Nike Tennis Camp at University of San Diego

Bill and Shelly Scott have combined with the University of San Diego (USD) Women’s Tennis Coach, Sherri Stephens, to take their long running Nike La Jolla Tennis Camp to the University of San Diego. USD Nike Tennis Camp boasts superior tennis facilities, weather, food service, and location. Bill, Shelly, and Sherri have 70+ combined years of directing tennis camps to ensure a positive tennis experience for all who attend.

"Come work hard, improve your game and make new friends. We focus on sportsmanship, individual improvement and having tons of fun both on and off the court… all in our family atmosphere." - Coach Bill Scott

The USD campus, built in Spanish Renaissance style, is situated on 180 acres of mesa overlooking San Diego’s beautiful Mission Bay. It has been rated as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. The USD campus provides a safe, secure environment, and add an exciting cultural dimension to the total camp experience. Residence campers really absorb the college environment, since they are staying in the college dorms and dining at the Student Life Pavilion, where all college students eat regularly throughout the semester. We always incorporate a tour of the campus during one of our lunches, so that the kids have an idea of the size of the campus and beauty they are surrounded by!

Highlights Include

  • Daily instruction from top teaching pro, Bill Scott, and his experienced staff
  • 5-6 hours of daily instruction with low camper to staff ratio and 24 hour supervision
  • Fun off-court evening activities for overnight campers
  • Every camper receives a Nike Tennis Camp T-shirt
  • Experience campus life and create lasting friendships

We'll Be Back

Looking forward for our daughter to return next summer for camp. She had an awesome experience and made some new friendships during the whole week. All the counselors seemed knowledgeable about the sport and were very nice to work with. Our daughter had a fantastic experience and it should help with her tournaments since she is interested in getting a college tennis scholarship at a college when she graduates from high school.
