Created tennis fans!

Prior to tennis camp, my two daughters had little enthusiasm for the sport and had to be bribed to attend tennis camp. After only two days of camp, they talked about how much fun it was and my older daughter asked me to play tennis with her! This camp completely transformed their attitudes and gave them confidence in their athletic ability. Thank you to all the coaches and instructors...I think you just created some lifelong tennis fans!
