Overall Average RatingStars
Exciting, fun and positive!
August 9, 2021: The Director and his staff made Tahoe Tennis Camp exciting, fun and positive. Their nurturing energy created a safe community where Charlie could quickly make new friends and he was also motivated to work hard to improve his game.
— Annie B., Parent
August 8, 2021: Simon improved his game quite a bit in the one week camp. If any room for improvement, maybe a little more coaching about sportsmanship and how everyone wins and loses. But that's a minor quibble. Great camp!
— Jeff F., Parent
Overall great experience
August 8, 2021: Our player came back each day energized and positive. She seemed comfortable and confident with the environment at the camp. She got lots of time playing different players and getting to hit some balls mixed in with other smart ways to keep kids active and engaged such as a hiking trip, beach trip, dance activity. The awards ceremony at the end was fun and exciting too
— Alexa L., Parent
What a great week!
August 7, 2021: What a week! Huge thanks to Tony and his staff for a week packed with tennis—drills and match play both—despite every obstacle nature could muster.
— Genny B., Parent
My daughter improved her tennis and learned more about the game!
July 31, 2021: While they did tennis drills and tournaments to improve their game, the camp also organized activities such as tie-dyes and Zumba’s for kids to take a break and have some fun. The coaches were very encouraging yet put a foundation to be kind to one another and the etiquette of tennis playing. I can see my daughter improved her tennis and learning about the game. Toni and his staff made a video and a graduation ceremony to celebrate the kids’ hard work that week and the parents got to see that in the video. My daughter can’t wait to go back again.
— April G., Parent
What could be better!?
July 31, 2021: What could be better? Tennis, lake, mountains, reuniting with friends after two years, and all with warm, friendly counselors and staff.
— Genevieve B., Parent
Had the best time at camp and can't wait to return!
July 25, 2021: Pippa had the best time at camp - she made friends and loves tennis more than ever! She loved the balance of tennis skills training, competition, and other activities like going to the beach and tie-dying. It was her first experience playing matches and it was a positive introduction to competition. She can't wait to return next year!
— Melissa K., Parent
Would have liked a little more skill work
July 24, 2021: Overall good camp. Would’ve liked a little more skill work but realize that is difficult with lots of campers. Appreciate the patience of the staff. Friendly and easy to talk to.
— Christopher W., Parent
Loved match play!
July 17, 2021: James loved the match play! I don’t think he’d ever had a chance to play matches before. He loved it, even though it was challenging.
— Lacey T., Parent
Received Individualized training and feedback
July 17, 2021: The highlight for Emma was the tournaments and the ability to receive individualized training and feedback in the moment, such as with her serve. Being with friends is always a bonus as well!

We'll be back next year!
June 26, 2021: It was amazing for Cody. While his tennis game improved, his level of confidence overall is the gift. It was wonderful for him to engage with the group and hone his social skills after such a trying year. We'll certainly be back next year! Thank you to all!
— Kelly D., Parent

The one-on-one attention was top notch
August 12, 2019: The one-on-one attention he received is just top notch - he was coached on so many aspects of his game and had fun while doing it! He also loves the food, loves almost all of the activities (other than dancing), and appreciates having to push himself to be better.
— Sarah Z. - Parent
She would take this camp everyday of the summer if I let her
July 31, 2019: My daughter came home every day and reported that she would take this camp everyday of the summer if I let her! She absolutely loves the counselors, the Greccos, and all the fun events that they plan for the kids.
— Elizabeth H. - Parent
The greccos do a wonderful job
July 20, 2019: This is my girls’ 5th summer at Granlibakken and we simply can’t say enough good things. The Greccos do such a wonderful job making each camper feel happy and confident, and have a great time. They hire a staff that is upbeat and are such great role models. My girls are all average tennis players, and they improve every year at camp. They also work on sportsmanship, positive attitude and being a team player. We couldn’t be happier!
— Meredith L. - Parent
the Tennis instruction was great
July 13, 2019: The tennis instruction was great and my tennis improved. While still being rigorous, there were fun parts such as karaoke night and 7-11.

Had a great time!!
July 25, 2017: Syaa had a hard time initially with the altitude and some personal issues. She hadn't been to sleepaway camp before. The staff did a great job of communicating with us and keep her engaged and motivated. By the third day Syaa had gotten over her issues and was having a great time playing tennis and making new friends. She definitely wants to come back next year which is a great sign - she was asking to return before we'd even gotten into the car to drive home. Big thanks to the staff for their understanding and support. Syaa had a great time!!
— Aron D. Parent
Wants to come back next year
July 28, 2017: Victoria loved the camp and wants to come back next year. She would even like to do an extended day or possibly overnight
— Dina M. Parent
Loves every single minute of camp
August 8, 2017: She loves every single moment of every last fleeting day in Tahoe each year. Thanks for putting on such a great camp each year. And I'll keep hoping phones and electronics will eventually not be allowed at US Sports camps -- I will forever believe the kids (and their parents) can survive without them!
— Genevieve B. Parent
August 15, 2017: So many positives with this camp! The staff are fun, knowledgeable and friendly. Just the right balance between tennis and fun activities. The location is amazing.
— Tracy W. Parent

— Tyler W. Camper
loved every minute of tennis, off-court activities, and laughs
August 11, 2016: I had the absolute best time at Nike Tahoe Tennis Camp this year. I can't thank Tony Greco and the staff enough for creating the most positive environment possible for improving my game as well as making friends. Every other camper I spoke with after camp loved every minute of tennis, off-court activities, and laughs.
— Lauren C. Camper
July 28, 2016: Thank you to the Greco family for everything!!!!
— Charley S. Camper
coaches were extremely nice, fun, and are great teachers
July 28, 2016: All the coaches were extremely nice, fun, and are great teachers.
— Nicola P. Camper
Davis Cup was so fun
7/27/2016 - I wish there were more courts, but other than that it was wonderful. Davis Cup was so fun!
— Sarah M. Camper
The Grecos do an amazing job year after year
7/12/2016 - JJ enjoyed learning about the different grips (Continental/semi-western/etc.) He also liked working on a spin serve. However, an education on when to use these grips and serves was lost on him. At 10, it's FUN to learn new things, however, further coaching on when/where to use theses grips (spin serve as 2nd serve, not every 1st serve) would have been beneficial. JJ enjoys this camp very much. The Grecos do an amazing job year after year. Thank you!
— John M. Parent
counselors and instructors were great
9/9/2015 - I had a lot of fun. The counselors and instructors were great. I hope I am able to return next year.
— Shelby C. Camper

— Carri O. Parent
We love Nike Camp
8/10/2015 - We love Nike Camp! Staff is excellent and the experience is wonderful.
— Wendy B. Parent
loved being a camper at this amazing camp
8/3/2015 - I loved being a camper at this amazing camp. I loved this camp so much that when I get older there is nothing I would rather do than be a counselor and give the same experience I had to the incoming campers.
— Ben V. Camper
inspired my daughter
8/1/2015 - This camp was so fun for our daughter! She was inspired and, as a family, we hope to all start playing together. We will defiantly be back!

Director Tony does a great job
7/31/2015 - The camp at Tahoe and Director Tony do a great job. My daughter looks forward to attending again next year. She attends a few camps and regularly goes to a tennis academy near our home, but has more fun and enjoys the experience the most here at Tahoe.
— Jack P. Parent
too few kids there my age

— Cassi G. Parent
we will be back next year
7/25/2015 - Great camp!! My only suggestion would be to provide more info to parents while campers away. This can be done by a simple group email or website with pictures from what is happening at camp. Maybe list activities that kids did during the day. My son LOVED this camp & we will be back next year!!
— Karen B. Parent
liked the competition and the variety of activities
7/23/2015 - Natalie had a blast. She especially liked the competition and the variety of activities. She wants to come for 2-3 weeks next year.
— Kathy V. Parent
should not allow screens during camp
7/23/2015 - The fact that kids are allowed to have screens during the day and evening was disruptive and distracting. Very disappointing. Screens should be banned during summer camps. Totally takes away from the experience. It just really does a disservice to the whole mood at camp to have screens allowed.
— Mary L. Parent
