    I'm a big fan of tennis camps. No, I really don't think a couple of days of instruction and drills are going to transform your game. And I feel it's better to get coaching from someone who knows you than someone who has just met you and, after a couple of days, will probably never see you again. But I think that tennis camps are fun for adults like me who don't get to play as often as they'd like: job and family often cited as obstacles to tennis. So now that I've moved to the *******, I've been looking into area weekend camps, which won't use up valuable vacation time. I see that Northwestern in Evanston, IL operates a Nike adult camp ... run by the coach of the men's team, Paul Torricelli. Anyone know anything about this camp?

    Thanks.

    I don't know the first thing about it, but I'm signed up for the June 2 session. Hope it's good!

    Hmmm. I'm not sure why "*******" was ******ed out. I guess the region is an obscenity to some people.

    I haven't decided yet to sign up for June 2nd or June 9th. It depends on my work schedule. But I'm curious. Torricelli was Todd Martin's coach, NU's men's team is ranked in the top 50, I believe. I recently witnessed NU women's team (ranked #9) demolish Minnesota's. And the courts look nice. So I'm just looking for some fun and adventure.
