Hi my name is Suzanne and my daughter (…) was signed up to attend the ETSU tennis camp a few weeks ago. She went but however, became ill while she was there and had to come home early. I just wanted to say that each and everyone of the coaches, players and staff were absolutely wonderful. They were all so kind and helpful and Yassar, even called a few days after we arrived home to check up on her. Even though she was so disappointed she got sick and had to leave early, the kindness she was shown really warmed both of her hearts and made her feel better. I just wanted to say thank you for everything and let you know that the organization you have is awesome!
