I just returned from a weekend at Newks Tennis Ranch and had an amazing experience. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. We stayed in a two bedroom condo that had a kitchen, washer and dryer and two bathrooms. Our days were spent on the tennis courts, with a quick wardrobe change at lunchtime. The instruction was phenomenal, and the drills...

We just finished a most delightful week at the Newcombe Tennis Ranch.. We were very lucky, because the last few days were quiet, and we were close to a one to one pro/client ratio. The pros were knowledgable, fun, enthusiastic, fit, and delightful teachers. Adrian, James, Marissa, Melissa, Tavan, Michael, Chris, and Elijah, could not have been more helpful and...

My son attended the Newcombe tennis camp for the first time this summer. He is 13 years old. He had a great time, however I don't think it was a good value. He attended the third week in July and apparently is was over crowded with his age group. He was told he would be evaluated the first afternoon which...

Thank you for your review of our junior program. As the Tennis Director of our camps for the last 30 years, please find my comments below: 1) We are never 'over crowded.' We are always a 6:1 ratio of campers to staff or better (often times we operate at 5:1 and 4:1) 2) The particular week your camper attended, we...

My son has attended week-long camps at Newks for 3 years now, starting at age 11, and he's had excellent experiences each time. He's attended in the summer and the week between Christmas and New Year's. The camp is designed to teach the fundamentals of tennis at the most basic tier, and has several levels up to "Top Gun", which...

I took my team for a high school weekend tennis camp and team building. The tennis instruction was great. The instructors were super energetic. My team improved and loved every minute. The team building was excellent. Each person was pushed to his/her limits. I can't say enough good things about our team building instructors Andy and Vicky. I highly recommend...

I spent a week doing the intensive adult tennis program. There were only two other students, so the coach to student ratio was about 1:1. The coaches were young, but enthusiastic and well trained. They were able to identify problems in my game and ways to fix them. The ranch has both hard and clay courts, so I could choose...

A great ranch setting in the hill country! Nothing fancy, but the rooms are comfortable and clean, the food was good, the beer was cold and the tennis was fantastic! A special treat was to meet and listen to John Newcombe himself. Chris and all the pros were knowledgable and really made learning fun! All and all a great weekend....
