    Helps bring your game up a notch

    July 17, 2021: Martin gives great insights on the video analysis and really helps bring your game up a notch. The variety of rotations always keeps things fresh and interesting. It is really fun getting to hit with the college level players because it is a great workout and makes you appreciate their skill level and what you need to work on.

    Great results from just a weekend of tennis

    August 12, 2019: Very upbeat and positive experience thanks to great staff. You won’t transform your game in one weekend but camp offers a route to make adjustments and improvements to your game. You’ll have a blast while learning from some great players.

    — Don K. - Camper

    Great helpful group of coaches

    August 12, 2019: Loved watching the demonstrations and specifically focusing on improving with these coaches based on their actual ability to execute and articulate how to do so. Super helpful bunch of young coaches/players

    Great ratio of campers to coaches

    August 12, 2019: The pro to player ratio was 1:4. This allowed for a large amount of instruction. The quality of instruction was the most impressive thing about this camp. Their lessons and individual analysis improved my game. I look forward to next year!

    Beautiful place to play some tennis

    August 12, 2019: Great energy and lots of fun tennis. I worked to be grouped with players at a similar level and then also have some time to play with players at different levels. Beautiful setting.

    Analysis and developing my serve was helpful

    August 12, 2019: I love getting to see the tape of my strokes and getting to hear Martin’s analysis. The serve clinic was particularly helpful

    — Michele W. - Camper

    • 5/5.
    Great coaches, demonstrations to die for

    August 12, 2019: Video analysis (humiliating but helpful), every single person so nice and so fun....also the coaching demonstrations were hilarious -- I could've watched those all day! I will definitely return next summer. I wish camp were longer (and I wish there were overnight camps for adults). I would probably have skipped dinner on Friday night and played instead, then just left for the day earlier

    — Alexis S. - Camper

    • 5/5.
    Great staff that provided a great atmosphere to play tennis

    August 12, 2019: Liked the pace of the class, how quickly I was grouped with people of my skill level and the high number of balls I hit in a short period of time. Not since childhood sleep-away camp, have I felt such freedom and joy during a summer adventure. It gave me the freedom to focus solely on building my tennis skills and having fun. The staff ensured that all my needs were looked after, and I was surrounded by encouragement. The coaches and fellow campers kept the energy level and learning dialed to the max! Can't wait to do it again next summer!

    — Amie C. - Camper

    Coaches were excellent, encouraging, and friendly

    August 08, 2018: This was a well-run camp. All the coaches were excellent, encouraging, and friendly. I definitely recommend it and would have stayed another day to play more!

    — Joyce W. - Camper

    • 5/5.
    Definitely hoping to return next year

    August 23, 2018: I really liked how the time was structured, with a little bit of demo time, where we got to watch the coaches play and demonstrate certain skills, and then we would get to practice specific skills. I loved the rotation, where we got to practice and get coached in all different aspects of the game. The videotaping was very helpful. Would have been great to have a little bit more time for that rotation, as it was hard to make it through all 4 people. However, even though I was the last one and only got the chance for quick feedback, it was very helpful to take in all of the tips given to the others. And the advice I got was a slight grip change that has been very helpful to continue playing around with. I thought Martin was an excellent director -- I loved his very positive, active and encouraging approach. I felt he was very respectful of everyone, from the other coaches to the campers, and very knowledgeable. I'm definitely hoping to return next year!

    — Tracy D. - Camper

    By far the best weekend tennis camp

    July 23, 2018: I had the privilege of attending the Nike Temp Camp at Pepperdine University last weekend. This is my third Nike weekend tennis camp and by far the best. It was located at Malibu, California. Needless to say, the scenery was breath taking. Not only is it one of prettiest places in the country, but the head coach Martin Parkes was absolutely amazing. The minute I arrived was treat with the utmost respect by he and his whole staff. I learned more from them in three days than four years of private lessons. They were professional and able to teach me some helpful techniques to help me play better. I believe that there were 36 or 37 in our group and everyone had very high praise for Martin and the staff. THEY WERE A 10!!!!!! I am planning on returning next year with a few of my tennis friends to this camp. It was the best. Best Jeff

    Will come back!

    July 31, 2017: I had a really good time at camp and will come back! I especially appreciated the feedback on the video and I liked beginning each day watching the staff demonstrate strokes and strategy.

    This camp was awesome

    July 31, 2017: This camp was awesome. I wished that I had attended camps like this sooner. I learned a lot, made new friends, and it was a lot of fun. I will definitely be attending this camps in the future.I really like your coaches. They are so enthusiastic and seemed genuinely enjoy working with us camper. I would encourage them to be more vocal in providing feedback. We are there to learn and appreciate any feedback they can give. Don't worry about being polite because we are older, or because we are paying guests. We are here to learn.For me the eurika moment is the video analysis. I had no idea that I was doing it all wrong! It was a humbling moment. It would be awesome, if we could have gotten video analysis on all aspects of our game. But then again, this was a weekend camp, and I understand we have limited time.

    — Thomas C. Camper

    It was outstanding

    August 01, 2017: I took both weekends. It was outstanding. Incredibly well organized. Martin ran the schedule with military precision to maximize playing/learning time. All the coaches were top notch.

    more live ball like the first night of camp.

    August 24, 2016: I would have liked more live ball, like the first night of camp.

    • 5/5.
    Loved the camp. Will be back

    July 29, 2016: I thought the Director Scott was excellent. He was very focused on making camp a great experience and you could tell he was very motivated. I felt the experienced coaches like did a great job, gave feedback and kept the energy level high. One piece of feedback, many of the women commented that they would not wear the men's cut t-shirt given at the end of camp. It would be better if you gave us Nike branded towels at the beginning of camp. Loved the camp. Will be back.
