Nike Tennis Camps Set to Return to Lawrenceville School
San Rafael, CA – Nike Tennis Camps, a division of US Sports Camps, is no stranger to New Jersey with the Nike Tennis Camp at the Lawrenceville School entering it’s 43rd year. This renowned east coast camp is offering both day and overnight camps throughout June and July. Directed by Princeton Men’s Tennis Coach, Billy Pate, and Amherst Men’s Tennis Coach, Todd Doebler, this program focuses on leading junior campers to become better players through technical instruction and supervised match play in a fun learning environment.
“We’re excited to host our camps again at such an iconic location,” says Matt Kurlander, vice president for US Sports Camps. “Pate and Doebler do a tremendous job at creating age-appropriate curriculum to help grow players to the best of their ability.”
Billy Pate, entering his 22nd season as a collegiate coach, is beginning his sixth season as the Head coach of Princeton Men’s Tennis. Regarded as one of the most respected and influential leaders in college tennis, Pate, assisted by Damien Hume, has coached the Tigers to 62 dual-match victories which led to a national ITA ranking of 23, highest in the program’s history.
Doebler enters his fourth season as head coach of the Amherst College Men’s Tennis program. Ending with a 21-6 overall record, the Amherst men’s tennis team reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III Championship in 2017. In his second season, Doebler guided the program to the semifinal of the NESCAC Championship with a record of 15-9.
