“The greatest enemy you will ever face is fear. Learn to recognize and understand it. Once you do that you will learn how to stop it entering your body and mind.”- John Newcombe
Tennis Touring Team 2012
We are excited to have selected the 2012 Tennis Touring Team to travel to England in the summer of 2012. As always the team represents the wide spread popularity of the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch and the best tennis camp in the US. There are kids from New York, New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. The tennis campers have all been chosen on their attitude and effort. The winter tennis camp in which we chose them saw almost 200 kids competing for a spot to go. These tennis campers led the camp incredibly well! They can be proud that they helped NEWKS develop even more great campers, tennis players and people! The field of young tennis players was so strong this year, that we decided to choose our largest team ever, 10 girls and 10 boys.
The tour includes a week of tennis camp at NEWKS, and 3 weeks in Europe. The kids will enjoy a few days of awesome tennis at Wimbledon. They will travel to Liverpool and enjoy the Beatles Museum as well as competing against a tennis academy there. The tour will then turn North towards Scotland where against popular opinion they do speak English. We will compete against some academies here and play a tourney with the best tennis players in Scotland, as well as do some incredible site- seeing! The tour will wrap up with a day in England to see Greenwich mean- time, views of the Thames, the royal palace and maybe even a live show!
It will again be an unforgettable experience in the summer of 2012! The anticipation will build throughout the year to a point where the kids are at a new level of excitement! The John Newcombe Tennis Ranch is proud of all the tennis team members, alternate selections, honorable mentions, and all of our campers and guests. You all create the excitement for this Legend-ary European touring team! – Chris Jacques, Touring Team Director
