Good balance of drills and games
August 20, 2021: My son loved the mix of drills/instruction and match play. He was also excited that the coaches were always willing to hit with him during any down time. The only thing we would change is that the camp was 5 days instead of 4.

Good mix of matches and instructional drills
August 13, 2021: We were grateful Mia had the chance to spend 2 weeks at camp. She was pleased to compete in singles and doubles. The mix of drills and competition is a nice balance. She was so happy to receive ‘Camper of the Week’ award.

My kid had a great time even in the heat
August 13, 2021: The different team games we did were fun and inclusive. Break times were long enough to rest and regain energy. It was very well-organized. Music was great. It would be great to have fans or ice to put in water to keep cool. He had a fantastic time and learned so much, thank you!!
— Jennifer A. - Parent
Organized camp that my daughter enjoyed
August 13, 2021: my daughter likes this camp. it is well organized and very friendly. the main coach is very good on communication and friendly. the only reason I mark 4 star not 5 star is that my kid feels less competition and not getting so much skills improvement , which we all expected before she joined this camp. I wish this camp adds more match plays.
— Mary M. - Parent

Great fun with lots of learning
August 9, 2021: Both of my kids loved the camp. From what I heard it was a good balance of having fun but also improving your skill. Kids loved the camp so we ended up signing up for additional weeks. I would love to see a full week camp, from Monday to Friday instead of Thursday. Also we are curious if there is a year round option, - we would definitely sign up if there was :)
