Many Thanks! I would recommend
7/21/2016 - Jamie and staff - Many thanks for a well-organized adult tennis camp. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this camp. The drills were helpful and useful, and the instructors were very knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. I liked the visual of the serve, forehand and backhand with the instructor's comments and suggestions. I have seen my serve before, but it was helpful to see my forehand and backhand too. I appreciated the enthusiasm in the drills too with easy phrases and visuals. The music was fun, and Jeff added a lot with his bigger than life LOBS at the end of the day! I would recommend your adult tennis camp!
