    The Brady Tennis Camp exceeded my expectations! Outstanding instruction from the entire Brady Team on every level. It was fun, informative and I came home with some new skills. I can’t wait to return next year. I couldn’t ask for a better camp experience. July 23’ Michèle Ramsey

    Brady runs a good camp. To ensure you get some levels of instruction you need to ask each of the different coaches for feedback during their session ,upfront.

  • Avatar MI

    Instructors provide group and individual instructions to elevate your game by improving your fundemental stroke patterns. Games reinforce these improvements. Pick a court allows you to focus on areas you want to improve. This was about my 18th time to attend this camp. I always pick up tips as I also have improved. I also like the strategy lessons to help you win more games too. High energy and focused sessions will improve your game, while having fun too. The other instructors always bring a different lesson and drills for a more rounded lesson between instructors and students. I plan on going again next year too.

    Tennis staff and program are excellent. I am a repeat customer. You should find your own lodging if you’re not accustomed to student dorm option. The UCSB dorm environment can be shocking.

  • Avatar LH

    We had a wonderful experience at camp, we traveled from Phoenix with 8 woman from our tennis team. We learned alot and got to play in beautiful weather with great coaches. We will definately be back!!

  • Avatar KW

    Great camp. Lots of good takeaways. Loved the instructors. Kip was awesome as were Allan and Kevin. I remember every tip Virgil gave me. He was right to the point. Drills were so helpful and detailed. We liked the variety of clinics, plus the coaches worked with us one-on-one on our weaknesses. Pick a court (choose a court based on your needs) was excellent. We really got individual attention in these sessions. Kip was especially attentive. I would have liked more time with these and the morning sessions. The doubles play and tournaments didn’t interest me. I was there to refine my skills. I’d highly recommend this camp. We will be back – again and again.

    I loved Brady Tennis Camp! Lots of skill levels and spot-on instruction. Great vibes and lovely people. I will definitely go to another Brady Camp.

  • Avatar DJ

    the brady camp is my favorite weekend tennis experience. I look forward to attending just about every year.

  • Avatar JM

    Brady camps are run by the Brady family. They all make an effort to get to know campers by name and make them feel welcome. The coaching staff is mostly Brady family members with a few others in the mix. The level of coaching is outstanding and they are all very personable and fun to be around. I would guess the skill levels of the campers ranged from 3.0 to 4.5. Of course any camp has its problems. At the July Santa Barbara camp, the tennis courts were locked one day until one of the coaches scaled a fence and opened the gate for us. It was only a minor inconvenience. The clinics are quite physically demanding without much downtime. Some people may have trouble keeping up.

    What a great camp coinciding with the Indian Wells tournament. Great to learn new skills and hang out together to watch matches in the afternoon!

  • Avatar PK

    Great tennis camp! 3 solid hours of drills and game play, with good feedback from the coaches on strokes and strategy. The groups were full of good players, many with league/tournament experience. I look forward to going again! Highly recommended!

  • Avatar HH

    This was my first tennis camp. I learned so much and had fun while doing it.

  • Avatar MM

    This was the best tennis camp I’ve ever attended. Kevin and Kip Brady are the best and very friendly. The camp started every day on time with a few stretches, then coaches playing to point out doubles strategies, then they grouped us. Every hour we rotated to a different court and worked on different aspects of the game: volleys, overheads, ground strokes, serves, and then some point play. Many of the tips and pointers I had never heard before. The group rate at our resort was fantastic and we enjoyed that time as well. It was a very short drive to the camp courts and the Indian Wells Tournament. One of the favorites to win the tournament was staying at our hotel-so that was fun to see her. All in all it was the best camp, resort vacation, and tournament combo I’ve experienced. Thank you Bradys! (FYI-I attended March 2023 but the survey button below doesn’t give me that option.)

    Highly enjoyed the clinic. Exceptional Instructional in a competitive environment.

  • Avatar AS

    Liked the stations with different skills being focused on. Games at the end of camp first day weren’t that fun – would have preferred to continue skills. Also both days sort of slow start by campers warming up themselves for 15 minutes and then “stretching” together after that. Would prefer to get into instructional time faster. Also awards during last 15 mins of camp each day seemed like not a very good use of time – sort of silly. Day two less good skills stations. Also one young instructor seemed confused by being told to run a drill that required six campers while our group had five campers. Instead of improvising seamlessly she seemed confused which led to the women in our group trying to take charge just so we didn’t all stand around waiting for the instructor to figure out what to do. Suggest that young instructors need to be more prepared to take charge and stay in control. Visited in 2023.

    This was the 3rd Brady Camp I’ve attended! Great instructors very organized! Can’t wait for the next one!

  • Avatar DL

    My family and I have been participating in Brady Tennis Camps since 2008. We absolutely love the Brady family, they are not only amazing tennis instructors, but great people with high values. Before attending Brady tennis camps, we were sporadic with our tennis. After we started attending and working with the Bradys on our form and endurance, we became super energized to get better and better. Now we set goals and only practice what we learn at the camps. Our tennis has improved tremendously, we even made it to the USTA sectionals for mixed doubles! Now, we only attend Brady tennis camps, we don’t waste our money on any other instruction. We can’t wait for the camp at La Costa this October, that one is THE BEST!

  • Avatar JA

    The Brady Tennis Camp was just excellent; wonderful instructors, great people and I learned a ton. First time attending one but definitely not the last time! Would highly recommend for anyone who loves tennis.

  • Avatar BH

    This was my second Brady Tennis Camp, and it was awesome! I had a blast and learned a ton from the instructors. They kept things moving quite well with the schedule, and we were able to play a lot of competitive tennis. I was tired, but I really enjoyed every minute of it. Will be returning again in the next year, and recommending it to my tennis friends.

  • Avatar GB

    The Brady tennis camp provided a great combination of instruction from very skilled instructors, along with a fun social atmosphere. There are players of all levels that signed up for the camp. I spent a good amount of time with others at my skill level doing a variety of drills and short competitions. At other times the entire group of attendees would get together for additional games. This kept things fun while I had a chance to work on many aspects of my game. I think the main strengths of the weekend camp I attended are: – good drills targeting different aspects/shots of the game – skilled and friendly instructors – good social atmosphere – nice location/courts The only suggestion for improvement I have is that I would like it if they split the groups per skill level a little longer and get into some more competitive based drills within these specific groups. The more social, all group games at the end are still very fun though and should not be eliminated from the schedule. I highly recommend the Brady Tennis weekend camp that I attended!

  • Avatar DE

    First time to Brady Camp and it was great. Pros were friendly and very knowledgeable. I hope to do it again and bring additional friends.

  • Avatar LA

    I have told my friends that this camp is very grueling and a go-hard work out, and lots of fun if you are in shape. The food is not fantastic but you’re so hungry after the workouts that you gobble it up. You can be roomed with a stranger, so if you are shy it would not work for you. I am not shy and it was great to have a roommate to become friends with. The instructors are awesome, the Brady family. Some of their up-and-coming younger assistants need more experience but they will become awesome in the future With the Bradys guiding them.

  • Avatar SN

    Brady Tennis Camps are so much fun. You get high quality instruction for not a lot of money compared to other camps I’ve researched. The social atmosphere is great too. If you travel by yourself it is easy to make some new friends and have people to hang out with during the week/weekend. The camp venue that I went to (UCSB) is also wonderful. It is a beautiful location with great weather and you really feel like you are having a great tennis vacation. I can’t recommend this camp highly enough.

  • Avatar RJ

    All those attending were quite friendly and helpful. It didn’t matter where you ended up each day. Almost all the staff, including coaches, were knowledgeable and adapted their instruction to a person’s skills or lack thereof. A most enjoyable atmosphere!

  • Avatar NR

    Excellent camp! Great instructors! Dedicated instructors who provided wonderful feedback and tips. Instruction given during drills and during match play to help you improve.

  • Avatar AV

    I attended the Adult Tennis Camp run by the Brady family. Instruction was okay for a fairly large group and individual feedback was limited. I might have enjoyed the camp more if it were not for the lodging at the Tropicana Gardens. You get what you pay for and it was your typical dorm setting. There was a concurrent kids tennis camp being run and they unfortunately were staying at the same lodging. As far as I can tell, there was absolutely no supervision of these kid of various ages as they ran and screamed from approximately 5pm till “quite time” which was around 10pm. It was truly an awful experience. After spending an entire day on the courts, you couldn’t even relax due to the excessive screaming. All the children seems to be housed on the second floor with the adult campers on the ground floor. It was a nightmare. So much so, I would never attend this camp again nor as a parent would I feel comfortable sending a kid to stay at this camp.

  • Avatar MS

    Excellent camp experience! A friend and I participated in the camp, we are men’s 4 to 4.5 level players and we had a wonderful experience. Kip and Kevin do a great job, they make it fun and everybody learns something new. You’ll get a good aerobic workout with many of the drills, you get a chance to hit some tennis balls prior to going to the BNP tournament.

  • Avatar GL

    I attended the Brady Camp during the Indian Wells BNP tournament. The tennis camp runs from 8 am to 11am, and is fantastic! Great instruction and flexibility as well. When camp concludes, its off to watch the best tennis players in the world. What a great combination!

  • Avatar JP

    Beautiful resort with a great tennis facility. The Brady family runs an extremely fun, challenging and organized weekend with opportunity for tennis players of all levels to improve, be challenged and have fun. We had an absolute blast!

  • Avatar JP

    This was our first Brady Tennis Camp, and it won’t be our last. Judging from the number of repeat campers, we knew right away that this must be a good camp. We were right about that. The first morning began with skill fundamental sessions, targeted at each level of player, and progressed through match-play scenarios and fun tennis games over the weekend. We left the camp dog-tired but feeling like we were better players with the info we needed to keep moving ahead.

  • Avatar AB

    Brady Tennis Camp is extraordinary! My teammates and I not only had the best time making memories on the court, but we learned tennis strategies and skills. We made new friends, and enjoyed touring beautiful Santa Barbara. It was a delightful week of pure fun. The Brady family is not only professional, but customer service is their speciality. As well, they made sure all campers had a great time and everyone of all skill levels had a variety of experiences on the court. With out a doubt, anyone who loves tennis should attend this camp. By far, it is the best tennis camp and I would recommend it to anyone over Nike adult camp in a heart beat. I have been more than once to this camp and highly recommend the hotel over the dorms. The price of the camp which inculudes this lodgingis an incredible deal and very nice. Best expericence of tennis camp I have ever had and all thanks to the Bradys.

  • Avatar VA

    If you want great value for your investment Brady Tennis Camp is it! Run by the Brady family the camp at University of California in Santa Barbara was well organized everyday – lots of instruction,drills and match play. It was different from other camps as it was not at a resort. I stayed at a near by hotel Pacifica Suites – in Goleta which was just 5 minutes away. It was a great week of eat, sleep, tennis and met some great people. I will retutn with some of our team members!

  • Avatar KC

    My first year attending and had a great time. Great instruction in the morning and then fun match play after lunch. I learned so much and had the opportunity to put my new skills to work in the afternoon. Lots of individual attention even with a group setting. I will definitely attend again. My daughter and husband have attended three years now and love it as well. Great family experience by a great family! Love that my junior can attend camp at the same time!

    Friendly staff. Great accommodation. Informative sessions. Fun community.

  • Avatar DM

    This is my third year attending the Brady tennis camp in Santa Barbara, which is always an enjoyable experience. This year I brought my two children for the first time, who loved the junior tennis camp. The Bradys are a wonderful family and three Brady generations, along with a number of other excellent coaches, are involved in putting together a spectacular program. Most importantly, the people that attend are lovely, and encompass beginner, intermediate and expert players.

  • Avatar CW

    This 5-day camp exceeded expectations! The instruction was excellent and we covered everything from strategy to serves, including ground strokes, cross shots, drop shots, volleys, lobs, slices, returns, footwork, etc. This is the rare camp where you walk away with markedly improved skills and technique. My serve got SO much better and I am so pleased! The instructors were fabulous and great at answering our questions. We’ve been to other good camps and clinics across the US but this one is a standout. We are definitely going back for more and highly recommend the Brady Tennis Camps.

  • Avatar PC

    The tennis instructors were knowledgeable and friendly. Each court is set up for particular strokes. It includes both practical and technical aspects. For the casual and more serious player, there was a platform for both levels to improve . The camp focused primarily on doubles which was appropriate for the age level. I would hope they would nonetheless offer more singles play and strategy. It was a great and rewarding experience all around.

  • Avatar MT

    I love attending this camp. I do it every time that I attend the BNP Paribas Open. There is morning tennis Saturday and Sunday, as well as dinner with evening doubles. It fits in very well with the tournament. You can attend Thursday and Friday, but I haven’t done it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to both play tennis and watch the pros . Very good value.

  • Avatar MK

    The Brady Bunch puts on an excellent camp for those looking to improve their tennis game, plan on an action packed weekend. Everything from ground strokes, overheads, volleying and serves are emphasized. Met a great group of people from all over.

  • Avatar MM

    Brady Tennis Camp is a fantastic experience for a tennis lover. The instructors are skilled and knowledgeable and the campers are friendly, fanatic tennis lovers. You will get a great workout, play a ton of tennis, meet many super friendly people and almost certainly learn something in the process. We have gone to many camps over the years, and the Brady’s are certainly among the best we have enjoyed. Try it, you’ll like it!

  • Avatar NS

    Video review of strokes at beginning was effective for identifying areas for improvement especially for visual learners. Individual instruction without being singled out. Fun, yet challenging. Great value!

  • Avatar JN

    I had a great time at the tennis camp. They showed us videos of our strokes at the beginning of camp and gave us feedback. Having specific things to work on through the camp and now at home was extremely beneficial. The pros were fun and created a positive learning environment with specific feedback for improvement.

  • Avatar KM

    This was my husband and my first time attending a Brady Tennis camp. We just finished the two day Adult camp at UC Santa Barbara. They were recommended by one of our tennis team partners and we were a group of six. I would highly recommend it to any level player but especially to 3.5, 4.0 doubles players. Both KIP and Kevin worked on our doubles games as well as improving fundamental strokes and serves. The atmosphere was fun and competitive and we definitely felt like we were improving. The video analysis was our favorite part because KIP was able to pinpoint areas in our swings we needed to focus on. Driving through the ball, extending the arms and pronation on the serve. We stayed at the Coastal Inn Best Western and were pleasantly surprised by the pool, jacuzzi and beautiful gardens. A delightful quick getaway!

  • Avatar EB

    Family business brings in top college players to augment teaching staff – and they are given focused assignments and do very well in brief rotating stations. Try to mix in fun games but serious players prefer drills and critiqued match simulation. Having been in business for decades operations run smoothly, on time and utilize top quality facilities. Morning clinic followed by pro event is a winning combination. Looking forward to returning.

  • Avatar JL

    The camp was very fun coaches were all great. The drills, round robins, etc were all fun and educational. I learned a lot but wished they had new balls. Seemed like all of the balls were used and flat. Should bring out new balls for the adult tennis camp – that was the main disappointment.

  • Avatar SB

    Hi! I had a great week at the Brady tennis camp. Great instructors and we played a lot of tennis!

  • Avatar KB

    I loved the casual approach.. Pros were talented and offered great skill instruction. I attended even though I had a serious knee injury and was unable to participate in all activities. Pros were very accommodating and included me when I felt able.

  • Avatar MA

    The weeklong camp in the summer is perfect. You’re grouped according to ability in small groups. Each day has a focus where you learn technique and strategy. For example- groundstrokes, serves, offensive shots, defensive shots, footwork etc. You also have match play every day. I’ve been going for years and I love it.

  • Avatar LH

    Lots of good tips and practice from coaches with practical advice

  • Avatar SG

    The Brady staff does a fabulous job of teaching fundamentals and coaching strategy, especially doubles strategy. The instructors are all accomplished players and effective teachers. The camp is an effective mix of skills and drills combined with competitive play. All the staff members are friendly and anxious to help. They create a fun and competitive environment. Last year I attended for a weekend. This year I signed up for the week-long camp. I look forward to attending again next year.

  • Avatar MW

    I’ve attended many of the Brady Tennis Camps over the years and at several of their resort locations from La Costa Resort in San Diego, Palm Desert, and in Santa Barbara (on campus of UCSB). Each time and each location has always be such a great weekend away with my wife. The pro staff are truly skilled & accomplished in there own right (College Scholarships, Semi-Pro and some even on the Pro Tour). Our sons have enjoyed the overnight camps at Santa Barbara. Highly recommend. Great Vibe. Great Tennis.

  • Avatar LS

    Great instructors, knowledgeable, patient and inspiring. Student players were good people, too. Good recognition of players of all levels and real improvement of skills.

  • Avatar YL

    The tennis camp is very impressive. I love all the coaches Kevin, Kip and Carol. They are very friendly and patient. They have years of experience of teaching and organizing camps. The camp was very fun. We also experienced different surface of the courts. We played at clay courts which I had never played before. The Brady camp is different from other camps I have been. I felt like I was in a big family. Coach Kip right away found my backhand weakness even though I have been taking tennis lessons with other coaches for years. Everyone got along well and had lots of fun. It is not only a intensive tennis camp but also a mental relaxation. It definitely worth it.

  • Avatar CR

    Great Value. I checked many other of Camp options for myself and my kids and I can find a better deal. And also some of the pros were excellent. And facility in Santa Barbara was awesome. FYI the food and warm was okay since sometimes I was at the dorm rooms yet still comfortable.

  • Avatar EF

    I am very impressed with the Brady’s camp. What a beautiful family. The Brady brothers and sisters are giving us their best professional tennis skills. They made the camp a big tennis family. They made it so much fun. They care about us. They did video taping to show us how our stroke look like and gave us individual instructions. They also have the best junior camps. My son loves coach Kip. After the camp, everybody is telling me how much improvement my son has made during the camp. We learned a lot from the camp. We will go back again soon!

  • Avatar MF

    This is the best tennis camp We have ever been played. The coaches put their heart into the players technic. They made the camps so much fun. We would love to do many many more camps with them.

  • Avatar PA

    This camp runs in conjunction with the BNP tennis tournament at Indian Wells. You play in the morning, then watch the pros play, and then come back and play in the evening. It’s fun to learn new techniques, then watch the pros execute, and come back at night and try it again after seeing how it’s really done. Nice campers from all over the country, I highly recommend.

  • Avatar LS

    Well structured covering all aspects of singles/doubles play. Fun and competitive drills. Instructors were friendly, observant, helpful. Only weakness was the cost, it has risen dramatically over the past few years. If it keeps rising as it has, at some point the camp will not seem worth the cost.

  • Avatar SO

    Great individualized instruction.

  • Avatar SW

    Good emphasis on fundamentals. Very good focus on Volleying and serving, two under practiced parts of the game. Good mix of demonstration, drills and games.

  • Avatar CG

    The Brady family and curriculum were outstanding and I would attend their camps again. There were two options for housing. One was a small hotel in Isla Vista, or university dorms. I signed up perhaps a little late, and hotels were sold out so my only option was a dorm with two other women. The dorms were in deplorable condition, so I had to go find the last hotel room in Santa Barbara at an additional cost. Note to all that attend, it is a full 8 hours of tennis daily so be sure your shoes and body are up to it! Overall a lovely weekend of tennis

  • Avatar ST

    We go to Brady Tennis Camp every year, and appreciate the consistent instruction and the high level of the instructors!

  • Avatar BL

    This camp coincided with the BNP Parabas Tennis tournament. I have a home in the desert and leaned of the camp from tennis friends. I really enjoyed the tennis camp. I would recommend going with a group of your tennis friends. I went alone (2 friends had to drop out) and found that most people there were with their tennis groups. The instructors are top notch and very outgoing. I learned a lot and will definitely go back again next year.

  • Avatar CH

    I was in a relatively small group of tennis-ers for a 2D Clinic by the Bradys et al during the Indian Wells Tennis weekend in Mar. 2016. I would say that it was an above average ‘camp’ leaving room for some improvements to the organization and grouping of the attendees primarily. The Pros were very knowledgeable about tennis but their handling of the logistics of the sub-groups and the mini-clinics did not seem very well designed. I saw 2.5s grouped with 4.0s and while I recognize we all have to work together in a Clinic setting, the idea of a 4.0 playing points against a 2.5 is rather poorly thought out and affects both players negatively. The attention to planning of the 2D event did not seem to take into account our NTRP ratings we submitted on our application to the camp nor the observed warm-ups on the court just before start. As a 4.0 I was able to glean some helpful info for my game, but my likewise 4.0 friend did not have the same experience at all. She, a 4.0, was grouped with 2.5s during the Serve mini-clinic. This was not conducive to the 4.0 learning at all, especially when the Pro told her ‘Your serve is fine’ (even though she had just changed her Serve) and then proceeded to help ONLY the 2.5s develop even the basic mechanics of a Serve. IMHO, a Clinic of this caliber and expense should be good at helping all Players pretty equally (in time spent and skills shown) that choose to pay and attend, regardless of ranking/abilities. Proper attention, estimation and organization of said Players is of vital importance to a Participant’s Camp experience and learning ability and yes, even in this Clinic setting. Thanks for the ability to share…

  • Avatar ZZ

    It was well organised with excellent pros willing to share experience as well patiently working on individuals weaknesses. Worthwhile spending time and money at the same time enjoying weather and beauties of Palm Springs and Indian Wells Tennis Tournament.

  • Avatar SB

    This was a very well organized tennis experience. I really enjoyed the whole week. Very knowledgeable staff and the group I was in was a lot of fun! In my opinion this was a great camp for the players that are 3.5 and up. The pace was really geared to help players get to the next level .

  • Avatar RN

    Friendly and supportive. Variety of drills. Individual attention and group work. Excellent facility.

  • Avatar BE

    Just completed the 5-day camp at UCSB. Obviously with this extended time, you receive instruction on all aspects of the game, but more importantly, the Brady’s are committed to ensuring you get what you want out of the experience. So if you want to focus on serves… Volleys… Groundies… there’s ample opportunity. During match play, they’ll ask you if you want singles or doubles, and then they make it happen, with very good even matchups. Strengths: well organized, well thoughtout scheduling of each day’s activities, plenty of individual attention, in a friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere. No weaknesses.

  • Avatar SS

    I’ve done about 8 Brady camps in various locations in California. The instruction is great. The Brady family has a formula for technique which you can take or leave but they are also very good at pinpointing small, manageable improvements to your game. Their locations are generally not selected for their beauty or facilities as they use high school and university campuses for atleast some of their camps. The Bradys keep you moving, offering a pretty vigorous tennis vacation. Overall, this is a great choice for tennis, less great for a all-in-one tennis vacation – unless you visit their La Costa camp in November. This one, I hear is beautiful.

    I was very impressed with the professional quality of this tennis camp. It was well run and I got my moneys worth! I highly recommend Brady Tennis Camp. Susanne

    Great job splitting campers by skill level. Also, good mix of drills, games, strategies, and competition. Skilled coaches provide tips and individual instruction as well as inexpensive private lessons if desired. Our kids enjoy the kids’ camp while we partake in the adult camp. We have enjoyed this vacation for four years as the Brady family provide a personal approach.

    Great adult tennis camp! Excellent drills and teaching. Accomodated all levels and the number of people attending very well. Lots and lots of hitting practice and great individual as well as group instruction!

  • Avatar BM

    The Brady Family runs this camp headed by brothers Kip and Kevin. This camp moves around Southern California at different times of the.year. In the past I have attended two of their two day camps at the LaCosta Resort in Carlsbad and most recently the five day camp at UC Santa Barbara. The staff gives you personal attention and various drills in a 3 hour session on four courts each going over a different part of the game, followed by a two hour break continuing on for three hours with drills and doubles matches based on ability. All the pros are friendly and approachable and offer private instruction after class which requires addition fees. Casual atmosphere condusive to learning and having fun.

  • Avatar KH

    If you are looking to improve your tennis skills drastically in just a short amount of time, the Brady tennis camp is the place to go. Along with improving your ground strokes and volleys, you learn to become more mentally prepared in competition through match play with others. There are many other activities in between practices to keep the camp fun and friendly. You make new friends and memories, and overall an amazing experience.

  • Avatar DN

    Our first time to a tennis camp. This is an amazing learning experience. All 9-10 coaches are incredible! What ever we want to improve we have the best of the best to teach us. From service to back-hand to overhead … What we have learned and accomplished during this 2-day camp is equivalent to a once-a-wk lesson for 5-6 months. For Service – Thanks to coach Marc and coach Horea! For the one-hand back hand swing – High-5 to coach Evan for the tip – my husband said that was a ‘million’ dollar tip, and many thanks to coach Kip, Kara, Joe, Tiffany, Kevin, …

  • Avatar PS

    Though this was my first experience attending a tennis camp and I have no actual comparisons, my first venture (with Brady Tennis Camp) was most successful. Through the excellent, enthusiastic, attentive instructors and a variety of drills and simultaneous coaching, I felt a distinct improvement in my confidence and my game. I’ve played “at” tennis for much of my life, but mostly without the necessary corrections. The camp gave me the motivation to continue improving. Thank you!

    Strengths: With the exception of lunch, there was no down-time. It was go, go, go from beginning to end. There were break out stations that allowed you to make it as intense as you wanted it to be. Very helpful video assessment. Coaches roamed during match time to provide real-time tips. Extremely skilled coaches.

    Best Bang for your Buck! This camp at UCSB can be had with or without a dorm room w/ Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. 6+ hours of instruction and play/day. They do a great job of matching you to players of similar skill levels and you get a work out. Great for all ages and skill levels, private instruction is also available. I’ve attended most of their camps all over Southern California. They are my favorite.

    Instruction was very helpful; included improvement of all strokes, net play, serve, footwork, drop shot, slice. Drills were challenging and fun! Effort was made to match like level players. Private lessons offered. Instructors were attentive and very helpful. Overall experience was very enjoyable. I believe my game has definitely improved.

    Kip and all the other instructors are extremely knowledgeable on every aspect of the tennis game. They taught me fundamentals along with proper strategies for both singles and doubles play. Their instructions were easy to understand which is very important because I am rather new to the game but was able to catch on rather quickly. I liked how they put the same skill levels into groups which allowed us to not feel over or underwhelmed. We also got the chance to move up and down groups as our skills increased using a bump up and down system during match play.
    When I began the camp I was at the beginner level and as the days passed I was able to move up two levels! I feel like my level of tennis skill increased substantially during the week long camp and I highly recommend it for any level of tennis player!

    I just finished the weekend camp in Santa Barbara. The pros were very knowledgeable and friendly. In my past experience it felt like the teaching assistants (typically college kids) were just going through the motions, but not at the Brady camp…they were super friendly, enthusiastic, helpful, and knowledgeable. The schedule was well organized, with lots of drills set up to target several shot/focus areas. We were also able customize our experience by spend more time on the drills we needed most. It was held on a college campus, so not a resort atmosphere, and the dorm accommodations were not 4 star, but the scenery still wasn’t bad. All in all a great experience, I’d definitely do it again.

    This is our second visit to Brady camp. This camp provides a unique opportunity for the avid tennis players to improve their game and have lots of fun at the same time. The quality of instruction is superb and the setting is beautiful. Every time I came back from this camp I feel I am taking my game a notch higher. In a span of a week it is impossible to change your game but what Brady’s do an excellent job at pointing out a few aspects and or flaws in you game and then show you the way to improve. I strongly recommend this camp for passionate tennis players.

    Great, enthusiastic, & Professional staff. Multiple drills rotation keeps you on your feet and learning new things and improvements all day long.

    I have been attending the Brady Camps in Santa Barbara California for over 4 years as a 4.0 Singles player (current Southern Cal ranking #23). I always get a fix to a tennis technique to improve my game. The drills used are to provide a great learning situation to develop the techiques and strategies we learn in camp as they apply to match play. I would like to see a little more on returning serves. My improvements at Brady Camp have directly improved my competative ranking. At 53 I am still working on technique and strategy improvements. the Brady Camp provides a new look at my game and provides improvements every year. Best camp I have attended and plan on attending again this year.

  • Avatar SB

    I have attended Brady tennis camps for one week each year for the past six years. Kip and Kevin (and the other pros) keep it simple; see ball, hit ball. They usually have college students from UCSB feeding the drills so they (kip and Kevin) can go from court to court giving tips. By the way the college students play for UCSB and are quite good. Also, they offer reasonable priced hitting lessons through out the camp. After returning home each year I feel the camp has improved my game.

  • Avatar MS

    The tennis camp is a great experience and it very much helps my game. It covers both singles and doubles game. I also really think the Brady family are wonderful.

  • Avatar DW

    I’ve been to many different tennis camps throughout the US and find that Brady Tennis Camp offers the best value and overall great experience. The small groups are broken down by skill level and you work on stroke production and strategy for singles and doubles. The Brady Family are great people!

  • Avatar CF

    I was trying to figure out what keeps me coming back to enjoy the Brady camp. A whole lot of it has to do with the staff: excellent, the participants: fun and enthusiastic, new and returning. Pure fun each and every time!

  • Avatar AB

    A friend of mine suggested I try The Brady Tennis Camp after hearing me say how I wanted to improve my game. At first I was skeptical seeing how I would have to fly all the way from florida but after looking at all my options it seemed quite reasonable even with the price of the plane ticket. Not having any professional training before my technique was lacking. I didn’t realize how much untill after attending the camp. The instructors were extremely knowledgable and had a way of simplifying the instruction to where anyone could understand. Excellent overall camp. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to improve their game.

  • Avatar CM

    I learned a lot, especially on doubles play, volley & groundstrokes. I didn’t get frustrated when I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong because of the instant and constant feedback. Kevin, Kip and their teaching staff are knowledgeable, and more important, PATIENT!! They made the camp very fun too. and can’t beat the fantastic Southern Cal weather we had that weekend too…

  • Avatar DT

    Professional, courteous, respectful and kind instructors. The best tennis camp I’ve ever been too. I love the way everything is runs so smooth without even having to think about what to do next. I always walk away with new skills, techniques and most importantly, improved mental tennis. I love how the Brady’s make me feel special. They have a unique way of teaching without being obnoxious or pushy. I highly recommend the Brady Tennis Camps!

  • Avatar DA

    If you want to hit a lot of balls, get great coaching and come away having elevated your level of play, then attend a Brady Tennis Camp! They are down to earth people who love sharing the game of tennis with the world.
    The camps are fun and very inclusive for all levels. The only weakness would be is that they don’t offer more of them. If they ever offer a camp on grass during Wimbledon (in Calif) or one on Clay (@ La Costa) during the French… I would be there every year!

  • Avatar BG

    As well as holding camps in some of the most beautiful locales, the Brady family of instructors used their years of championship tennis experience to provide great personal attention and tennis instruction throughout the week.

  • Avatar PA

    Strenghts: I’ve now been to three Brady tennis camps because I love it. The instructors truly care about you improving your game and treat you like family. They are very proficient and have good tennis backgrounds (for example Kip Brady is a former ATP Pro). The variety of lessons and match play really help what you learn sink in. As a bonus, it’s also a lot of fun! Weakness : wish they had more camps throughout the year.

  • Avatar JA

    I attended the week-long camp in Santa Barbara. The staff was great, I felt comfortable and learned a ton while I was there. I feel like my strategy really improved, especially my doubles game. i enjoyed the variety of the clinic, and also the competitive match play. It was a very well-rounded camp. I loved the surroundings, and there was a lot of great stuff nearby to do once camp was done for the day. I recommend this camp to all of my friends. I would love to go to another Brady Tennis Camp, it was such an awesome experience!

  • Avatar DA

    I attended their weeklong camp in Santa Barbara. It was excellent. The level of instruction was top notch, the drills were good and we had some fun competitive matches in the afternoons. I definitely saw improvement in my game. I highly recommend the Brady Camp!

  • Avatar SL

    The Bradys have some good seasoned pros teaching the tennis camps. I took the weekend camp at the Home Depot Center in LA. My second tennis camp with the Bradys. I enjoyed their format and teaching methods. The video analysis is helpful in identifying problem areas and working on them. It may be useful for the Bradys to communicate some expectations and needs of the campers; for example, whether food, sport drinks, sun screen are available on site or the campers need to bring along. Overall, a fun camp for adults.

  • Avatar SH

    When I was looking for a tennis camp, I wasn’t sure what to expect as I’d never attended one before. Brady Tennis Camp looked good for a first time experience and I wasn’t dissappointed. Getting a chance to work on all components of my game as well as meet and be challenged by other players met my objectives. The staff of pros did a great job in giving personal instruction, all with a keen eye for where my techniques could improve with easy enough instructions to make the corrections needed. As an example, just 15 minutes with the serving pro and my toss problems are becoming a thing of the past. Video taping of my groundstrokes and serve gave me feedback on what I was doing right (and wrong).
    The schedule of morning clinics, afternoon pick-a-court and supervised match play worked well. I’ve been playing just a bit over a year, taking clinics at my club (Oakland Hills Tennis Club) and playing USTA Womens and Mixed Doubles at the 3.0 level. Having 2 days of concentrated effort around my game provided more focus and increased my confidence.

    Fun week of tennis for juniors and adults. Would recommend it for anyone looking to improve their game in a relaxed setting.

    The Brady Tennis is an excellent camp to attend solo, with a spouse, with friends or as a family. It is the best tennis camp I have ever attended and everyone should take at least one Brady Camp a year. The format and the instructors are phenomenal and it is a lot of fun too. I highly recommend this tennis camp.

  • Avatar CD

    Brady camp offers both weekend and week long stays, which makes it convenient for thos who work during the week or those that just want to work on their tennis all week long. I’ve only attended the weekend sessions and it’s jam-packed with activity. I like the group size and how everyone in the group is around the same level. I also like rotating through the different drills they have, which allow me to work on different aspects of my game – groundstrokes, serves, volleys, etc.
    The camp also mixes in strategy lessons, which is important for match play. They provide lots of opportunity for practice matches, and have a mini tournament at tne end of camp. There is one aspect of camp which I think is a bit of a disadvantage for the more advanced players. They have an option where you can go to any pro’s court and get more instruction on whatever the pro is teaching at that court.
    It seems like the beginners benefit more from this and receive more instruction and attention, which doesn’t seem to benefit me if I wanted to be part of the mix. So most likely I end up going to the least crowded court, which is not necessarily the court I want to be on. But other than that, the camp is great, the locations are great (I’ve been to almost all of the southern CA locations), the games are fun, the pros are fantastic, and you get a good workout plus tips you can take back home with you and practice on your own.

  • Avatar MM

    I’ve been attending Brady camps since I moved out west several years ago. I’ve spent a lot of time attending camps over the years, primarily in Florida, I have pretty high expectations and I’ve found very, very few camps that satisfy my expectations. The Brady camps, weekend or week long, have consistently provided me with the right blend of fitness, strategic and technical training. They’ve also mad enough quality players in attendance to make things interesting and to make me work hard during competitive drills and match play. The bottom line is that I’ve always left their camps exhausted, having learned something, and most importantly, playing at my absolute best.
    Honestly, the biggest weakness of their camps is simply that they do not have enough of them. I’d love to be able to attend camp at least one weekend per-month.

  • Avatar SQ

    I’ve been going to the Brady Tennis for the past 5 years and I’ve enjoyed the instruction, strategy, video sessions and of course sunny Santa Barbara. The Brady Pros are great and the exhibition match is not to be missed! You will hundreds of balls and watch your game improve beyond your expectations.

  • Avatar BG

    Great family atmosphere for learning and growing my tennis game. The teachers were all top flight college players who also played on the tour for a bit. Also, you can tell that they have all taught together for years because they anticipate your needs and evaluate your progress very well.

  • Avatar KS

    Brady Camps offer a wide variety of camps from Santa Barbara to Palm Springs and from two days to an entire week. The one I attended was at Indian Wells (Palm Springs) during the BNP Paribas Open. In addition to the top level tennis instruction, both group and private, we attended two days of the pro tournament. It was awesome! The Brady’s are some of the most pleasant and enjoyable people you can meet. The camp I attended offered three levels of hotel accommodations which is nice, but you are on your own for food. I will be attending the two day camp this week in Los Angeles and a week long adult camp in Santa Barbara this summer.

  • Avatar MD

    I enjoyed the two Brady camps my husband and I attended. I was anxious because my husband is a 3.5 and I am only a 2.5. The camp was wonderful! They truly work well with all ability levels! The groups were kept small and the quality of instruction was high! Santa Barbara was a wonderful location (as well as Palm Springs)! We plan on going a week every summer!

  • Avatar LR

    Good balance of technique sessions and match play. positive instructors. most instructors competed at a college level and at least one instructor was on the pro tour. draws players of all levels.

  • Avatar FC

    Kip and Kevin are terrific. They have it very well organized and give you the sense that you are having ultimate fun while truly learning or improving skills. The atmosphere the staff creates for the kids is second-to-none. Honestly, the Brady Camp is lean on weaknesses, perhaps the only thing being the dorm setting for the overnight, however, the UCSB campus is just awesome adjacent to the ocean…

  • Avatar LS

    Strengths: Instructors really know how to teach and demonstrate the skills to fit different levels. They make it fun, entertaining, and educational. We practice what they preach and it actually sinks in. Weakenesses: They don’t do these camps often enough.

  • Avatar JF

    I really enjoyed attending the weekend Brady Camp at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. (It is where the WTA holds their summer tournament) The Brady’s are organized and the camp runs smoothly. I really liked working on different aspects of the game for 30 minutes without interruption. The pace was fast, but not too fast. The instruction and feedback were well worth it. I also like the video analysis. I have recommend the camp to friend and they had similar experiences. Thanks Brady’s!

  • Avatar DB

    I have been to this camp twice. After my husband went and thought it was great, we took the family to the family camp. The kids loved it, and so did we. It was challenging, fun, and we saw improvement in our skills. I next invited my teammates (when they asked how I had improved) and we had a weekend at Indian Wells, loved the camp and seeing the finals. Instruction is great, friendly family atmosphere, and great instruction.

  • Avatar LV

    I attended the Brady Tennis Camps at three different locations. All three locations are run the same way. Well organized, well rounded drills targeting specific areas of tennis, fun competitions. What I like most is the full immersion experience. For two days, I’m focus on nothing but tennis. The UCSB location is a great vacation get away for the budget consious. La Costa is much more upscale and priced accordingly for a more luxurious get away. The Home depot Center, is a great facility that offers local residents a great way to make an inexpensive day trip.

    Strenght: The Brady Tennis Camp provides expert, quality tennis instruction provided by qualified, experienced and friendly pro instructors! Weakness: NONE–Not enough time in the day to enjoy the valuable experience! 🙂

    The Brady Camp is a great camp for every level player. Stroke fundamentals, movement and strategy are all covered and put into practice with great drills and team match play. Perfect for either the beginner and/or seasoned player.

    Great Junior Camp at UCSB. My daughter played several hours of tennis a day with people from all over. She loved the campus and had a great time with her group leaders.

  • Avatar MO

    The Brady Clinic was the best I’ve been to since Vic Braden’s Orange County camp in 1982. The skill of the pros were exceptional. The family approach was warm, friendly and very capable. When I told them that I was headed to eight claycourt USTA tennis tournaments on clay, they allowed me to play exclusively on the two clay courts. It was a fabulous experience, so when they announced the formation of a WTT league, I signed up for what would be my first experience. Its early, but thus far everything, including the Mountaingate Country Club venue has also been impeccable! P.S. the Brady Camp that I attended had no flaws.

  • Avatar GM

    Really recommend Brady Tennis Camp! Great instructors who make it fun and strive to turn us all into better players. Technical instruction superb – fast paced and didn’t want the weekend to end.

  • Avatar BS

    Great work on fundamental skills and more advanced skills. Excellent teaching staff. I have developed my skills and have received many practical tips that have enhanced my game. I have continued to learn by attending several of the Brady Camps over the past ten years. Recently I have been successful in improving my second serve and making adjustments on my backhand.

  • Avatar RS

    I have had a great time with the Brady family and crew. I’ve taken three camps and loved them all. Great workout, great pointers from their pros and more tennis then my body can take! Also, met a lot of good people taking the camp as well.
    `We especially love the family camp in Santa Barbara in June. We stay in the dorms, eat the dorm food (much better then when we were in school!) and the location is perfect. Our daughter loves the camp and really enjoys the coaches who are friendly and fun. Though the workouts/drills can be intense- it is intensely fun and has really made me a better player. We have seven more weeks until the Santa Barbara Brady Camp…. can’t wait!

  • Avatar DS

    The tennis instruction is very professional and comprehensive. The camp does a good job in paring you up with others who are at a similar level. The camp has also been a good opportunity for my entire family to improve our tennis and have fun together. I love that my daughter can attend the junior camp while my husband and I attend the adult one, and then meet up for meals at the UCSB dorms.
    As far as the dorms go, well… it’s what you might expect. One can chose to stay in a hotel but the dorms are very convenient and economical, and the food is plentiful. I am a repeat customer and have recommended the camp to others.
