Every now and then Omaha favorite son Andy Roddick shows up at Texas Hill Countrys Horseshoe Bay Resort. But thats not why you bring your little ones to the Andy Roddick Kids Courts. It's all about scale: Larger, depressurized balls and smaller rackets and courts mean children 4-10 can get their game up to speed more quickly. Your kids can serve for a mere 25 bucks a day: the $15 resort fee youd be paying anyway plus a $10 racquet rental. Junior tennis clinics and private lessons are also available.
If youre not a tennis family, Horseshoe Bay also has a kids club for the 4-12 set ($75 full day, $40 half day, $55 dinner session), but if your children are like mine and refuse to leave your side during a trip, the club rolls out such activities as hula hoop contests and dive-in movies (set amid the pool) for the entire brood.
