With the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have all been faced with adapting how we live, work and learn.

Due to NCAA Division I and Big 12 restrictions, we unfortunately will not be able to host camps until at least after August 31, 2020.


Our Coaches and Staff will continue to monitor and follow guidelines from the CDC, NCAA and The University of Kansas.

If restrictions are lifted, we are looking at potentially hosting a holiday camp later this year.


Your feedback is invaluable. Please click here to complete a quick one-question survey about your interest in adult clinics and holiday camps.

Feel free to share with other tennis players and families that may be interested.
