Location & Facilities

Clemson University is located in the northwest corner of South Carolina and situated at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The main campus covers 600 acres and is surrounded by spacious Lake Hartwell and beautiful tree-mantled hills. Clemson is easily accessible from I-85 and highways 123 and 76. It is just two hours away from Atlanta, Ga., Asheville, and Charlotte, N.C., and the Palmetto State capital of Columbia. Greenville, S.C. is less than 30 minutes away.

The Tiger Tennis Camp features 21 Laykold outdoor courts and four indoor courts. Located adjacent to the tennis center complex is an intramural track for physical conditioning. Directly across the street is the modern Fike Recreation Center, complete with an Olympic size swimming pool and separate diving tank. Other recreation facilities include ping-pong and pool tables, an eight-lane bowling alley, as well as an indoor and outdoor basketball court.

Lodging / Security / Meals

A spacious and air-conditioned dormitory is provided for the campers. All meals will be served in an air-conditioned dining room at Harcombe Food Court with food service provided by Aramark (ARA). Harcombe Dining Hall is an on-campus cafeteria offering a variety of selections and unlimited portions. A snack bar is available each night to provide snacks and refreshments after the evening games. The first meal for the overnight campers will be Sunday evening after check-in and the last meal for night and day campers will be lunch Thursday. Day campers are responsible for their evening meal Sunday before the 6:00-830 p.m. evaluation period.

This year campers will be housed in the newly renovated Greek Residence Halls Norris and Bradley located at the heart of the campus in what is considered the Quad Area. All dorms are air-conditioned and supervised 24 hours a day. Each room accommodates 2 campers as double occupancy rooms. Beds are oversized single (38" x 85"). The dorms are conveniently located within walking distance to the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center and the Clemson Student Union area where the campers will take their meals at Harcombe Dining Hall.

Campers reside and participate in a safe and monitored environment throughout the camp week. Only Clemson University youth camps are permitted in the dormitories during the summer. The room assignments are made according to age and gender. There are no co-ed dorms. At Tiger Tennis Camp, the camp counselors reside in the same dormitories as the campers attending the camp. These counselors are always available to our campers 24 hours a day while camp is in session.

Roommate Requests

Please be sure to indicate your roommate requests on your application. Roommate preference must be requested by both campers. If no request is made, a roommate will be assigned to you based on your age. Each dorm room accommodates 2 campers in a double occupancy room. If you have indicated your selection for a roommate please be sure they have requested you! Roommate assignments are made one week prior to each camp session; changes made after that time cannot be guaranteed.

Please Note for Teams: Roommate assignments must be made by a coach or team manager and submitted to the camp office NO LATER THAN TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION.

Key Deposit / Lost Keys

If a camper loses their room key during the camp session, they will be required to pay a $75.00 fee to replace the lock. This fee is imposed by the Clemson University Housing Department. This refundable deposit is collected at check-in on Sunday.

Spending Money

We recommend campers bring no more than $25.00 in small bills. Vending machines are available in the dorms and campers may purchase snacks and drinks in the store located next to the dining hall.

Racquets may be restrung at camp for a fee of $20.00 per racquet. If string is supplied by the camper the fee is $10.00. Please plan ahead if you know you regularly break strings.

Lost / Stolen Items

Tiger Tennis Camp is not liable for theft or loss of a camper's personal property. It is the responsibility of the camper to keep their door locked when they are away from their dormitory room. Campers are encouraged not to bring a large amount of money or valuable items to camp (i.e., TV, CD player, etc.)

Camper Mail & Cars

Please mail early in the camp week to:

c/o Tiger Tennis Camp
PO Box 1251,

Dormitory telephone numbers will be posted at camp registration check-in along with all pertinent camp telephone numbers, fax numbers, and emails.

Campers who drive to camp must park in a designated area and turn in their car keys to the camp director at registration. Keys will be returned at check-out.

Inclement Weather

Camp will continue during rainy weather. Clemson University is equipped with a lightening alert system. When the siren goes off, campers will be escorted off the courts to the indoor tennis center or to a tennis classroom. The director will monitor the conditions and play outdoors will resume when the all clear lightning signal is given. We are fortunate to have facilities which allow us to continue the camper's tennis education despite the inclement weather.
