Pickleball and Padel Camp Vacations

Cliff Drysdale Tennis is thrilled to expand our camp offerings to include padel and pickleball at world class resorts and destinations on the east coast including the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne and Chateau Elan Winery and Resort respectively.


Programs at the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort include staying in an enchanting 16th century-styled chateau nestled among North Georgia’s picturesque foothills. On the 3,500-acre estate, just 40 minutes North of Atlanta, Ga, sits a beautiful resort destination with a full-service winery and tasting bar, a 35,000 square foot European spa mansion, championship golf, and a variety of dining options. The Chateau Elan Racquet Club facilities include three championship hard courts, two Har-Tru clay courts, and four pickle ball courts.


Tennis and pickleball programs operate year-round and cater to a full spectrum of players, from individuals and couples to families and teams or groups. Pickleball camps include a 90-minute lesson per person daily for individuals and couples, and a 90-minute private group instructional clinic with a 2-hour coached round robin per day for groups or teams. Camps are available daily.


In May 2021, Cliff Drysdale Tennis at Chateau Elan will be hosting a pickleball and wine weekend with more details to come soon. More information on all pickleball options can be found online here:


The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne is a true destination resort that blends adventure and relaxation with its beautiful nature preserves, charming shopping villages, and golden beaches. Located on a seven mile-long barrier island south of South Beach, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami, Florida, is just minutes from Miami, yet feels miles away from the urban pulse, uniquely providing both family-friendly getaways and romantic retreats the best of both worlds.

Now with three new cutting-edge padel courts, the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne can serve up exclusive experiences to guests and locals. Miami has established itself as the no. 1 American city for padel, a sport which is extremely popular in Europe and South America, is continuing to gain momentum across the US.


Padel is a fun sport that takes elements from tennis and squash. Played on an enclosed court about 1/3 the size of a tennis court, it's a fun, social and competitive game for both new or experienced racquet sports players. Padel camps are available daily and include a 2-hour private lesson per person daily for individuals and couples, and 2 hours of private group clinics and a 90-minute organized round robin daily for groups or teams.
