The Alabama camp continues to grow and each year sees record attendance. Please register early to ensure your participation before the registration fills up!
Campers will train at one of the finest tennis complexes in the nation that features 12 lighted outdoor courts, as well as six indoor courts at the Roberta Alison Baumgardner Tennis Facility, which opened in January 2012. In addition, there are 12 newly-surfaced recreation courts directly across the street, ensuring maximum potential for match play and small coach-player ratios. Campers also have access to the varsity track, swimming pools and numerous recreational facilities. Off-court activities include a pizza party, games on the “Quad” and other social events. The Camp is staffed with some of the best coaches and players across the nation offering a unique opportunity to learn the game regardless of the camper’s skill level.
