Utah State University Nike Tennis Camp

We are proud to present the 2014 Nike Tennis Camp at Utah State University. Following our 37-year camp tradition, the theme of the camp is 'Fun.Friends.Improvement.' The summer camp provides each camper with new tennis skills and the inspiration and self confidence to continue improving after camp.

The Utah State Nike Tennis Camp is a youth summer camp for young athletes to come and vastly improve their tennis game, work hard, make new friends and have a lot of fun. Our goal is to give players the opportunity to hit thousands of balls, improve their technique, and be challenged by some of the best players in their peer group. Our junior camps combine technical tennis instruction and drilling from a top notch coaching staff, supervised match play, and a variety of evening social activities. Come elevate your tennis game!

Highlights Include

  • 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

Travel
Nike Tennis Camp does not provide any transportation to/from camp from Salt Lake City Airport, train stations or bus depots.  If you are in need of a shuttle service, we recommend Salt Lake Express. Their phone # is 800-356-9796.  The shuttle fee is approximately $30 one-way.

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 member, there is a $50 fee each way that must be paid in advance of camp.  You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp.  Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to arrange this and to give us the camper’s flight and shuttle information.

Registration Packet
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.

Top priority!

I love the camp at Utah State. My family scheduled a vacation to South Africa, so I wasn't able to attend the second week this year. If I could have, I would have picked tennis camp over the trip to South Africa.
