My son, Lance, just spent 4 days playing with Daniel Nabedrick and his awesome support staff at the Palm Desert Tennis camp (PDTC). Lance is a 13 year old high performance junior (UTR 6, top 100 Nor Cal in b14s). Two words to describe Daniel’s operation is WORLD CLASS-- in terms of instruction, weather, and the beautiful facility.
Daniel runs a tight ship and has many support staff to make sure that his guests are attended to. He has an eye on every aspect of his operation and there is no such thing as idle time at PDTC. On the first day Lance arrived 20 minutes early and was snatched up right away by staff member Jeff Roy to get him warmed up. By the time camp officially started Daniel had already had a chance to observe Lance’s strengths and weaknesses and make a plan for him.
Lance has struggled for a long time with certain aspects of his game (slice and kick serve, forehand hook shot, organization) and Daniel isolated these problems and made real progress in fixing them. Over the 4 days there was a nice balance between technique, match play, drills, and games. Lance played both with other juniors as well as no less then 5 members of his support staff. Daniel would watch as Lance played with different opponents and constantly have Lance make adjustments. Daniel has a wealth of experience as he was a great junior player, has coached top nationally ranked players, and is generally an enthusiastic student of the sport.
Lance had such an extraordinary experience at PDTC. He placed third in his first tournament back home after your camp. He is a different player. Thanks Daniel, we will be back soon.
