Tennis player.traveller. art lover. forever student.

Welcome! My name is Valerie, the founder of, a travel site dedicated to tennis players. I was introduced to tennis by my mother and it has been LOVE from the very beginning. I played college tennis and continue to play on several competitive tennis teams in Scottsdale, Arizona. Although tennis is by far my first love, I also enjoy art, history, food, and learning about different cultures. My goal is to combine all of these elements in one nice package for fellow traveling tennis fans.

People would often ask me about places I've visited, where I stayed, and ate, what I saw, what I did with my family and what's better to do solo or as a couple. I started putting together location lists in my maps and sending them to people. This inspired me to start blogging. So welcome to Tennis City Guide, where you can immerse yourself in all things tennis! You can find full detailed city guides on my website, complete with a downloadable location list for your smartphone map. On the blog I'll share loads of my tennis favorites including podcasts, books, equipment, and fashion.

Thank you for stopping by! Take a look around and feel free to contact me, I always love talking tennis!
