DESTIN, Fla.--May 31, 2013-- Hidden Dunes Beach & Tennis Resort earned the ranking as one of the "Top 50 Tennis Resorts" by  Tennis Resorts Online for the second consecutive year. Nestled along the sugar white sand beaches of South Walton in the Florida Panhandle, Hidden Dunes Beach & Tennis Resort features six championship clay Rubico courts and consistently receives high marks for overall tennis experience, tennis staff, instruction and game matching.

Tennis Resorts Online noted that the reason Hidden Dunes Beach & Tennis Resort consistently makes the list can be traced directly to the engaging staff. Tennis Director Renee Broxson took over direction of the program in August 2011 after six years as Hidden Dunes head pro. Broxson's background and experience, including successfully coaching the women's tennis team at University of West Florida for six years and serving as director of tennis at Pensacola Country Club, make her well-suited to lead the Hidden Dunes tennis program. Broxson brought on George Cobia to serve as head tennis professional. Cobia, who has been a level 1 United States Tennis Professional for 25 years, designs and implements the instructional clinics and lessons, ensuring players go home with an improved game. Anne Toone is the pro shop manager and is expert at putting together matches for players of like-level.

"We are thrilled to continue to be recognized among the top 50 tennis resorts," said Hidden Dunes Director of Tennis Renee Broxson, USPTA. "We've become known for our customer service, especially our game matching, so we plan to build on that." 

The 27-acre, secluded beach-front resort features condos, cottages and villas, which are tucked away amid trees, lush gardens and fountains, providing a quiet oasis for tennis enthusiasts and beach lovers. The well-appointed Destin vacation rentals range from three- and four-bedroom beach villas to two-bedroom gulf-front condos and Carolina-style cottages with private screened porches.

"People like coming to South Walton and Destin for the emerald water and beautiful pristine beaches, and we aim to enhance the beach experience by offering exceptional courts, instruction and game matching services for the avid tennis player," continued Broxson, who hopes to attract more small groups and teams.
