Sensei Porcupine Creek to Host Wellness-Based Tennis Program

The newly debuted luxury wellness retreat Sensei Porcupine Creek has announced a returning, exclusive three-night tennis program for guests taking place December 7- 10, in partnership with the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. The program will be led by former professional tennis player Tommy Haas, who competed on the ATP Tour for more than 20 years and earned 15 titles throughout his successful career, including reaching a World No. 2 ranking. Sensei Porcupine Creek, which was formerly a 230-acre private estate, was converted into an ultra-luxury wellbeing retreat complete with wellness and sports programming and world-class tennis facilities including three courts that are built to match the professional courts of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden and only available to retreat guests.

Guests will partake in a blend of Sensei’s existing world-class wellness and tennis offerings, paired with specialty experiences only available to guests of this program, complete with court time with Haas and team including Sensei’s onsite tennis pro, Caroline Vis, herself a successful former Pro and Wimbledon semi-finalist; exclusive access behind the scenes at the renowned Indian Wells Tennis Garden — home to the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament — and a chance to play where the pros play on the 16,100-seat Stadium 1. “We’re thrilled to welcome tennis enthusiasts to Sensei Porcupine Creek’s formerly invite-only professional-grade tennis facilities, offering enriching instruction for all levels of play,” says Julie Oliff, general manager at Sensei Porcupine Creek. “This once-in-a-lifetime program goes far beyond a typical tennis clinic to incorporate our wellbeing paths of Move, Nourish and Rest. It allows guests to hone their skills through the help of best-in-class professionals, such as Tommy Haas and our own, Caroline Vis.”

Package rates begin at $8,950 per guest for accommodations in the Estate House, or for those looking for a built-in doubles group, two-bedroom villas start at $7,375 per guest (based on two couples staying together).

The Tommy Haas Tennis Program includes the following experiences:
