Nike Adult Tennis Camp
PEBBLE BEACH, CALIFORNIA
“Ahhhhh. … summer camp! Remember? For 4 days, you get to be a kid at camp. Let me just get this out of the way: I plan to go back annually. I’ve played tennis since I was 10 years old; have gone from good to great to ok to what the h---? And now back to really good again. Just takes consistency and dipping into gorgeous Pebble Beach 1 x per year and focusing on my tennis game is a gift I’m giving to myself. Pros are excellent, the surroundings are gorgeous, there are four campers per court/ per pro and plenty of play-time, outside of drills. It’s also great value: $700 for four days, 8 hours each day and four of observed play the final day. Hard to beat and makes for a great gift for a tennis playing family member.”

Getting your game back and ramping up your metabolism!
Solo, a friend or partner (We went as two gals, but one could go solo easily as there are so many nice people, mostly 40’s and 50’s)
A fabulous steak salad at ‘The Bench’ for lunch (lower ground level of the Pebble Beach Hotel & Resort) in the sun, overlooking the 18th hole. Followed by some of the best doubles play I remember in years. (Red meat, hmmm!)
Best time to go
This program, run by excellent pro: Kie Foreman is in April annually. Check the website for other locations/dates. (There is an August camp in Malibu for example...)
Camp finishes at 4pm the two middle days – leaves time to stroll Carmel-by-the-sea and have wine in-hand in time for a 7pm ish sunset at Hotel Playa or Carmel Highlands by Hyatt.
$700 includes all pro/play and lunch the first day + dinner the second day (if you choose to stay with the group).
