Alabama Tennis Camp
We want you to train with the Crimson Tide! This summer we offer a variety of camps for different tennis player levels and ages. We have seen many players join us for the NIKE overnight camps and now also offer additional opportunities to improve your tennis. The Alabama tennis camps continue to grow each year so please register early to guarantee your spot.
Campers will train at one of the finest tennis complexes in the nation that features 12 lighted outdoor courts at the University of Alabama Tennis Stadium, as well as six indoor courts (next to the outdoor) at the Roberta Alison Baumgardner Tennis Facility. Camp format and theme will be a combination of drilling, match play, instruction and fitness. The NIKE Camps will include daily activities off court such as bowling, movies, pizza parties and games. The Camp is staffed with current Alabama coaching staffs as well as Crimson Tide and other college players. The goal is to provide each camper with a unique opportunity to learn the game regardless of the camper’s skill level.
All camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by age and number of campers.
