    Coming back next year!

    July 2, 2021: Paige was nervous about the length of the camp, but each day she came home and was excited for the next day! She was sad when it was over, and plans to return next year! Thanks for such a positive tennis experience!

    Sad camp was ending!

    July 2, 2021: Selma improved her serve and got more experience playing singles. She enjoyed competing as a team. And most importantly, she had so much fun. She was really sad the camp was ending. Bravo!

    All around improvement

    July 2, 2021: The team tournaments were super fun and always playing different people with different strengths and weaknesses made me improve as a player. I loved the constant instruction on strategies and stroke improvement to help me succeed in the match.

    More camp please!

    July 2, 2021: Joshua loves the camp. He wishes this camp went all summer, even though it was longer than his normal daily tennis sessions, it was such a good mix of instruction and fun that he never got tired of it. In fact, each week it ended, he begged me to sign him up for another.

    By far the best tennis camps my kids have been to

    June 28, 2019: This is my son’s final year. He has been to this camp 9 times, truly a highlight of his summer every year. He loves the tennis, but more importantly, all the staff. I was surprised that he even wanted to go this year (summer after his senior year in High School), but he said he wouldn’t miss it. This is something he will always remember and tell his kids about. I will continue to rave about this camp anytime anyone asks, it is by far the best tennis camp my kids have been to. Thank you.

    Professionally run tennis camp that worked on essentials

    July 2, 2019: Our son felt that the camp leaders were encouraging and very helpful. He is a beginner and learned a lot in just a short time. His evaluation included very specific direction that we (parents) can follow as we play tennis with Luke. We have played tennis with him several times since the end of camp - he definitely wants to keep learning and improving. The camp is very well run and the camp leaders very helpful and knowledgeable. This camp was what we were looking for - a professionally run tennis camp that worked on essentials - not a place to park our kid for a week.

    I can't even begin to tell you all the great things my son said

    June 29, 2018: I can't even begin to tell you all the great things my son said. He is 17 so there is not a lot of sharing at this age and he came home excited to tell us about his roommate (the best he has had in the 5 years he has been there), the coaches, the college coaches that were helping him get a feel for college life, the competition, everything. It was great! He comes back with so much passion for the sport even after playing for hours a day that we can't get anywhere else (and we have tried). They work the kids in a way that is inspiring them to do more without making them feel like it is a job or too much work.

    Loved every minute

    July 03, 2018: She loved every minute of her time at camp at the U of M. She enjoyed the drills and the competition between the different teams - including the ping pong, capture the flag, and other non-tennis activities. She loved meeting campers from around the region and got a lot out of her interactions with the coaches. She played a tournament two weeks before camp and then on the weekend after camp and the difference was noticeable. She incorporated some of the skills she worked on in camp and some of the strategies that were discussed. She has played or practiced every day since returning and has worked on the new skills she learned at camp.

    Best camp ever

    May 22, 2018: This is the best camp my daughter Sandra has ever attended!! and she has been in many camps - in Minnesota for the last 2 summers and a lot around Europe, where we moved from in 2015. They are the best on all the levels: the tennis skills our children acquire in a week are impressive; all the coaches are role models, great at interacting with kids but also motivating them, the facilities are top notch!! Sandra can't wait to go again every summer!! Congratulations to Geoff and Dana, who are the beating heart of this camp!!

    Increased confidence and skill

    June 30, 2017: This was my daughter's Second year there. Nike tennis camp continues to be my daughter's favorite summer camp. She reconnects with friends at camp, enjoys meeting new coaches, is challenged by all players - specially since she was one of the younger ones, but most importantly she increases her confidence and skills in tennis. She is planning on returning for another 2 weeks with her friends next year.

    — Margarita C. Parent

    Definitely coming back next year!

    July 01, 2017: It's very fun learning different techniques and meeting new people. We really appreciate the coaches and their enthusiasm for the game. They really connect with the kids and are excellent role models. No suggestions - it's great and we're definitely coming back next year again!

    — Jenni R. Parent

    Will be back next year!

    July 3, 2017: Playing at the baseline tennis center was awesome. My daughter learned the rules of tennis and improved her game, especially serving. The coaches were great and she had a lot of fun with the other kids. She liked the variety of activities throughout the day. Skyball has now become a regular activity after a family game of tennis at our local courts. This has been the best tennis instruction experience my child has had. We'll be back next year!

    July 18, 2017: Owen really enjoyed the connections to the coaches and meeting players from all over the Midwest. He also learned some valuable tips he has used throughout the summer.

    July 3, 2017: My daughter loved the balance of tennis with non-tennis activities. The games and competitions made it a lot of fun.

    highly recommend this camp

    July 6, 2016: This was a very fun camp and I had a lot of fun in all of the activities (on-court and off) and I feel like I improved overall. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone interested in tennis.

    really enjoyed it

    energy from the instructors was great

    6/30/2016 - My daughter really enjoyed camp. Even though they were long days and we had a lengthy drive, she never complained and was always ready to go. She came home tired each day but always happy. She liked how each instructor would focus on a certain skill and how she would get to work in the different types of hits. She enjoyed playing with her fellow teammates. She found that the energy from the instructors was great and very encouraging. The only complaint she had was that she moved to the regular ball too quickly. She didn't know how to control the ball and so was hesitant to take any big swings. She started in orange and moved along to regular ball and green dot ball.

    Should make it a Monday through Friday camp

    6/30/2016 - The one improvement I would recommend is making it a Monday through Friday camp. We are limited to all-day camps, because my wife and I both work during regular business hours. Weekends are family time. So starting on Sunday cuts into family time. Also, we then have to make special arrangements for child care on Friday. Making it a Monday through Friday camp, like all of the other camps we enroll them in, would be a great improvement.

    directors and staff were great

    6/27/2015 - The directors and staff were great on every level. Answer every question and spend the time to explain and accommodate my son. The only problem I had was the level of the kids in the camp, but I do understand that this is an open camp for all levels. My son enjoyed it but the lack of competition didn't help him to improve. Coaches were great on all levels.

    — Nina M. Parent

    • 5/5.
    great experience

    6/27/2015 - Camp was a great experience. My only remark is that my daughter had to play Australian doubles the entire week because there was not an even number if kids. Perhaps the kids could have rotated partners so she could have had a chance to play with a partner and not alone every day.

    — Susan C. Parent

    hope to attend next year

    loved the camp, issues with food

    6/25/2015 - Overall my daughter loved the camp. Her biggest complaint was the food that was provided. Apparently the cook staff did not have enough of the main (hot dishes) available and they had to either "run" to get their food first and if they didn't get there in time, then they had to wait for the cook to make more....this resulted in eating very fast as there is only 30 minutes allocated to meal time. My daughter had to eat the salad bar frequently so she could get a meal in time. Please provide either a better cooking staff, more food or more time to eat in the future.
