        Our camps are open to all levels of tennis players. We have players from absolute beginner to high school / Tournament level.

        We design our camps to teach the technical basics and love of the game to the beginning player, to introduce strategical decision making, and more advanced technique to the intermediate player, while building on their current stroke production, and to put the advanced players into pressured, strategical and competitive situations.

        Groups will be divided into small instructional groups of approximately 5-6: 1 camper to coach. Some camps/sessions offer higher or lower ratios based on the curriculum.

                                    The coaches and the players were very helpful to my child.

                                    Parent of Courtney M.

                                    The camp has been a great experience for my daughter. The coaches are patient, kind and give each player individual attention and always call them by name. John, Brian and Christina did a wonderful job! The other coaches, I’m sorry I don’t know their names, helped make it fun and a great learning experience! This was my daughter’s second year and she will be back next year! Thank you!

                                    My daughter really enjoyed the camp but as she was telling me about everything I realize that y’all do not work with them at all one-on-one to help them improve maybe areas that they are not that good in.

                                    My son felt that this camp was the best he has attended. He felt comfortable and safe in the environment while learning new skills for his tennis game. Thanks for the opportunity for him to participate.

                                    My daughter Victoria loved the camp. New experience on a college campus. She made great friends she wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to meet. And yes getting better at tennis was great as well. Forms were clean, campus was clean.

                                    WAKE FOREST TENNIS CENTER

                                    Built to serve as the home to the Wake Forest men’s and women’s tennis teams along with the ATP’s Winston-Salem Open, the Wake Forest Tennis Center opened in the summer of 2011 as one of the finest facilities in all of college tennis.

                                    The state-of-the-art complex features 13 Deco-Turf II courts, the same court surface that is used at the US Open, affording the Demon Deacons the opportunity to play on some of the nicest courts in the Atlantic Coast Conference, if not the country. It was designed with the intention of hosting the NCAA Championships in mind, making Wake Forest one of only a handful of schools with a facility capable of doing so.

                                    The outdoor facility is conveniently located next to the Wake Forest Indoor Tennis Center, which houses eight indoor courts along with coaches offices, providing a central location for Wake Forest tennis.
