“My 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter are both in Francisco’s summer camp. They have both experienced a few tennis camps/academies in southern California and bay area. Francisco’s academy is rated the best according to my son. He tells me fun stories about the camp almost every day. The camp is intensive as well, with quite a lot footwork training. This is very good since my son wants to improve himself for open tournament competition. Coaches are encouraging and fun to work with. My daughter fits in the camp too. Kids are grouped according to the skill level, so that it is fun for all the kids. I highly recommend silicon valley tennis academy led by Francisco.”  Y.Chen
