The Punta Mita Tennis Club, managed by Peter Burwash International and Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, was ranked a Gold Medal Resort by Tennis Resorts Online, a respected resource for searching out premier resorts with a strong program for tennis instruction and play. Results were published this May, 2013, and the Punta Mita Tennis Club got classified among the Top 100 Tennis Resorts & Camps in the World.
Each year, Tennis Resorts Online polls thousands of racquet-wielding vacationers worldwide and compiles their collective experience into this annual ranking of the top 75 Tennis Resorts and top 25 Tennis Camps. The resorts were assessed in 20 different categories that spanned all aspects of the tennis experience together with off-court characteristics as accommodations, dining, children’s programs, and overall value.
Certainly part of the credit can be attributed to the recent addition of Arturo Navarro, a Peter Burwash International Professional, as the director of the Tennis Program at Club Punta Mita. Originally from Mexico City, Arturo grew up playing tennis since the age of 3, going on to progress as a top Junior player who was ranked #3 nationally among players under 18. He continued competing in tennis throughout collage, earning a scholarship to play NCAA Division 1 Tennis first at the University of Tennessee, and later at the University of Nebraska. He joined the prestigious Peter Burwash International (PBI) program following graduation, and was posted in PBI facilities including Four Seasons Resort Sharm and El-Sheikh in Egypt. He returned in November 2012 to his homeland of Mexico as PBI Director of the tennis program at Club Punta Mita.
The Punta Mita program caters to a broad mix of skill levels, as well as offers an active kids’ tennis program. Resort guests and residents enjoy the facilities and instruction offered, and Four Seasons Resort enjoys a healthy number of repeat guests who play tennis, as well as numerous referrals from within the PBI network.
For tennis-playing travelers of all skill levels, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is offering an I LOVE Tennis Package, to combine with one of their special resort stay programs. Suitable for all ages and ability levels, this includes, with your accommodations:
- 60 minute private or semi-private tennis lesson
