    I am trying to find any additional opportunities to learn tennis besides the traditional private lessons and drills. Does anyone know of any adult camps or academys that offer tennis training or footwork training in ILLinois? The only decent camp offered in IL is the Nike Northwestern Tennis camp but that is only in the summer

    Thanks

    Where in Illinois are you located?
    What is your age and level?

    The best progress is achieved with the instructor/nitting partner
    that knows what he/she is doing.

    I am located in Morton Grove and teach from Hoffman Estates to
    Fort Sheridan.

    Send me mail.

    Regards, Predrag

    I believe Northwestern has a Nike camp in Mid March too.

    I live in Morton Grove.
    Work full time as a Software Engineer in Hoffman Estates.
    I am not associated with any club, and do teaching on the public courts. I am rated 5.0.
    Currently have 4 students, all in Highland Park, plus my own children.
    I do teaching, stringing, racket customization, video analysis.
    I also give table tennis lessons (even if it is irrelevant you :D )

    I do not have certification. Why? I did not have time to do it.

    If you are interested you can have a free trial.

    Hey predrag I would be interested in a trial. Maybe when it gets warmer out we can set something up. In general I seem to have success with teachers that are extremely specific and detailed in their explnations of what I need to do.

    Actually I could do even something before it warms up.
    If you'd like to pay $10 guest fee, I am a member at Meadow Club,
    on the Golf Rd.
    There is no court fees, the only thing is that you have to book a
    court a week in advance (6am sharp) since so many players are
    taking advantage of it.
    And I do have a court every day :)

    Send me an email. Weekends, I am accessible at:
    predrag_rakic@yahoo.com .

    Regards, Predrag
