Camp Reviews

Overall Average Rating 5.00 / 5 Stars
    • 5/5.

    July 1, 2022: Coach Orlando taught my son, hand-by-hand on how to improve top spin. Just think about how dreamy it was that a 9-year old tennis lover got advices from the head coach of Michigan State University!!! Totally worth of the investment. My son also got the opportunity to practice and play matches with much older kids. The coaches and campers were super supportive and encouraged him to take the challenges.
