Doubles Boot Camp 2015

  We Want You...For Doubles Boot Camp!   Believe it or not, the idea for Doubles Boot Camp sort of came on a whim.  Senior Director, Scott Colebourne and I were just sitting around one day discussing tennis and coaching strategies. We spent some time going over the evolution of Roger Federer's hair and we talked about how technique takes a very long time to master. What most players need to win is better strategy and tactics. We both agreed that changing your tactical approach or game plan is much easier to accomplish than say, developing a better forehand or a stronger serve. Since most adult players frequently play doubles, we felt that a camp specifically catered to doubles tactics and strategy would be just what our tennis program needed. With many camps (ours included) people come to learn better techniques and improve their weaknesses, but we wanted to change it up a bit and offer a camp that taught players ways to win using their existing game. Ultimately, the goal of the camp would be to get players to ask “when” to hit that forehand instead of “how” to hit it, which in our minds is much more important.
