    This is an excellent academy for skills development; particularly doubles. Bringing a group of 8 or 12 is my advice. We had six married couples on three courts. We were able to mix and match men’s, women’s and mixed drills and games. There are breaks in between play to discuss, so it wasn’t exhausting to me. It is 3 hrs Fri, 3 hrs Sat and 2 hrs Sun. So, 8 altogether. It’s a good way to learn some more advanced doubles strategies and tactics. There are nice locker rooms and lounges for before and after. They played some tunes and people had some laughs. There is a lot of creativity that goes in to the games. I found the time to pass fairly quickly.

    Visited Boars Head for a tennis academy. The tennis professionals and facilities were top notch and I learned so much. Would definitely recommend and will be returning again for more!

  • Avatar MG

    Brian Glass puts on an exceptional tennis clinic. It is very well run and we always come away with new techniques and strategies.

  • Avatar KS

    Love coming here with my tennis friends for tennis clinics, visits to nearby wineries, and enjoying the resort.

  • Avatar JC

    We came to Boars Head Inn with our tennis team for a Tennis Academy. The facilities were outstanding and the instruction was geared perfectly for our level. We all belong to a tennis club but really appreciated the level of skill that the pros possessed. We all excitedly discussed all the tips we had learned at the end of each evening over wine in the beautiful resort. I can’t wait to return next year

  • Avatar AO

    Great tennis clinics. Brian Glass was exceptional once again. Loads of fun with great instruction.

  • Avatar RR

    Absolutely fantastic for a 3 day camp session. Came with a total of eight players and received exceptional training. The staff and facilities are absolutely world class. The indoor facility is amazing and ensures you won’t miss a session because of weather. We do this every year because it’s great instruction, great facilities and they treat everyone amazingly!

  • Avatar AW

    Fantastic experience! The staff are amazing! I highly recommend!

  • Avatar VM

    We visited boars head for a group tennis academy and it was fabulous. Our entire team had a wonderful time and learned so much from all the pros, who were knowledgeable, fun, and incredibly well organized by Brian. We have been back three times and we have already booked for next year!

  • Avatar JR

    The Boar’s Head Tennis Academy is an annual event for our Suburban tennis team just prior to the start of our Spring season. It’s a great way to get our team members primed and prepared for our competition and shake off the winter….many players don’t have access to indoor courts over the Winter. Brian Glass and his team of Pros are always very welcoming and highly skilled. They keep us moving on the courts and runs awesome drills. Brian keeps a watchful eye on everything and will slow things down for us if there are certain skills that need more work. 3 hours is a perfect amount of time to learn and execute and play. Our team wouldn’t miss the opportunity to attend a Tennis Academy at Boar’s Head. I went twice this year already!!

  • Avatar KM

    Brian and his team run a wonderful program. This was my 2nd year at the tennis academy with our team and it will not be our last! We look forward to going again next year.

  • Avatar JK

    The tennis academy was really great. Brian Glass is a fantastic pro, and kept us engaged and learning the entire time while making it high energy and fun! My game and doubles strategy has definitely improved!

  • Avatar EM

    Brian Glass’ programs at the adult tennis academy are simply excellent. He is a motivating, knowledgeable and kind tennis professional.

  • Avatar JD

    Brian, Troy and Tyson created a great environment for our ladies tennis weekend. They were encouraging, taught us new skills and tactics, gave good feedback and lots of opportunities to reinforce what we were learning. And they kept us moving and engaged throughout. We look forward to coming back!

  • Avatar AB

    Absolutely wonderful! Thanks to Brian, Tyson, and Betsy for outstanding instruction and making our day such fun! Annette Bradley

  • Avatar EF

    Great staff! Here are some of our favorites….we loved Brian Glass, Betsy Nugent and Troy Porco in particular! Very lively. Encouraging. Professional. When I returned, I felt like family.

  • Avatar CP

    I have taken multiple groups of 8 – 16 players to the Boars Head tennis academy twice a year for over five years. I find the facilities and instructors to be excellent. They are very experienced – some of them coaches for the University of Virginia Tennis Teams – and able to be flexible in customizing the program for the needs of participants. There are many good restaurants in the area, as well as wineries, breweries, distilleries and Cideries (is that a word?). I have also been at the facility for USTA championships and find the courts and facilities to be great. I highly recommend the Boars Head Resort Tennis Programs.

  • Avatar SR

    This is a great place to get fit, play tennis, enjoy the Blue Ridge, golf, and is very close to a ton of wineries, brewpubs, and distilleries. There is a lot of history. If you like biking you can bike or hike. Charlottesville is a fantastic area.

  • Avatar ST

    It is “Covid time” yet they have not adjusted the staffing versus the amenities offered. If insufficient staffing then reduce what it offered. Better to have fewer amenities that are good to excellent than trying to do something that is not well staffed and all have an awful experience.

  • Avatar EO

    For the money – this is as good as it gets — all w/in a short drive of incredible hiking and beauty of the Blue Ridge

  • Avatar JM

    Tennis staff is phenomenal; as are clinics and the junior program. Wonderful pro support of USTA teams and beautiful indoor and outdoor facilities.

  • Avatar SL

    I. Think the food options at the sports club are terrible. There is no social space for tennis players to have a beer after tennis and a good meal. Even the food at Birdwood is very limited an unhealthy.

  • Avatar RF

    This is one of the top racquet resorts in the world, hands down!

  • Avatar PB

    i’ve been a member of the bhsc for decades.great facility,friendly members and staff.well maintained.

  • Avatar JN

    There are more tennis courts here than you can count including indoor, outdoor clay and outdoor hard courts. The tennis vibe here is outstanding – there are tons of people of all ages playing regularly. The resort is top-notch too with excellent dining and a new golf course including a par-3 course. Atop that, Charlottesville is a great mountain town with lots to do.

  • Avatar PB

    Brian Glass and his team of pros did a terrific job of keeping us moving, entertained and learning. The setting and the weather just couldn’t be beat, also. We will definitely be back!

  • Avatar LD

    The staff is excellent and knowledgable and very courteous We have truly enjoyed being a member of the Boars Head Sports Club for many years and it continues to improve. We feel very fortunate to have such a great facility to enjoy and use!

  • Avatar JA

    Boar’s Head Sports Center is a terrific resource for me, other members and guests. Great facilities and superb pros and support staff. Both indoor and outdoor courts are great. They have made the facilities available as much as possible during Covid19 outbreak.

  • Avatar MF

    Staff is great tnd they make sure you get to play with good players and the overall experience is fantastic: skill and fun and friendly

  • Avatar GM

    The facilities are amazing. Plenty of players at all levels. Super instruction. Can’t imagine a better tennis club.

  • Avatar RR

    Recent renovations are lovely! Spa was not yet open & I look forward to going back for tennis & spa weekend. Request a newly renovated guest room.

  • Avatar JN

    The instruction at Boar’s Head is incredible. The staff knows how to keep us moving and is always willing to stop for just a second to give a tip without disrupting the flow of the program.

  • Avatar MM

    Strengths: great accommodations, excellent group of tennis instructors, excellent facilities (both indoor and outdoor), good restaurants, beautiful physical location, weaknesses: no reallyoutstanding tennis shop

  • Avatar AT

    The tennis programs and instructors are amazing. The pickle ball program is fun and growing especially with dedicated courts being built right now. Great club!!

  • Avatar AB

    We enjoyed the clinics and the staff very much.

  • Avatar TY

    Beautiful setting and atmosphere, friendly staff, great amenities and options. All around wonderful!

  • Avatar SS

    Boar’s Head Resort offers one of the best tennis experiences around. Not only are the pros and programs amazing, but there is an extra energy in the air because the top-ranked UVA tennis teams share the space. You may leave the court to find the UVA women playing Duke or the UVA men battling Wake Forrest. Kids love it here, with a climbing wall, ping pong, a pool, squash, tennis, and all kinds of other activities, organized and free-range.

  • Avatar BM

    Locared in an area that has many other options such as vineyards, hiking, and many historical sites.

  • Avatar KY

    I am a regular member and find the tennis programs extremely strong as are the coaching staff.

  • Avatar JK

    Boar Head’s strengths are the friendly coaches and the wide variety of classes available daily. The vibe is very relaxed and facilities are excellent. I can’t think of any negatives.

  • Avatar AJ

    It’s the greatest spot you can imagine in a beautiful area. If you’re a tennis player and you don’t go enjoy this place you are really missing out. It’s the best I’ve seen.

  • Avatar MW

    Great facilities. Staff that’s highly motivated to ensure your satisfaction. .

  • Avatar KV

    I’ve been to Boar’s Head Resort for their tennis camp three times and love it! The pros are exceptional and, even though we are in a group, they take time to work with each person individually. I have improved my timing, strokes and strategy every single time. The facilities are top notch. I can’t wait to go again.

  • Avatar LR

    Nice and friendly staff at this resort. The head tennis pro runs a terrific tennis program with a fantastic staff of pros to fit everyone’s needs and personality. The gym was just retrofitted with all new equipment. The newly renovated restaurant is going to be awesome!!

  • Avatar MK

    This is a truly amazing resort. With 14 outdoor courts & 12 indoor courts, you can always find a court to use. There are a multitude of drop in clinics at every level to choose from, and many tennis professionals. Love it!

  • Avatar KM

    The resort ihas been in renovation and expansion mode for the last few years. The beautifully designed and newly renovated dining areas and resort lobby are ready to open just in time for the outdoor spring tennis season in beautiful Charlittesville, Virginia.

  • Avatar JD

    Great clinics and winnerup sessions Great instructors

  • Avatar MM

    Love the Boar’s Head Tennis scene. The facilities are unrivaled, and the pros have the time and ability to meet the needs of every level player. There is an active group of local players – of all abilities – who take advantage of the club’s welcoming atmosphere.

  • Avatar CS

    Strengths are the availability of both indoor and outdoor, in particular outdoor clay courts; drop-in clinics, leagues, and social play for all levels; and quality of tennis instructors. Weaknesses include the scheduling of maintenance that impedes early morning play times during the indoor season. High fees for court time during peak hours. Need a more expansive pro-shop for tennis.

  • Avatar PJ

    Dave Hardy has set up two custom weekend academies for me and my partner. We are 3.0 players (singles and doubles). He did a great job meeting us where we are and helping us identify specific improvements to our mechanics/technique. The facility is top-notch, with great locker rooms, gym, pool, on-site restaurant, parking. Charlottesville is a great weekend getaway for couples! Recommend staying downtown for easy access to restaurants. Boar’s Head is a 10-minute drive outside the city center.

  • Avatar BM

    Great value and plenty opportunities to get on the court.

  • Avatar JS

    Excellent facilities and staff. Tough restaurant situation while they undergo renovation.

  • Avatar CM

    Fabulous instructors- Jon, Dave and Troy are some of the best I’ve experienced. They are clear in their explanations, purposeful with the demonstrations and activities, and all have s great sense of humor which makes the experience fun. Will definitely attend again and again!

  • Avatar LG

    Jon and Dave are amazing instructors, always well prepared with fun drills and great doubles strategies. They have improved my game significantly.

  • Avatar NJ

    Charlottesville is such a wonderful place to come for a tennis vacation. The Boars Head Tennis Academy was great for my group of ladies. We all play together a great deal and we need to work on strategy not technique. The pros at this facility catered a special program designed for our group. Everyone’s game was improved by taking this together. Grab a group of players and come enjoy learning and playing together! You will not regret it.

  • Avatar WB

    Awesome facilities. Great pros. Superior instruction. Excellent communications. Competitive rates. And fun!

  • Avatar CR

    Simply wonderful. The Tennis instruction was great, informative and fun. The lodging was very comfortable and we could walk to the Tennis facility which was outstanding!

  • Avatar BN

    Superb tennis academy with top-notch instructions. The things I learned there have been incredibly useful in my league play. The guts are professional, but also friendly and down-to-earth. The teaching method is always positive. The facilities are very nice and often have tournaments to watch. I will certainly return!

  • Avatar DG

    This camp was perfect for me. As an adult who has experience, the lessons were designed to build on my strengths. The pacing was intense but accommodated my comfort level. The setting in Charlotte siville was gorgeous. One of the best experiences I have had

  • Avatar BD

    Outstanding instructional tennis academy and clinics with hands-on pros. Excellent guidance on strategy, movement and positioning. Individually works with each of the group participants on their requested weaknesses or areas of improvement. Great follow up from the instructors on lessons/clinics. A favorite of our northern Virginia tennis group with many happy players, experience in playing and improvement of our entire tennis game.

  • Avatar JH

    With 12 beautiful indoor hard courts, 10 Har-Tru clay courts, additional outdoor courts, a world-class squash facility, pools, fitness facilities, and all the great amenities you would expect from a world class resort, Boar’s Head offers a great experience to its members and guests. The staff is friendly and helpful, and multiple pros are always available to help improve your play. If you’re a tennis lover, this is a must if your travel plans include central Virginia.

  • Avatar KC

    The Boars Head is an amazing full service tennis resort with a first class tennis pro, Jon Sarosiek. You can play indoors or outdoors, on well maintained clay or hard surface courts . If you are segueing to pickle ball, that is offered as well. There is a new, world class squash facility in case you want to continue to broaden your racquet skills. There are hiking trails and three large pools including a “quiet” adult pool adjacent to the Boars Head Inn Spa. The fitness facility boasts private cycling studios, yoga and a wide assortment of fitness classes as well as state of the art fitness equipment.

  • Avatar RK

    Fantastic tennis club, with tennis available for all levels!

  • Avatar EF

    Strengths – Great facilities and staff. I am a member.

  • Avatar SF

    Awesome, welcoming and easy. It will be even better when the newly designed golf course and 3 par course are finished. Tennis club, pools, spa, fitness are top notch.

  • Avatar SM

    The Boar’s Head is a humming place–LOTS of social events, beautiful indoor hard-surface and outdoor clay courts, and a busy work-out area with excellent personal trainers. The facility is able to accommodate professional tennis tournaments as well as USTA-sponsored tournaments and charity events. The racquet ball center is one of the top tournament sites in the country. Pickleball enthusiasts will be pleased with both indoor and outdoor court time, as well as qualified instructors. The Boars Head also sponsors national-level pickleball tournaments. Top this off with a large swimming pool and an outside cafe overlooking the pool area. The Birdwood Golf Course is within walking distance and offers its own cafe for snacks and drinks with a beautiful mountain view. The historic University of Virginia campus is just a few minutes away. The city of Charlottesville and the surrounding areas offer lots of dining choices, local wineries, cideries, and craft breweries.

    The Boar’s Head has great tennis facilities and an amazing tennis director! They have serveral amazing tennis pros and the tennis camps are really great!

  • Avatar CH

    Awesome Inn, great food. Incredible indoor tennis facility. And, just in case, a world-class squash facility as well.

  • Avatar GF

    Great coaching, well kept facility with many courts. The kids scene here is particularly good. They socialize, play tennis, and have a great time together.

  • Avatar JD

    This is hands down the best tennis resort I have attended. They consistently have a plan and the drills complement the plan so that players have a clear direction. My game has grown so much in the years I have worked with Jon and Dave. I highly recommend his camp/clinics.

  • Avatar CG

    These guys at Boar’s Head are amazing! They listen, they watch and they strive to make everyone be a better tennis player. They really pay attention. I have attended a few tennis academies from these pros and learn many new things each time. The facility is top notch as well as the training you’ll get from Jon & Dave. 5 stars guys! Really there are no weaknesses that I can think of. Maybe a better discount in the tennis shop? I have traveled the country taking many tennis clinics and I’m proud to have these guys only an hour away from me. Besides Charlottesville, Virginia is amazing place to visit with Mountains, wineries, breweries and great for foodie people.

  • Avatar ZS

    Just got back from a tennis weekend at the Boars Head Resort and couldn’t be happier with the way it went. Everything from the instruction/advice, drills and overall organization of the training exceeded my expectations. Jon and Dave ran a great clinic for me and 5 other guys – lots of hard work and lots of fun. They kept the intensity level high for 3 hours of drilling and gave great advice on some improvements I could make to my game. The resort and facilities were top notch. Courts were in excellent condition (played on both indoor hard and outdoor clay) and the amenities of the club were great. I have been to tennis resorts all over the country and The Boars Head ranks right up there with the best. If you are looking for a beautiful resort, great facility and excellent instruction – you will find them all at the Boars Head.

  • Avatar JC

    Boar’s Head is a great racquet-sport facility (not only tennis, but also squash and pickleball). Courts are professional-quality (UVA’s men’s and women’s tennis and squash teams train and play there), and the staff is friendly and highly competent. We’ve become members at Boar’s Head, and I can say that it has been one of the best decisions that our family has ever made!

  • Avatar AB

    Amazing facility. Beautiful tennis courts and spa. Great food and excellent service.

  • Avatar GF

    Fantastic coaches working hard (they’re so dedicated) in a really good facility with indoor and outdoor courts. Many players at all levels (including kids) to match with. A really good, friendly yet competitive kids scene. Kids playing chess or doing homework while waiting for their matches. My kids just can’t get enough of it they love it so much. Pro tournaments and social tournaments regularly scheduled.

  • Avatar CB

    Boars Head is nestled in the beautiful Virginia rolling hills and has an excellent tennis program. The courts are very well maintained and the facilities are beautiful and highly functional. The coaching staff has a lot of experience, but what sets them apart is their attention to each player and their very apparent LOVE for tennis. Had a blast!

  • Avatar PR

    Great tennis, great pro.

  • Avatar CG

    I i visit weekly and have for years

  • Avatar JM

    I am a club member and very much enjoy the Tennis program. The pros are great, selection of tennis clinics and courts for play. There has been an increased interest by resort guests which I like…to meet and play with different people. This past fall there was a guest who fled one of the hurricanes in Florida. Her name was Jasmine and she was a good player. She came to clinics daily and we became friends. She has family in the area and plans to come back when in town. That is a good sign for Boars Head….how I feel about Tennis resorts I visit in my travels.

  • Avatar BB

    The Boar’s Head is an amazing place. It is the perfect place for families and retirees alike. The staff at this Sports club and Resort are helpful and accommodating. They make the experience even more special. Whether you want to be a full time member or you are visiting short term, the Boar’s Head is the place to be.

  • Avatar AR

    I absolutely loved my time spent hitting at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. Dave was just one of the many amazing instructors who absolutely served as a role model for both respect & professionalism as he was both persevering & tireless with his teaching. Dave was always so positive & he was quickly able to see his students abilities & limitations. He made it his priority, to look for the quintessential experience for each, & all of his students!!! Looking for a truly fabulous time learning new techniques with your tennis & having a wonderful experience? Well, then Boar’s Head should be your new Tennis Destination!!! It was an absolutely beautiful, breathtaking & fun place to visit in the Blue Ridge Mountains, & you can have a fabulous time playing tennis for sure, along with all of the other wonderful things available!!!

  • Avatar LL

    Recently did a weekend tennis academy at the Boars Head Sports Club. We had three pro’s working with us. The instruction was top of the line, the pro’s were very positive and encouraging in their teaching methods. They were also very open to hearing suggestions on what we liked and if there was anything we disliked. With a group of 12 ladies our time spent on the courts was very high quality and a lot of play time involved. The facility was easy to find, the amenities inside were of high standard and we definitely got our moneys worth. Can’t wait to return again in the Spring!

  • Avatar BT

    Outstanding facilities and staff. Teaching is very high quality
