Sea Colony named among world’s Top 20 tennis resorts, camps


Located just south of Bethany Beach, Sea Colony has recently increased its standing among the world’s elite tennis destinations, according to Tennis Resorts Online (TRO)’s 2019 rankings released on May 1.

Sea Colony is one of just four destinations to earn a place in this year’s TRO global Top 20 for both tennis resorts and tennis camps.

TRO’s annual rankings are determined by tennis players, who were asked to evaluate resorts and camps in 20 categories, including tennis programs, instruction, lodging, restaurants and value. This year’s global recognition adds to decades of local, regional and national honors earned by the southern Delaware resort community and its tennis staff.
