Camp is geared towards adult players of all levels. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the weekend. Once registered at camp, you will report to the tennis courts. Your skill level will be evaluated and you will be assigned to a small group of players with similar skills.

We offer Day and Overnight camp options for adults, ages 18+, of all skill levels. Each day of camp has a morning session (9:00-11:30am) and an afternoon session (1:30-4:00pm). Camp sessions are final, there will be no schedule customization allowed this year.

    Done very well!

    June 27, 2021: Some of the pros were exceptional. The accommodations with the meal plan, the schedule, and the organization was done very well.

    I will definitely be back next year

    June 25, 2021: I thought that this camp experience was really beneficial. I enjoyed all the opportunities for playing with all different types of tennis players. For the most part I like the fact that there were some young coaches who were in high school and really great players. There were other coaches who were in college and also amazing players. There were some very experienced coaches. I liked their different styles and all the different games we played and the opportunities for learning. I will definitely be back next year and I will try to bring more friends.

    Noticeable improvements

    June 15, 2021: Reiny and his team found small (manageable) corrections / tweaks which made noticeable improvements by the end of camp. THANKS! I may still not qualify for any of the tennis majors, but I should have less frustration / more enjoyment when I play with my friends.

    Fun, challenging, and informative

    July 06, 2017: Nike's Amherst camp is the only tennis camp I have ever attended (in 1996 and again this year), but I cannot imagine that any are better run. Reiny and Maureen know their stuff, and they make camp fun, challenging, and informative for everyone.

    I keep coming back for the instructors!

    July 05, 2016: Reiny and Mo and staff have been by far, the most experienced, professional tennis pros I have taken lessons from in many, many years. I have gone to other camps, and keep coming back to Amherst for the instructors.

    — Marjorie B. Camper

    • 5/5.
    excellent instruction

    July 03, 2016: The instruction that Reiny and Maureen provide is excellent. They make it fun and we learn a lot. I have attended for the last 4 years and have made friends from fellow campers. I would be very upset if it was not offered in the future.

    superb camp... been going for 20 years

    June 29, 2016: I love the Amherst tennis camp. Reiny Meir runs a superb camp. I have been going for about 20 years. I have recommended it to many of my tennis playing friends and they love it. Tennis camp represents the summer season for me.

    I love Nike camp at Amherst College

    June 29, 2016: I love Nike camp at Amherst College. It's a beautiful place for tennis camp. The current director and staff are fantastic but I know Reiny is getting up there in years. I'd love to see camp continue at this location, though. Great times!

    Reiny runs a very good camp

    June 29, 2016: Reiny runs a very good camp. I first went there 30 years ago and have returned yearly for the last 10 yrs or so. Not sure I'll return if he doesn't.

    keeps you interested and challenged

    June 29, 2016: One of the few camps that have the instructors, not the campers, move from drill to drill, which streamlines time and gives the campers time to hydrate, apply more sunscreen etc. This director knows all his campers by name (amazing!) and mixes things up to keep your interested, challenged and further hone your individual skillset.

    — Mary M. Camper

    • 5/5.
    would like to attend again next year

    6/17/2016 - I hope you continue to offer the adult tennis camp at this (Amherst College) location. My friends and I would like to attend again next year.

    fantastic job organizing this camp

    7/15/2015 - Reiny Maier & Maureen do a fantastic job of organizing this camp. I make this statement because I have been to Saddlebrook in FL and so I have a reference for comparison.

    — Doug B. Camper

    • 5/5.
    very happy with the whole experience

    7/9/2015 - Was very happy with the whole experience except for not receiving a written evaluation at the end of camp. Others did but neither my husband nor I received one. We had two different instructors. Feedback is critical.

    — Stephie P. Camper

    7/3/2015 - Everything was spectacular - on and off the court - there were no problems, only solutions - can hardly wait to come back again next year - all personnel friendly, upbeat, helpful, professional, attentive, caring

    Great instructors and facilities

    6/25/2015 - I love this camp. This was my second summer and I was looking forward to it all year long. The instructors are great, the facilities at Amherst are great, and Reiny is terrific.

    — Tom D. Camper

    I loved everything about it!

    6/25/2015 - I loved everything about it! Nike at Amherst College is the best!! The instruction, the dorms etc.. everything. I only had 3 days of camp but it was intense three days of drills and play. I was exhausted each day - in a good way. Great exercise and they pushed you to bring out the best. I was not there to play recreational vacation tennis. I wanted to learn and push myself. The only thing I could possibly think of them doing better is probably group people on day one according to their USTA level and make group adjustments as you go through. The first day I played singles against a guy who was really a beginner. He was not having fun hitting against me and vice versa. I had to temper down the shots significantly.

    Best Adult Camp in the U.S.

    6/25/2015 - Great program! Best Adult Camp in the U.S.! I will be back next year. Please extend the duration of the camp. It's too short.

    — Jeff D. Camper

    • 5/5.
    Excellent experience overall!

    6/25/2015 - I look forward to coming to this camp every Spring. It's a win-win: I get to learn new tricks and have a great time too. Excellent experience overall!!!!

    no better camp anywhere on earth

    6/25/2015 - Reiny & Mo run a great camp with great instructors. Most of the campers have been coming back for many years and will continue into the future. I cannot believe there is a better camp anywhere on earth.

    — Bill B. Camper

    • 5/5.
    wanted more variety of drills

    6/25/2015 - In the past, there was more variety of drills which made the time on court more fun and less routine. Also, a few pros did not provide the quality of instruction I expect from the camp.

    — Judy S. Camper

    • 5/5.
    staff is fabulous

    6/25/2015 - I love this camp. I have been coming regularly for 20 years or so. The staff is fabulous. I spend as much time working on my tennis as I do laughing.

    — Diane H. Camper
