What Our Campers Say

The amount of growth I experienced at IMG summer tennis camp is unbelievable. Not only with my skill, but personal growth as well. Responsibility, focus and discipline all become essential. Having the opportunity to interact with "like minds" who love the same sport and are dedicated to improvement is a phenomenal experience. The most rewarding experience was returning back home and showing my coach everything I had improved on during my time at IMG.

Avner W., 2018 Camper

I had an amazing experience at IMG that no tennis camp will ever match. I love the diversity of this camp. It makes you want to wake up early every morning and see yourself constantly improving.

Gleb Ivan H., 2018 Camper

IMG Academy opened my eyes to the international world of tennis. I made friends from around the globe and had fun improving my tennis game!

FAQ

Tennis Camps

  • Why is IMG Academy the best tennis camp option?

    Between our world-renowned coaching, proven methodology, professional-quality facilities and critical mass of players that allows participants to compete and grow, no tennis camp in the world is better at helping you become a better player.

  • How do you assess skill level and how are campers grouped?

    Players are evaluated on the first day then grouped by skill level and age to ensure the best competitive fit for total development.

  • Do players stay in the same group throughout the camp?

    Our tennis coaches make sure players are constantly challenged and growing, therefore they can certainly move to different groups, based on their daily performance and individual goals.

  • Do you follow the USTA regulation for players age 10 and under?

    Yes, during the first morning evaluation, our coaches identify players that still train with green dot balls, and/or train in small courts then get placed accordingly.

  • How do you address the heat during summer?

    On-court training times are usually set up to avoid the warmest times of the day. Players have full access to various Gatorade products for proper hydration, and they also get the proper amount of recovery breaks during training. Our indoor facility is used during periods of rain.
