way. We played a mix of drills and live ball. He is great at customizing his play with you based on your skill level. The last day of play was just two of us and he read us right in knowing we love being challenged on the court… He ran us hard. Our time on the courts with Brendon was everything and more than what we expected. We will be back!

    The Biltmore is a beautiful, lively and pampering resort. I live in the neighborhood and have enjoyed participating In the Pickleball lessons, drills and games. My instructor Brendan was superb ! ! He provided me with excellent instruction and was do positive and encouraging. My husband and i also frequent the restaurant and bring visiting friends to the Spire bar.

    My husband and I loved the Arizona Biltmore! Such beautiful surroundings and a very special historic resort. My tennis instructor, Brandon is a gem. I am a novice and he was a great partner and gave me some important tips. Thank you for being so friendly and such a great coach.

  • Avatar SS

    The tennis facilities at The Arizona Biltmore are first class, clean and a beautiful setting surrounded by the mountains. We had a great vacation and our son (18) came mainly to play tennis. He had an amazing experience with Pro Brendan Easterling. He took several lessons during the week we were there and kept wanting to go back for more. Amazing experience. We will definitely be returning.

    Tennis was great as was the fitness center. The resort however has a scorpion problem that disrupted my stay and I ultimately cut the trip short.

  • Avatar GL

    Nice resort with a new and improved tennis program. The resort itself was crowded with conference-goers especially the common areas that were used for conference events. We visited in March. Pool area also crowded and some lines at coffee bar and restaurants during peak times. Tennis courts at the Biltmore are new and inviting. We enjoyed our lessons with the pro and appreciated his patience and the extra time he took to make our experience at the Biltmore first-class and personalized. Would definitely return and take more lessons with Brendan. A strong teacher who customizes lessons for all skill levels and makes it easy to learn and enjoy the game!

    Me, my wife, and our 11 year old son spent a week at the Biltmore. The best part of our vacation was, by far, the tennis pro, Brendan Easterling. As a collegiate tennis player, myself, who has trained our two oldest to also be collegiate tennis players, I was impressed with his technical and tactical skills. He is clearly a high-level tennis player. What made it the most memorable, though, was seeing how great a time our son had with him. We rearranged our entire vacation to make time for multiple private and group lessons for our son, because he enjoyed his first lesson so much. He couldn’t get enough time on the court with Brendan! They had so much fun together as Brendan incorporated high level challenges, and technical expertise into there lessons, especially the private sessions. He clearly loves tennis, and it comes through in his teaching. Even though our son trained with him every day, he didn’t want to leave, and couldn’t get enough time with him. It is the most fun we could have, as parents, seeing our son have so much fun and grow his game, at the same time! We will definitely be back to visit him again. The only thing that we weren’t fond of was the remodeling taking place. The pool area nearest our room was closed for construction, which was disappointing. Otherwise, a great experience and we will definitely be back.

    Beautiful, historic resort, with may activities for all ages. The fitness and tennis/pickleball staff is amazing. Our private lessons were exceptional.

  • Avatar AW

    Facilities are conveniently located and well maintained. Brendan Easterling has created a welcoming atmosphere for jr and adult tennis players of all levels. He was responsive and incredibly accommodating of my busy meeting schedule to enable me to fit in as much tennis as possible. I am a competitive recreational player, and the coaching I received exceeded my expectations. I took away several new practical skills and mental tips that I still use regularly. A greater number of potential players to hit with might be the only thing that could have further enhanced my stay, so if you play tennis don’t stay anywhere else so long as Brendan and his team are at the helm of the program. Thank you!

  • Avatar JD

    Brendan Easterling was excellent to hit with over new years. I was looking for a major work out and he provided it. Tons of fun and I hope to hit with him again soon.

  • Avatar AL

    I’ve taken lessons from Brendan the last couple times I’ve been on holiday in Phoenix. He was very helpful in improving my game, in particular my volleys with a new grip. He also has a fun, relaxed style which makes the lesson highly enjoyable. Definitely recommend!

  • Avatar PG

    We took a private 4 person pickleball session with Brendan and had the best time literally. He was so amazing and informative and kind, mostly all beginners. We had such. great time and can’t wait to go back!!!!!!

  • Avatar AG

    Brendan in charge of racquet sports was amazing and quickly saw meaningful ways to improve my game. Great combination of instruction and play without being overwhelming. The temps clinic we did was fun and Brendan did a great job of mixing things up for optimal fairness on the courts. Only criticism would be that I wished they had daily programs.

  • Avatar RT

    The Arizona Biltmore is beautiful in every way imaginable. There are plenty of pools and activities, plus the food and drinks were excellent. We took a private pickle ball lesson with Brendan and love it so much! He was patient and personable, and we enjoyed the lesson and banter. Highly recommend!

  • Avatar JM

    This was our second trip to the Arizona Biltmore. On our first, my partner booked us a pickleball lesson with Brendan so that I could learn to play. Brendan was so skilled and encouraging that it sparked my now near-obsession with pickleball! We couldn’t wait to return and we booked another lesson with him and open play/clinic. Not only did we learn more tips to improve our play, we had a blast. The facilities are awesome and Brendan is an amazing instructor.

  • Avatar BH

    Resort itself is great, grounds are beautiful. Remember seeing 7 courts, all the same surface (that stuff they used to use at the Aussie open…felt good on the knees but really slowed the ball up). Took a lesson from Lon(the head pro), and in a little over an hour, he keyed in on two quirks, and gave me fixes. Excellent instruction.
    Match finding was non existent. clinics were on the weekend, thus didn’t get to participate. had ball machines and other rentals on site. was no problem getting a court. if you like tennis and want a great place to stay, this is it, but if you want a full blown tennis resort…not so much.

  • Avatar PH

    I was there for a business conference, went to the sports center, they had no game matching actively going on, but they did have instructors and a ball machine and lit courts. I hit on the machine ($45/hr) and found a person to play with the following day on my own. Courts were nice, the instructors were friendly, but not much of a program.
