2014 Camp Information
(Camp Code: TNXRWM)
This year we are offering two weeks of Overnight and Day (8:45am-4:30pm) camp for boys and girls ages 9-18 of all skill levels. Lunch is included for Day Campers.
In addition to the general camp sessions, this year we are offering a tournament training program during the second week of camp. The tournament training program is geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness. Make sure to note that you would like to participate in these programs when you register.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

Weekend Stayovers: Weekend stayovers are not available at this location.
Designated Airport: Newport News Airport, Williamsburg
Nike Tennis Camp does not provide any transportation to/from camp from airport, train stations or bus depots. If you fly into camp, we recommend that you fly into Newport News Airport and schedule a shuttle/bus from the airport to camp.
If you have a camper arriving by air and is deemed an “unaccompanied minor” by the airlines and must be met by a camp staff there may be a fee that needs to be paid in advance of camp. Please contact Director Meredith Walton directly at (757) 561-7873 to arrange this. You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp. Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to provide camper’s flight and shuttle information.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
Located 150 miles south of Washington, DC, The College of William & Mary has a beautiful campus in the historic town of Williamsburg. The Nike Tennis campers use the outstanding athletic facilities. The Millie West Tennis Facility includes eight individual hard court surfaces. Each court features California Corners, a unique design that includes quarter fences that run along the sidelines to allow for uninterrupted play. There is stadium seating for approximately 500 people at the facility, and there is also a state-of-the-art lighting system to accommodate night matches.
