Passion for sharing their tennis skill
July 11, 2017: I attended three day adult camp on the first week of July, just because it was the only available adult camp for my area. I definitely would like to attend your camp for more days soon; I have witnessed the quality of your tennis camp, especially Ross and his team's passion for sharing their tennis skill last weekend. Thank you very much

Coach Ross was amazing!!!
July 12, 2017: My wife and I had fun at the camp and each learned some new tips to improve our game. Coach Ross was amazing!!! He was able to observe each camper, diagnose their weakness, and implement tips and drills to improve our games. He is a definite keeper! His enthusiasm and high energy throughout the camp was contagious! The various drills and team competitions were fun. The other coaches were not very good. Steven is a great player, was friendly and helpful, but too quiet and didn't provide enough coaching when we were on his court. Maddie should not be coaching adults. She seemed disinterested, unenthusiastic and didn't provide any coaching - low energy level. When she did try to run drills, her voice was too soft to hear her. She was also not effective at feeding balls in the drills. However she also was a very good player.

Ross was fantastic
July 17, 2015: Ross, the lead instructor, was fantastic and his instruction was very specific and tailored to meet my needs. Each time I was on his court, I felt like my game improved and I left with little things that I continue to use.

Ross was outstanding
July 16, 2015: Ross was outstanding... He obviously knows a lot, but can focus on key fundamentals and communicate at the level of the player which is a gift. I really enjoyed working with him.
