Improved my game
August 09, 2017: Smaller camp size this year made a big difference. I brought back several very specific corrections to each facet of my game. I waited to see how I would be able to apply the coaching feedback at my home club and I think it is already improving my game. I hope I can go next year and I hope the numbers are small!

camp was truly inspiring
August 26, 2016: The staff and other campers were very friendly and encouraging. This camp experience was truly inspiring. I had a great time, will continue to practice and play. I plan on attending a camp in the future and I will recommend the camp to my friends.

loved the coaching, feedback, and encouragement
August 18, 2016: I wish there were more opportunities for singles matches. I understand why that's difficult, though, due to court space. I loved the coaching, feedback, and encouragement from all the coaches! Everyone was super helpful and nice. It was fun to work and play with all of them. I also really appreciated the adherence to the schedule each day. The drills and events were well-organized and started on time. I loved how efficiently the whole weekend was planned and run!

camp was extremely well organized
7/29/2015 - I thought the camp was extremely well organized and free flowing; the coaches were more than tennis-talented, they were personable which made the experience enjoyable. I'm talking about this camp to my tennis buds hoping to increase attendance from Corvallis in 2016. Congratulations on a job well done!

Love the dinner the first night
7/29/2015 - Love the dinner the first night. It was a good way to meet and get to know other campers. Need to offer this program in WA!

very grateful and highly inspired!
7/29/2015 - Ross and the coaching team were outstanding! There were so many great takeaways and I still craved more. Even when I felt as though my particular group did not have the same intensity as I did, which I shared that concern with Ricky. Ross and staff went into immediate action and accommodated my intensity by placing me in a situation where I felt that I was able to utilize my newly learned skills with higher level opponents/participants. The timeliness of their response and the way they accomplished this was truly a class act and a declaration of their amazing attention to detail of our experience! I'm very grateful and highly inspired to advance my tennis journey. I'm a full supporter/advocate of any clinic/camp that Ross is involved in. I'm also very interested in promoting/helping Nike to expand/create an adult camp in the Seattle area…assuming Ross Duncan is the director. Ricky, Steven, Alex and Ross’ passion for tennis exuded in their individual coaching style, which those unique intricacies created a harmonious collaboration that I felt yielded personal accomplishment and a rejuvenated enthusiasm of my excitement of tennis!

Coaching staff was excellent!
7/29/2015 - Coaching staff (Ross, Alex, Steven, Ricky) was excellent! Appreciate their hard work, passion for teaching and constructive feedback. They were committed to us improving our skills and creating a fun and supportive environment. Can't wait to return next year! Would also love a camp in the Seattle area.
