Palm Island Resort is a unique vacation hideaway on the west coast of Florida located south of Tampa/St. Petersburg between Sarasota and Fort Myers. The resort offers 100 privately owned villas in “Old Florida” style architecture on a two-mile stretch of pristine natural beachfront which is accessible only by boat or car ferry. When you depart from the car ferry or tie up at the docks, it’s an unmistakable feeling of relaxation as you approach Palm Island Resort. The resort has a reputation as being at the pinnacle of Southwest Florida’s family of coastal island communities.

Directing the PBI tennis program is veteran PBI professional, Art Santos. A former Hawaii State collegiate champion and #1 player for the University of Hawaii - Hilo, Art's PBI career has included assignments in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, St, Kitts, Austria, Oman, China and then, for over 20 years, at the Sports Core in Kohler, Wisconsin. A USPTA certified elite professional, Art is a former Wisconsin 'Pro of the Year' and considered to be one of PBI's best coaches.
