Here's what others have had to say about NIKE Amherst Adult Tennis Camp.
"This intensive tennis camp with 6 hours a day of instruction is exactly what I look for. The instructors are excellent players and very patient with the campers, the tennis courts are in excellent condition, the accommodations are clean/ modern/ conveniently-located. The food selection offers a lot of variety and is convenient.
The Amherst setting is absolutely beautiful. The Camp's Director provides great guidance and tips, and is a legend!"—D.L., Adv. Int., February 2017
"Of all the tennis instruction I have received, the format of Amherst is the best. The director Reiny maier defines camp and makes it both a learning experience and fun.
All of the staff are well trained, friendly and professional. It is my favorite vacation."—H.S., Int., April 2016
"Excellent adult tennis camp with top-notch instruction. Staff is encouraging and fun as well. Reiny and Mo have been running this camp for many years and many of us return year after year over other camps because of the quality of instruction and experience. I've attended 5 times and brought different people each time. There are closer adult camps to me but I will always go to this one. Amherst is just beautiful and it's fun staying in the dorms too."—P.M., Low Int., April 2015
"Nike Tennis Camp is fabulous! Great instruction and variety as well as fun. It's a highlight every summer!"—S.C., Adv. Int., March 2014
"If you want exceptional tennis instruction, this is the place to go. I go every year to work on my game and find the information imparted during my stay lasts the entire year.
Reiny, Maureen hand-pick the staff and they create an amazing team of instructors. I always come away with new information to take my game to the next level!"—D.A., Adv., March 2014
"I give this camp top rating for people looking to hit a lot of balls who don't mind college dorm accommodations. Five hours of well-paced drills, doubles, and singles play each day (optional additional 1 1/2 hours of social doubles many evenings) I've been going every year for about ten years now. Some instructors are very experienced and some are freshly trained college kids. Instructors are rotated every 20-30 minutes so campers get a good variety. The best thing about the camp is the director, Reiny Maier. His good humor and superb instruction are why I return year after year."—B.S., Int., March 2014
"The Nike Tennis Camp @ Amherst MA is great. The
instructors are extremely competent and friendly.
There are all levels to challenge you. 5 hours of
play during te day plus night matches if interested/
I have attended for the past 6 years and had a
wonderful time each year."—K.B., Adv., April 2013

"Love going here!!! And I just went up a level. I really feel like I have learned/improved one or two things every year I've gone. Lots of tennis (not a 'social' ) , beautiful courts, great pros. GO!!!! If you are a real tennis buff!"—K.C., Int., March 2013
"This is the best tennis instruction I have had. I have been to this camp for more than 10 years and am planning on going again. I organize my friends and we all go together, many coming from other states. I have met wonderful people at this camp.
The food is not gourmet. Since Amherst has multiple kids camps it is more for growing teenagers. The food is ok given the setting."—D.H., Int., March 2013
"I have been attending Amherst Adult Tennis camp for over 20 years. It's tops in my book compared to other camps I've attended. The staff is superb and look forward to seeing them each time I go.
The corporate structure leaves a lot to be desired."—A.W., Adv. Int., March 2013
