My friends and I completed a 3-day camp. We had a wonderful experience; The weather was perfect and the Pros (Guillaume and Megan) were very good instructors and lots of fun. I’d love to return again someday soon! Thank you to all the tennis pros at Northstar!!!!Mimi Monahan
Had a wonderful experience here at Northstar Tennis. I had 5 friends from La Quinta, California with me enjoying the clinics in a most beautiful location. Great instruction and coaching from Guillaume and Megan. Lots of good drills with a lighthearted vibe.Kris Adams
Nothing beats playing tennis in the middle of the forest. The coaches are the best. They can bring your tennis to a different level. Not just the skill or technique. It’s the mind and also the fun of it. Camps always give an impression of hard work, long drills, and sweat. This camp brought me a different aspect of playing tennis. It enhanced my thought process on the tennis court. Highly recommended for any age group and play level.William Wong
I have been coming to Northstar Tennis for 11 years now. It’s a beautiful facility, and I have learned so much here. (I’ve been playing tennis for 50 years!). I’ve taken lessons all my life, but there’s something special about the instruction at Northstar. It takes coaching up a notch. Often tennis instructors just pitch balls, and occasionally give you some feedback. The instructors at Northstar study your game and your stroke production carefully, and encourage you how to make positive change. Over the years, I’ve brought about five people to Northstar Tennis, telling them how fantastic it is. I can’t recommend Northstar Tennis enough.Marilyn D.
Guillaume and Megan were fantastic… Did 3 clinics and had a blast.Kathleen O’Regan
