My wife and I sent our son to this camp with hopes he would learn the basic fundamentals of tennis. Not only did he learn the fundamentals but he now has such a strong love for the game and is consistently asking me to take him down to our local courts. The experience my son Josh had at camp is one that we will never forget. We already can't wait for camp next year!
I went to camp last summer with a few of my friends and it was the best week of my summer. I learned so many new skills and tactics all while having fun with my friends. I can\'t wait for more kids from my club to come to camp this summer!
My daughter has always been a talented player but lacked confidence in her matches. After her week at this camp, she looked like a whole new player; playing aggressive and confident while truly enjoying her time on the court. I credit this to the instruction she received from adidas Tennis camps; I look forward to seeing what next level of her game she reaches after her experience next year.
