Here's what others have had to say about Sugarbush Resort and New England Tennis Holidays at Sugarbush.
"I have been to other camps in the past, but whenever I attend tennis camp at Sugarbush, I leave with a sense of brand new confidence in my game and with knowledge as to how to improve my strokes when I am on the court. I play a lot of doubles and wanted to understand correct positioning on the court; this was covered so thoroughly that I feel I am now able to take a more confident attitude to my game.
I was concerned the first time I attended the camp (2015) that the group (over 14 attending) would not allow for individual attention, however that was not the case as there was one pro for every four people, and as a result, I got so much out of the daily lessons. A year later 2016, I attended another camp, where there were only four of us which proved to be equally amazing! I believe the attention to each player and the incredible knowledge base exhibited by all the pros, allows for the right amount of feedback and stroke improvement regardless of the number of players attending.
I have just finished my third camp and have moved up in my personal rating. I rate this camp as the best ever!!
The added bonus to this camp was that I could choose how many days to attend as job commitments often prevent me from doing a complete five-day package.
You can only get better, learn more, and become a proficient tennis player with them. I am looking forward to next year!
Thank you to the amazing pros, and to Curt and Claire for bringing New England Tennis Holidays to Sugarbush, Vermont."—G.S., Adv. Int., September 2017
"I attended a 4-day camp in July, which was my 10th or so time visiting NETH. I've gone to others, but I think the instruction at NETH is exceptional. Both Kurts and JJ took my ground strokes and fine-tuned them into things of beauty. The improvement after each visit is obvious, and keeps getting better even after you've left as their words come back to you and what they've said sinks in. The reason I am writing this today, almost two months after our visit, is because while playing singles with my husband, I suddenly remembered something Cord said about serving, a sticking point for me. It was like a light went on. I started doing what he said, and suddenly my serve was there and I started winning games instead of losing because of double faults. I've been to all 3 New England locations, and all have their charms. The food is good, and it's a wonderful, social way to improve your tennis game!"—M.M., Adv. Int., September 2017
"I am a 4.0 player and this was my first time going to a tennis camp. I went with a friend who is also a 4.0. We chose a 2 day camp for Friday and Saturday. The coach was very friendly and the instruction was helpful, overall. We were able to modify the drills as per the needs of the group and both my friend and I had a very good time. I only wish the camp was a bit more intense. After 2 days of camp, I expected to have to drag myself off the court but was able to stay on the court for another 2 hours and hit."—R.A., Adv.

"Loved this place in all respects. Most importantly, however, the staff/pros were the best and always made the unnecessary efforts without trying to be noticed. That says a lot. I will go back every year, I already know it."—C.H., Low Int., August 2017
"Just returned home after 3 days at NETH at Sugarbush. There is good reason it is rated as one of the top camps in the country, and I have attended several of them. Instruction is personalized and top-notch; there is the right mix of talk, drills, and games; the accommodations are outstanding, and the pros have a sincere desire to make sure everyone walks away with easy-to-remember tips to uniquely improve his/her game. Kudo to JJ and Kord who totally 'got' my style of tennis and showed me how to bring my game to the next level!"—S.A., Adv. Int., August 2017
"Recently attended the five day tennis camp at Sugarbush with 3 friends. Had a blast and learned a lot! Coaches were fantastic and there wasn't a minute wasted. Met some great people and thoroughly enjoyed every day, but have to say....was exhausted when I returned home to GA! Would love to go back!"—K.H., Low Int., August 2017
"The staff at NETH was very helpful and had lots of patience with somewhat new beginners. If you had a questions or needed some individual tips they had the answers. The drills and vids helped improve performance. They also sent you home with tips on winning in tennis. I will never forget Calm, Quiet, and Square.The four Georgia girls nickname"the swingers"..... because we would swing at the volleys... at the end of five days we all improved. Thanks to all 5 pros."—P.M., Beg., August 2017

"4:1 player to pro ratio, of the 4 pros only 2 gave significant helpful tips, and of the 2, one of them was exceptional. Fun, upbeat attitudes.
Excellent, well-matched group of attendees; beautiful setting in the mtns of VT; well-organized activities with little downtime kept us on the court and happy.
My only recommendation would be more involvement by all of the pros. Highly recommend."—K.H., Int., July 2017
"Lots of individual attention including with close and meaningful review of videos of campers in action a definite plus
focus where it should be on individual improvement of strokes as well as gamelike situations
beautiful location, great coaches, very nice campers every time (have now been to a NETH camp six times (mostly Sugarbush)"—S.R., Adv. Int., July 2017
"This summer marked our 20th anniversary and our third visit to the New England tennis camp at Sugarbush. The accommodation at Clay Brook has always been outstanding: beautiful rooms, fabulous views and excellent service. These are nice perks, but the reason we keep coming back is for the tennis. This year the head pro was Walter, a gentleman and a gifted teacher. He had a genuine interest in giving personalized instruction and practical advice to each participant. Each day we had our strokes (volley, forehand, backhand) recorded and analyzed. Every player was provided with (unhurried) thoughtful and useful feedback. The days (five FULL hours each) were structured with a variety of warm-ups, drills, points games, group games and tie-break games. Over three days, every major aspect of playing tennis was addressed. The pacing of the activities was well planned; never boring, never too hard or too slow. The assistant pros used Walter's feedback (and their own observations) to immediately begin implementing the tips that would improve our tennis. Kord's upbeat enthusiasm and running commentary was always entertaining and informative. The younger pros (Connor and Ryan) were gracious and professional. We will be back."—J.J., Int., July 2017
"I loved the skilled coaches who could really analyze your strokes using slow motion video and give you actionable ways to improve and then communicate with the other coaches who then reinforced the plan for improvement in subsequent drills and play."—E.S., Adv. Int., July 2017
