Improve your game and have serious fun
at Nike Tennis Camps

Nike Tennis Camp is excited to offer a new camp at Xavier University! This junior tennis camp in Cincinnati is for young athletes to come and vastly improve their tennis game, work hard, make new friends and have a lot of fun.

Our summer camps combine technical tennis instruction and drilling from a top notch coaching staff, supervised match play, and a variety of evening social activities. Our goal is to give players the opportunity to hit thousands of balls, improve their technique, and be challenged by some of the best players in their peer group.

Highlights Include
  • Daily on-court tennis instruction from Cleveland State men’s tennis coach and his expert staff
  • 5-6 hours daily tennis training with a 6:1 student to teacher ratio
  • Fun off-court activities for overnight campers
  • Every camper will receive a Nike Tennis Camp T-Shirt

Please contact Nike Tennis Camps with flight details and transportation information two weeks prior to camp. You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp. Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to provide camper’s flight and shuttle information.
