Without a doubt, this is the place to come play tennis while Venice. 4 perfect clay courts, several covered courts with a fake grass surface (no AC but you don't get direct sun) and a few other courts. Must important, the teacher I had was superb if you can take a lesson in Italian. His name is Andrea and he is a former top player from the Veneto. Today with his partner Luca who also teaches there he is ranked in the top 5 doubles teams in Italy in the over 40 category. Suffice it to say that he is a superb player and an absolutely charming man. I enjoyed every minute of our grueling workouts (which last 45-50 minutes). He has been teaching there for over 20 years. And here is the best part - the lesson is only 30 euros including court time. Suffice it to say that it was the best tennis deal I've ever found.
After a grueling workout, you can cool yourself down in the huge pool or go to the well air conditioned gym which has a huge assortment of free weights and machines - its much better than the standard exercise room in even the best hotels because it's a free standing gym.
On the downside, it is far away from the action at the heart of the Lido but very efficient buses which run every ten minutes and stop very close to the hotel will get you there in about 10 minutes. But you may decide you don't want to leave. Hope this helps any other fanatic tennis players planning a trip to the Serenissima. Btw, you don't have to stay at the hotel to take the lessons. If you do take a lesson with Andrea, tell him Guido from Manhattan sent you:)
