    Really enjoyed camp!

    July 1, 2021: Justin played one season prior to camp so was relatively new to tennis. He was a bit apprehensive about how long the camp was but he came home saying "somehow they made it fun the whole time!" He really enjoyed it and I recently received a message from the director of his youth tennis league about how much he improved from the camp. Thank you!

    Time of his life at camp!

    June 30, 2021: Luke had the time of his life to be honest with you. He is not an emotional kid and on the eve of the last day he told me he was sad that it was coming to an end. He had fun. He learned. He competed. He made new friends, one of which they exchanged numbers. Luke's team came in second and the week's real highlight is Luke was awarded Sportsmanship Camper of the Week. As a parent, that meant so much.

    Thank you!

    June 26, 2021: Alexa enjoyed being able to have matches and competing. She doesn’t have an opportunity to play with similarly skilled people and this is her favorite sport. I think she was sad when she realized some of her new friends were not local. Thank you!

    Great practice for college life and beyond

    July 1, 2019: Our daughter loves to play tennis and loves to hang out with her friends and this was the best of both. The staff were very encouraging and she was beaming with how much her serve improved over the course of the week. I like that they are responsible for waking up on time, getting to meals and down to the courts on time, etc. They are only 11 years old but this was great practice for college life and beyond. She has three camps this summer and two family vacations but the Nike Tennis Camp was the one she was the MOST excited about! We'll be back next year, thank you!

    Good instruction made camp FUN

    July 06, 2017: Austin really enjoyed the grand-slam match play. He also liked having his own room. (We think the residence halls are great! We also think he met some nice kids.) Our son says "a couple of counselors did not seem into it (teaching tennis) or paid attention to us at all." He really liked Ryan, Kelsey, John, Michael, and Steven--"they were nice, gave good instruction, and made the camp FUN.

    need air-conditioned rooms
