La Quinta Palm Springs Tennis

Tennis-Top100Voted one of the top tennis resorts in the world, La Quinta Resort Tennis Club attracts a veritable Who’s Who of celebrities and pros – from Novak Djokovic to Maria Sharapova. The tennis program got underway in 1978 when a consortium of famed former players – led by Charlie Pasarell, along with Tom Gorman, Arthur Ashe, Stan Smith, Bob Lutz, Marty Riessen, Roscoe Tanner and Dennis Ralston – joined forces to create one of the premier tennis facilities in the country. Pasarell and his team helped the resort gain national attention by staging a high-profile professional tournament sponsored by Grand Marnier, now known as the BNP Paribas Open, which eventually resulted in the resort’s sunken tournament-style center court, built in 1981.
