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.

MEET YOUR COACHES
Head Women’s Tennis Coach
UNC – Charlotte
Former Charlotte men’s tennis captain Anthony Davison was introduced as the 49ers’ new head women’s tennis coach by director of athletics Mike Hill in June 2018. Davison became the eighth head coach in program history, dating back to the first season in 1975-76.
Davison returned to his alma mater after a highly-successful two-year stint in charge of the women’s tennis program at LIU Brooklyn in which he guided the Blackbirds to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances, in 2017 and 2018. His efforts in claiming back-to-back league titles were recognized by his peers, as he was voted the Northeast Conference Coach of the Year both seasons.
A renowned developer of talent that turned around a squad that had posted a 1-13 record the season prior to his arrival, all of his Blackbirds recruits have earned honors from the conference. Anna Grigoryan was named the 2017 and 2018 NEC Player of the Year, set a school record for single-season wins, competed in the ITA Masters tournament and advanced to the ITA regional quarterfinals.
His squads won the doubles point in 19-of-21 matches during the 2018 regular season, a 90.5 percentage that tied for first nationally entering the NCAA Tournament.
Off the court, LIU Brooklyn held a perfect 1000 APR score over the last two years and had been selected as an ITA Team Academic Award recipient both seasons. In 2018, the Blackbirds were presented the NEC Team Academic Award for women’s tennis with a cumulative GPA of 3.789 and Malin Leysen was voted the league’s scholar-athlete of the year.
He also was able to negotiate a partnership with a Brooklyn-area indoor facility to cut costs and travel time for his Blackbirds to use for practices and matches.
Head Men’s Tennis Coach
UNC – Charlotte
Jeremy Feldman became the 18th head coach in the Charlotte 49ers men’s tennis program’s history, June 21, 2016. Feldman has been as an assistant coach at Wake Forest for the last two seasons.
Feldman has spent the past two seasons as an assistant coach at nationally-ranked Wake Forest. In 2015, Feldman was named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Carolina Region Assistant Coach of the Year. He played an integral role in helping Wake Forest capture the 2016 ACC Tournament title, which is the first conference championship in the program’s history. He played a major role in helping Wake Forest rank among the Top 10 in the nation in attendance in 2015, by helping institute several marketing strategies. Feldman’s duties at Wake Forest were on court coaching, player conditioning, recruiting, budgeting, scheduling and managing the team’s social media outlets.
Prior to Wake Forest, he spent the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach at the University of Denver. In spring of 2014, Denver climbed to 52nd in the ITA national rankings. He also played a big role in the marketing of the Denver men’s tennis program which led to an increase in fan attendance from the 2013 season.
Before his coaching career, Feldman enjoyed a stellar four-year playing career at Cornell University from 2007-11. In 2008, he was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year after recording an undefeated singles conference record. He earned All-Ivy league doubles honors in each of the last three seasons including a 2010 first-team All-Ivy league doubles selection.
The Armonk, New York native graduated from Cornell in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics. Feldman married Elsa Gillis, who is a reporter for WSOC in Charlotte, Saturday, June 25th, 2016.
