The USA Tennis NJTL Invitational Tennis Camp was created in 1984 to provide an educational as well as motivational tennis experience for USA Tennis NJTL participants who could not afford such an opportunity. The camp's objective is to provide an opportunity for USA Tennis NJTL participants to be part of a life lasting tennis and social experience. The weeklong session emphasizes individual skill development, physical fitness, proper nutrition, good sportsmanship and other healthy attitudes. Tennis is the focus of the week; however, other activities are planned such as, sightseeing, swimming, cultural and social activities.

The camp will take place in Los Angeles, California, August 3-9, 2002. Adult counselors will meet the campers at the airport and will be with them for the entire week. Thirty-two lucky players from USA Tennis NJTL Programs and Chapters will be invited to attend the camp. To download the official Invitational Tennis Camp Application and Rules please click here.
