Such a beautiful campus. The kids got to swim on their lunch break cooling them off between the two tennis sessions. The staff was great. Thanks Adidas Tennis Camps!

The camp with coach Tom was a blast. He was a great teacher and would always take the time to answer any questions we had about our technique. My swing has already improved since the summer time.

I had 2 campers in the extended day camp and in was a fantastic time for both of them. They really appreciated the time and tips that were given to them. I would like to especially thank Tom Drabczyk for care, humor and tennis confidence he gave to my children. Thanks.
