    I'm thinking about going to "ATA" for 4 weeks in july and I was just wondering if there are better camps out there for the same price range or a review on this place? Thanks in advance.:)

    If you are looking to spend that kind of money I would suggest going out of this country.

    I'm going to Spain for two weeks in July, and I've experienced tennis academies in Los Angeles and Southern California and they are good for hitting a lot of balls but the kids aren't motivated, and the competition isn't up to par for top knotch players looking to get the most out of their money.

    That's why I'm taking my game to the real clay.


    Just some words of wisdom.

    Sanchez-casal in europe.


    That is a hot spot for talented juniors looking to be at their best level.

    The atmosphere is so much different, the kids have so much more drive.

    I've also heard that Germany has many of the top kids as of right now, and their tennis is booming in some locations.


    I would also reccomend Paris.


    Again these are top knotch, it doesn't get any better than this.


    And once you go there you will have kids that are so good, and you know what to compare your game to, instead of getting a false idea of comparing your game to juniors who are not very good. Thus, making you feel like you are a superior player and your really not.

    Just a thought.

    One more thing is that I am visiting the sanchez-casal spain academy this summer.

    ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IS FROM REVIEWS I HAVE HEARD. ^^^^

    My coach has given me details and it sounds very accurate, and of course it is obvious since they are producing the world's best tennis players: Europe.
