Walla Walla Tennis and Wine Camps

Walla Walla, Washington

By Roger Cox, Editor

For three long weekends each summer, Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington becomes the staging ground for an unusual camp focused on tennis and wine. Campers spend part of the day on court and the rest touring local wineries and indulging in winemaker dinners. Terroir expert Dr. David Pogue kicks off the camp on Thursday evening by providing a regional view of the relationship between the land and the wines of eastern Washington and then leads tours and tastings.
