MISSION STATEMENT

We hope to provide a positive, learning environment in which the camper can learn fundamentals, individual skills, and competitive skills if they want to advance their game to the next competitive level. Additionally, we want to expose the campers to instructors and players who have been successful on the NAIA, Division I, and professional level. The camper’s growth as a player and person is important to us while spending the week at Wildcat Tennis Camp.

FACILITIES AND PARKING

The Dr. H.H. Downing Outdoor Tennis Complex, and the 9-court Hilary J. Boone Varsity Tennis Stadium Complex, is the facility for the Wildcat Tennis Camp. It is located off of Cooper Drive in Lexington, across from the Lexington Community College. One of the nation’s finest indoor collegiate facilities, the Boone Indoor Center, houses the Wildcat Tennis Hall of Fame and serves as the headquarters for the camp. All registration will take place Indoors. The parking lot to the right of Sports Center Drive is available during the summer for you to park and walk your camper to the Indoors Building. Paid parking is also available in the new parking garage adjacent to the tennis courts. You may enter the Boone Center off of the grass facing Cooper or come down the sidewalk (Complex Drive) and enter by crossing the outdoor tennis courts.

TRAINER

A University of Kentucky trainer will be a member of our full-time staff and will stay in the dorm with our campers. Please notify our trainer at check-in of any special health concerns you may have.
