Who teaches your camps? Nexgen’s week-long camps are staffed by an elite group of tennis professionals who played NCAA Division I college tennis. Our Razorback alumni inspire children to get active and learn to play tennis. Players of all ages and levels are welcome to our camps and will be placed in small groups based on skill level. Training  will fit the individual needs of each player.

Our coaches and camp counselors are mentors who create an environment that provides a social network while promoting a lifestyle health, fitness and fun! Every Friday we will end our camp with a pizza party with prizes and a free t-shirt to every camper. Class sizes are limited so register early.
