I've read the other posts but its unclear whether the posters were juniors or adults, so I wanted to start a thread that is meant only for juniors who have been to either or preferably both.

If you are a parent you can comment on your son/daughter's experience at the camps. Thanks!

The program at Saddlebrook is intense. It will definately test your physical and mental toughness after a week.
What ever you physical conditioning is now you will want to work on being at your peak by the time you get there.
As any intense program expect drill after drill after drill.

As for fun you mentioned in the other thread, yes you will have moments of fun and moments that you are very frustrated.
If you are looking for someplace to go to hit a few balls and joke around on the court then Saddlebrook and Bollettieri are NOT
the places to go. These camps are for people who are seriously looking to do what it takes to get better at the sport.
