Happy Times!

Tony - Cassi and Jonah had the best week ever!  I wish they could be this happy always...thanks to you, your wife, and wonderful staff.  It was a great week for my grandchildren and a real thrill because my children went as well in their youth. This camp has definitely maintained its high standards of tennis as well as fun. For sure we will see you next summer!

Perfectly Prepared

Thank you for a great week for the girls. Laura and Olivia Hass both have rave reviews for the program and staff. Your daily schedule and tennis drills were so helpful. Both girls improved their tennis skills and are more prepared for the high school tennis team this fall. Thank you.

Jaded teenager gets excited!

For the second year in a row, my jaded teenager said, That is the best camp on the planet! I want to go back for two weeks next year!" He loved EVERYTHING about it and where I normally can't get him to provide details about his day, he couldn't wait to tell me every last funny thing about the camp and the great people who run it! Thank goodness for Granlibakken!!

Exceeded all expectations!

I didn't quite know what to expect as this was the first time attending a Nike Tennis camp, but whatever I imagined it to be, it was that and even better. I learned so much, not only improving my strokes and form, but my love of the sport. I've constantly been on the courts ever since the camp, continuing to practice and improve. I have felt more confident about my game, and owe it all to this camp. Thank you again!
