Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Professional, personable and knowledgeable
August 02, 2018: Overall the staff was professional, personable and knowledgeable. Throughout the weekend they provided great feedback on core skills and offered a lot of tennis strategy. Also the Midland tennis center is a great facility with excellent courts both indoor and outdoor that was able to handle the inclement weather.

Liked the coaches moving between groups
August 02, 2018: I liked the coaches moving between groups because it allowed each one to pick up on different nuances of a player's ability. I would've like one whole 30 minute session devoted to improving serves. Explanations to improve strategy were very good and gave me a lot to consider.
— Judy C. - Camper
August 04, 2018: Great experience as a third year camper. Every year is nice change from the last as they work on different skill sets
— Lisa B. - Camper
Learned a lot!!
August 21, 2017: Thanks to all staff for being so friendly and enthusiastic. It helped create a great atmosphere. Special thanks to Keith for being one of the best "explainers" I've encountered among tennis pros. I learned a lot from him!!
— Julie W. Camper
Had a great time
August 21, 2017: Feedback - Had a great time. Just a suggestion would be to spend more time truly evaluating skill level prior to placing groups. Seemed like I was put into a group before I arrived although a majority of the group were very beginners. Not saying I am the best player but I was frustrated playing with others that could not hit the ball. I approached the camp director half way through the camp and requested to change groups which he did right away with no issues (thank you!).
— Gary A. Camper
August 21, 2017: Scott Mitchell is such an excellent director and teacher! And his staff were very knowledgeable and fun. The drills were at a higher level than last year, which I really appreciated. The groupings by ability made it more enjoyable. Liked that it was run on the posted time schedule. The first night reception helped us get to know our teammates! Great job, Midland Tennis and Scott!
— Sue G. Camper
Didn't want the weekend to end
August 22, 2017: I traveled for 5 hours to go to the camp in Midland and my only complaint is that Sunday should be a longer day at camp. I was having such a good time and was learning so much that I didn't want the weekend to end.
— Laura D. Camper
Plenty of fun
August 24, 2017: Great job with the camp! There was a good energy and plenty of fun. Everyone was kind and overall respectful. I also think it would be interesting to have a small doubles tournament (not full best of 3 sets) or more live match play with similarly skilled players.
— Hassen B. Camper
August 26, 2017: Great camp!!!
— Vicki B. Camper
Great, positive, knowledgeable staff
August 8, 2016: Great, positive, knowledgeable staff and wonderful venue. Definitely enjoyed the camp, even though I had to leave early. Definitely would love to return, even for something similar in the winter months!
— Tim J. Camper
The pros were fantastic
August 5, 2016: I learned a great deal about doubles positioning. There were also a lot of great drills that focused on good form. The pros were fantastic. I can't wait to play tennis at Midland again!
— Wendy R. Camper
August 5, 2016: I would love tennis camp in warmer places, even earlier in the year and use it a great long weekend. Instructors need to continue to give critical feedback on play. There were a few times I heard "great job ladies" over and over when I needed someone to help break down how I could improve. Also, the segregation on the men and women for most of the weekend could be changed up so both can play against the different paces. Overall great experience and will highly recommend!
— Lisa B. Camper
August 04, 2016: Fun. Friendly. Exhausting at times. Covered too much ground, leaving insufficient time for professional feedback and personal counseling.
— Arthur S. Camper
August 04, 2016: Had a great experience and hope to attend again next year.
— Andrew M. Camper
Great! Fun! Enthusiastic pros
August 04, 2016: Great! Fun! Enthusiastic pros really made the camp experience memorable.
— Brenda B. Camper
Pros were very positive and committed
August 03, 2016: Pros were very positive and were committed to teaching the campers. Some of us who came with groups have played with each other a lot and would have liked to play with others more. The camp provided for an overall enjoyable weekend. Suggestion: In addition to drill games, add options for campers to learn more specific skills in-depth... for example top spin. One additional comment: I was having knee problems on Saturday and was very gratified that the pros were able to modify their feeds for me.
— Marcia M. Camper
Director did a great job
8/3/2016 - Director did a great job mixing up groups, explaining drills. All pros were friendly, encouraging and helpful. Location was GREAT! There was higher player to pro ratio than I expected from what I had read, but it ultimately made no difference as things moved smoothly . I am definitely returning if dates work for me in 2017!!
— Mary Lou T. Camper
Perfect mix of serious instruction and laughter
8/3/2016 - Scott Mitchell and his staff were outstanding. Perfect mix of serious instruction and laughter.
— Gary Y. Camper
The pros were superior in their coaching and enthusiasm
8/3/2016 - Disappointed the t-shirts were not provided in adult sizes we ordered. The pros did a great job of assessing plates levels, but perhaps USTA ranks could be given prior. I enjoyed playing others from all over the Midwest. The pros were superior in their coaching, enthusiasm, and the perfect amount of toughness was given. I wish my club pros and director were as personable and so up to date in the latest tennis strategies and strategies. They made such an effort to learn our names.
