    Chuck Kriese Camp

    I am very pleased to announce that Chuck Kriese, four time National Coach of the Year at Clemson, and TTU alumnus, is coming to Cookeville again this summer. This camp is designed for high school players and advanced level middle school players. The camp primarily deals with tennis techniques but also covers the mental aspects of tennis, strategy, motivation, fitness, and other elements that are key drivers to tennis success.

    Saturday, July 10th 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
    Sunday, July 11th 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
