Fun and Challenging!

I really enjoyed having Conner as my coach and all the private lessons that he and Luke gave to me. Thanks so much! My love for the game is greater now and my game has improved so much! Most of all, I had FUN!!!

New Love for Tennis!!

Our daughter came to the camp with ZERO tennis experience. She loved it, felt very supported and encouraged, learned the basics, and wants to try out for her high school team this year. That's everything that we hoped for - and didn't think was really possible. She'll be back next year. Well Done!

Summer Fun!

This camp had to be the best week of the summer. The tennis activities and night activities were very fun. I am definitely coming back next year.

Life Skills Learned On The Court

My son’s game improved significantly, but the biggest thing my sons learned from this camp was their sportsmanship improved dramatically. My 11 year old and 9 year old play against each other often, however my youngest would always get very angry when his older brother would beat him. Now my youngest says things to his older brother like “great shot” and he is no longer obsessed with “beating” him. Also their strokes, especially their backhand are amazing and the boys say the camp was the best. The boys now talk about playing in tournaments and they want to hit every day. Thank you for this amazing camp. I would recommend it to any parent that wants to send their child to a superior tennis camp!

Felt Challeneged

My son is very interested in attending the camp again in the future. He felt challenged and I think this experience will help motivate him to progress his game in the next year.
