We're back! Our popular Sweet Briar, Virginia Adult Summer Clinics are returning in June. Our elite coaching staff of ATP, WTA, ITF and Davis Cup Pros will cover stroke production, supervised matchplay, competitive drilling and tactical sessions.

While staying on campus is not required, most Sweet Briar camp participants enjoy the nostalgia of "going back to college" by living on campus for the clinic. Air conditioned single and double rooms are offered for your comfort.

Our Scheduled Clinics:

June 9-11 ~ Adult Weekend Clinic
June 12-15 ~ Boomer Clinic
June 16-18 ~ Drill & Play Weekend Clinic

Sweet Briar's 3300 acre campus includes an indoor pool, a large gymnasium, mountain biking/hiking trails, and 2 lakes for boating and fishing.
