I had so much fun at tennis camp this summer. I made a lot of friends at camp, especially my roommate, who is now one of my best friends. The tennis part of camp was great and I really learned a lot from the coaches.
My daughter was a bit nervous going into camp since it was her first time away from home. The staff did an excellent job making her comfortable because she didn’t want to leave! Not only did she gain the sleep away experience, she made a ton of new friends and her skills improved so much. Well worth it. Thanks to the coaches! I highly recommend the adidas Tennis Camps!
Thoroughly enjoyed the camp at Randolph-Macon College. They have a state of the art brand new tennis facility and an amazing coaching staff to go along with it. Thanks Coach Gray.
The tennis camp held at Randolph-Macon College was awesome. My son really enjoyed it and already stated he wants to return again next year. The instruction by Coach Gray and his players is very good. They provide helpful tips and encourage in a positive way. Holding these camps on a college campus is a great idea because it allows young people to get experience with staying in a dorm and to get a quick look at what student life is like.
The tennis camp was so much fun and I can't wait to go back next year.
