About the Camp
Luther Tennis Camp will emphasize drills, shot selection, playing high percentage tennis, target serving, and competitive opportunities that are designed to challenge campers and improve overall skill level. Campers will be exposed to a variety of situations that occur during the course of a match. Mental toughness and new ways of breaking down an opponent will give you more confidence in future matches!

Renovated Tennis Courts
A renovation of the outdoor tennis courts in the summer of 2017 marked the beginning of a new era for Luther College tennis. The college’s 12 courts were replaced using post-tension concrete and resurfaced using a state-of-the-art method resulting in a more durable, stable and consistent playing surface. In 2022, the college’s indoor court were updated with new high quality materials resulting in four courts to compliment the outdoor courts.
