Here’s a one-two punch that should appeal to many tennis enthusiasts. California’s Carmel Valley is one of the great destination sites in the state: gentle slopes, inviting woods, quiet streams and occasional deer – it’s a sublime getaway site. The much-celebrated Carmel Valley Ranch, in the heart of the valley, offers tennis players the extraordinary instructional skill of the Peter Burwash International group. At the PBI World Tennis Camp, this June 4-8 at Carmel Valley Ranch, you can come for the tennis – five days and over 19 hours of instruction and programs, including themed clinics and fun competitive play – while also enjoying the unparalleled setting: a 500-acre all-suite resort with a spa and fitness center, three pools, an apiary, organic gardens and a vineyard. Worth the price of admission is a presentation by Peter Burwash himself.
“Whether you want to go for a bee experience [at the apiary] or visit the organic vineyard and go or on a hike, all of those things are available,” says Carmel Valley Director of Tennis Clark Corey, who promises that “all aspects of your game will be worked on” on the court. In addition to a strong focus on groundstrokes and baseline play, net and mid-court shotmaking and doubles strategy, this installment of the Tennis for Life camp series has the special bonus of a presentation by five-time Hall of Fame coach, former tour player and PBI CEO Burwash, who will share his 40-plus years of insight with guests and participants. Trust us – he’s one of the greatest speakers in sports, who imparts profound life lessons. For more info call (866) 633-7452 or (281) 363-4707 or go to www.pbitennis.com.
