Cox, a writer for Tennis magazine, has produced a welcome guide to tennis programs for the general reader. Included are camps that offer serious adult instruction, as well as amenities (beach, golf, fine cuisine, nightlife). Cox's book updates older guides such as Helen Rosenbaum's Tennis Vacations (1977; o.p.) and Curtis Casewit's Guide to Tennis Resorts (1978; o.p.). It surpasses directories issued serially by the U.S. Tennis Association by evaluating strengths and weaknesses. Cox measures the rather elusive quality of "tennis atmosphere," assessing a camp's availability of courts, fees, ability to match players of comparable skill, social tennis events, and quality of instruction, including teaching methodologies. Intentionally not exhaustive, this book lists only the best places where tennis instruction is available in English. It is most useful for American tennis enthusiasts interested in vacationing relatively close to home.- Frederick J. Augustyn Jr., Library of Congress
