ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY
Day camp with Full & Half Day options
The Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camp at Arizona State is the perfect preparation for young players who are looking to get more involved with playing tennis. Each camper receives personal attention, advanced teaching techniques, intensive drill work and game / match play, all in a fun and competitive environment.
During our traditional camp we break the campers into small instructional groups of similar age and ability so each child is working in a group that is commensurate with their experience level. We tailor each program to the level of the players. Beginners would get a heavier dose of swing technique and fundamentals, while more advanced players would have more focus on strategy, point building and percentage tennis etc.
Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camps are the premier camps for young players who strive to learn the game, improve their skills and/or participate in middle school, high school, USTA team tennis or tournaments.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CAMP INCLUDE
- Small instructional groups to ensure individual attention
- Comprehensive instructional program with daily teaching progressions
- Camp T-Shirt and prizes for all campers
- Safety prioritized on and off court
- Camp demo program that includes all the latest Wilson rackets

Our traditional tennis camps (non match-play or college prep) are designed to focus on the fundamentals and swing techniques of the modern tennis strokes. Some of the areas of focus for each level include:
– Beginners: The beginning level player will be introduced to the basics of the game. Emphasis will be placed on stroke production and the technical aspects of the swing in an effort to teach these young players sound fundamentals from the ground up.
– Intermediate: Intermediate level players will also focus on fundamental stroke production (to ensure proper technique), but will also be in put into game play situations to introduce these players to the competitive side of the game.
– Advanced: The more advanced players will work with stroke production in a competitive environment, but will also be introduced to the basic strategies of the game.
– High School / Tournament: Varsity high school and tournament players will focus on the strategic and competitive aspects of the game. Although there will be attention spent on the stroke fundamentals, more emphasis will be placed on point progression, court positioning, patterns and sequences, percentage plays and live ball drill work.

HEAD MEN’S TENNIS COACH
Arizona State University
Arizona State University named three-time American Athletic Conference Coach of the Year Matt Hill as its head coach in the summer of 2016. “I’m incredibly honored and humbled at the opportunity to restart the Sun Devil men’s tennis program. There are many great players that have competed at Arizona State in the past and I think everyone, including myself, is incredibly excited to get this program back where it was and to take it to new heights as well,” Hill said. “I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity and the trust that Ray Anderson, Don Bocchi and Scottie Graham have shown me and I look forward to getting started.”
Hill has spent the previous four seasons as the head coach of the University of South Florida, leading the Bulls to three consecutive AAC team championships and a No. 17 final ranking among Division I programs this past season. USF advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the third straight season in 2016 after qualifying just twice in 10 previous campaigns prior to Hill’s arrival.
The 2016 Bulls reached a program-best ranking of No. 13 in the nation before finishing in the Top 20 at No. 17. Hill coached two-time All-American Roberto Cid to a ranking of No. 2 in the nation, the best ranking of any tennis player, men’s or women’s, in program history. USF also played one of the toughest schedules, notching 16 wins over ranked opponents and play-ing just four matches against unranked foes.
The coaching staff of the Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camp at ASU is one of the strongest and most well respected in the country. Consisting of top collegiate coaches and players, the staff is handpicked for their ability to teach and relate to young players in a friendly, thorough and responsible manner.
Whiteman Tennis Center
The Whiteman Tennis Center serves as the home to Arizona State’s nationally ranked men and women’s tennis teams. The original complex was dedicated May 8, 1976. It featured eight fully lit asphalt-based courts with a seating capacity of 1,200. Jack Whiteman, president of a local machinery company, paid the majority of the $300,000 it cost to build the tennis center. The Sun Devil Club also donated funds for the construction of the facility.
The facility includes men and women’s locker rooms, team areas, coaches’ offices and a training room. The lower level also features several shaded tables, while the second level features a shaded viewing terrace of the entire complex. Additionally, the Robson Player Facility can also be utilized for dinner and university functions.
