    Improved technique and skills at camp

    July 23, 2021: This is Sophia's 4th year attending this camp, she would have gone last year but it was cancelled due to COVID. Sophia has been able to improve her playing technique and tennis game using the skills she has learned from this camp. They give a lot of information on game strategy, different types of game play and they make it fun! She thoroughly enjoys attending this camp with her friends while making new friends.

The feedback they provided at the camp was very valuable.

    July 22, 2019: My son absolutely loved the amount of tennis played and matches, he enjoyed the staff and instructors and had so much fun but worked hard and felt it was such a wonderful experience, he wished we could have sent him to the following week the last scheduled tennis camp of the summer. He will be back next summer for sure! Thank you! We love Coach O!

    Loved everything about the camp

    July 22, 2019: My daughter loved everything about this camp and is already excited to do it again next year. She improved her tennis skills and is ready to show off those new skills to her regular tennis coach. She also loved the cafeteria for lunch and as the Mom I loved not having to pack a lunch. My daughter also enjoyed meeting new children who came from all over the country to attend this camp.

    July 31, 2018: Both my sister and I have been going to the MSU Nike Tennis camp for over 6 years now. I can't say enough nice things about Coach Orlando and Coach Bruno. They run a fun, very busy camp. We love it! We always come back inspired to play tennis. Thanks Coach O and the entire MSU team!

    Days were very well planned

    July 21, 2017: The days were very well planned out where specific skills were worked on each day and plenty of point playing was done. Being able to go swimming 2 nights was a hit with my son and friends as it was so hot outside.

    The camaraderie of this particular camp was exemplary!​

    July 24, 2017: It would be very difficult to choose just one or two items, which our daughter loved most. She really enjoyed the instructors and the element of "fun" used in addition to the instruction. The camaraderie of this particular camp was exemplary!

    Will attend next year

    July 24, 2017: Some of the highlights of Zhanna's experience of the camp were of course the tennis portion. Zhanna Liked how there were different groups and at each different station you worked on different skills for example serving, volleys and overheads, or playing small games. Another highlight for her was going to the arcade, swimming, and the dairy store. All the coachs are nice and they like to get to know the players and all the players are nice and encouraging to each other. Overall, Zhanna enjoyed the camp and will attend next year.

    — Andrea D. Parent

    great experience!

    August 16, 2016: The camp was a great experience and an excellent way to practice the sport of tennis. With 20 beautiful courts, many experienced instructors, and free water and Gatorade to work with, this camp was more than worth it. Getting to experience staying on a college campus and sleeping in dorm rooms was a plus to the camp as well. Overall, it was a blast.

    Check in process could improve

    July 26, 2016: The check in process was difficult for my daughter. She got switched to a different room after she had already set up her room. That was the only negative thing she thought about the camp.

    big thank you!

    7/22/2016 - Dear Mr. Orlando - I didn't have the pleasure of meeting you, but I wanted to say thank you not only for this video clip of my son, Alex, but for the invaluable training he received. I can't emphasize how very happy I am that my son was able to go to this tennis training camp. Alex loves tennis and luckily made the high school tennis team. Now he has more skills as he improves and tries to make varsity for next year. Feeling blessed that my son had this amazing opportunity! - Loli

    felt a tremendous amount of support from this camp

    7/25/2015 - I really enjoy being a part of this camp. the past two summers have been very fun. This year I didn't play very good tennis, so that is the only reason I did not improve as much as I had hoped. However, I continue to come back to this camp because of the staff, especially Coach O. I have felt a tremendous amount of support from this camp and plan on being back next year. Thank You!
