Training to Be Their Best
University of Northwestern tennis camps for boys and girls entering grades 3-12 will help each camper to grow athletically and spiritually. Our coaching staff believes God wants us to do our very best at whatever we attempt (Colossians 3:23), and we are committed to providing quality instruction on and off the court. Coaches work with campers to focus on fundamentals and incorporate spiritual principles and playing expertise to provide a fun and challenging environment. Campers will be grouped to create fair competition as they work on skill development throughout the week.
