"The Van Der Meer Tennis Adult Clinic was
exactly what we were looking for. The instructors,
headed by Steve and Doctor Lou, were very professional
and personable. Our clinic was small enough that we
received group instruction as well as plenty of individual
time with Gabby, Alex and Ricardo. The campus at Sweet
Briar College is a beautiful setting and the tennis
facility is top notch. The accommodations were adequate,
yet comfortable. The food was excellent and more than
we ever expected. We are looking forward to next year."
really great instruction. Loved the video so that
everyone could see for themselves how they did.
Enjoyed everyone's company"
