WHAT ARE PARENTS SAYING
…Sandy and Colby, participated in your camp. I simply wanted to let you know how much fun they had. They came home talking about the day, were excited when they thought they had done well, and talked about how they could improve when they thought they fell short.
I have no idea if competitive tennis is in either of their futures, but I wanted to let you know that they truly enjoyed their week with you and your players. We will gladly be recommending your camp to friends and family in the future.

Ellery said the same thing to me today. I cannot thank you enough for the time and energy you all put into this past week. She learned so much! We hope to see you again next year!!!
