    As a birthday present, my parents are letting me to go to a tennis camp for a week over the winter break. Since Newk gets a great review, I was wondering if anyone has been to this "Advanced Top Gun Camp" because I am definately interested. The camp runs from Dec 26 to Dec 31 and costs about $600. Does anyone know if $600 include room and board?

    Anyway, if anyone here could supply more info, I would really appreciated.

    I think so. I was looking at the same camp for my son. I have not called or wrote them with questions. When you confirm please let me know what you find. Also after you go let us know your thoughts. Thanks and have a good time.

    I'll be there... It includes everything for the price. It is worth the price and is an excellent tennis camp. Email me for other questions @ tennisnerd@gmail.com

    Me and my son were there two years ago. That was our third time there. I would normally recommend Newk to anyone but not during Holiday time.

    I was disappointed considered how great it was the other two times. First, some of the best coaches went back to Australia for holidays, so they were absent. Second, they would take in whole bunch of kids that could only come for a few days (some even came only for one day). So some kids would come and go. For a few days the camp was just overcrowded for the few pros who were there. There were some more quirks due to holiday problem but those were the two biggest turnoffs.

    Well I am a junior player and I have attended the junior camps two or three times and have attended the academy. I have been to the Top Gun Camp one time and it was a blast. I am signed up for this year too. It does include room and board. It is a great place to go for a good time around Christmas time, more for the fun than for the tennis. The tennis will be good, but it is centered more around having fun and maybe making the Touring Team:D

    One of the biggest things of the xmas camp is to make the touring team and Newk's is about 'high performance' (anyone who has been there should know who says this) fun y tennis.
