Denver Area 2022 Tennis Summer Camp at Colorado State University

Colorado State University

Fort Collins, CO 80523


Overview

Colorado State University features 12 outdoor lighted tennis courts with a 25 foot viewing area making this one of the top tennis camps in Colorado. Located in the beautiful resort town of Fort Collins, this adidas Tennis Camp is sure to sell out!

Camp is open to all ages and ability levels. We assess each camper's ability during the first session of camp and make sure they are grouped according to their age and abilities so this way we can tailor the drills, games, and match-play to fit their individual needs.

Sunday and Monday is spent evaluating skill level, learning names, and kids are placed in appropriate groups to guarantee that everyone is challenged.  Level based play and having similar skilled kids hitting together is critical.  Objective skill level placement is far better than an age and gender split, although the 10 and unders' are always separated on mini nets with junior frames and soft balls (unless 1-2 of them are far more advanced and can join the yellow ball group)

Covid-19 Policy: Vaccine is not required. We ask they everyone brings in the health form filled out (does not need to be signed by a doctor), covid-19 policy waiver, and the health monitoring form with you to check in (if you haven't uploaded any of them to your online account).

The staff was extremely helpful in focusing on things we wanted to work on. They were willing to stay during the off hour before dinner to help me one on one with developing a kick serve. Highly recommend this camp.

Coach Steve did a great job working with my kids this summer. By the end of camp, I could really see a difference in their tennis game.
