One Camp, Two Curricula to Choose from in 2016!!

Whether you're a beginner or USTA Tournament Player, we have a camp for you! 
Which camp fits your needs? You pick!


This curriculum is for beginning, intermediate and typical high school players. There will be a strong emphasis on correcting grips,  stroke patterns and footwork. Players will be separated by ability level and age. Singles strategy, doubles strategy, and tennis exercises will be covered. The emphasis for the campers will be on stroke correction and development.

USTA Tournament Camp

This is a pre-tournament curriculum for campers who play their district qualifier and qualify for the Midwest Closed. Campers who fail to qualify, but are also USTA Tournament level, will be given the option of joining this intense training program. Our camp is perfectly situated between all the different Team Cup matches being held and the Midwest Closed. We will prorate the cost of camp by a half day for those that have to show up late or leave early because of these events. Unless asked, we will make no major stroke or grip corrections with this group. We assume that these campers all have private coaches back home.

Our goal is to prepare these players for tournament play. Our coaches have coached at seven different NCAA Division I colleges. Between them, they have prepared more than 300 players for the NCAA Championships. We will drill, play matches with other campers and our college players, talk advanced strategy and emphasize mental preparation and awareness.

We will also have a college recruiting seminar. Learn from IU Head Coach Lin Loring, the winningest coach in Division I tennis history. Topics will include: NCAA recruiting rules, the college recruiting process, the difference between NCAA Division I, II and III and how to find a college tennis scholarship to match your ability and ranking.

Just a reminder, Indiana Tennis Campers stay in an air-conditioned sorority house across the street from the Varsity Tennis Courts. We also have fun evening activities that are well supervised and include swimming/water slides at Bryan Park Pool, movies at the College Hall and bowling at the Indiana Memorial Union.

Register on-line now to take advantage of this great program. If you have additional questions E-Mail Coach Loring.

We hope to see you in camp!

Lin Loring



Lin Loring
Head Women's Tennis Coach, Indiana University

In his 39 years at Indiana, Lin Loring has been the most successful women's collegiate tennis coach in Midwest history. The 1982 and 1992 National Coach of the Year has produced one national team title, two national singles titles, one national doubles title, 18 All-Americans, and 17 consecutive top 20 finishes. The Hoosiers were undefeated in the Big Ten from May 1978 to May 1985, winning 104 consecutive Big Ten matches. Loring's teams have won 16 Big Ten titles. In 1991 he appeared in Sports Illustrated when he became the first NCAA Division I women's coach in history to record 400 career wins. On Jan. 31, 2014, he became the first coach to record 800 career wins, and his career mark is 831-321 entering the 2015-16 season.

Ramiro Azcui
Associate Head Women's Tennis Coach, Indiana University

Now in his 24th season at Indiana, associate head coach Ramiro Azcui is a vital part of the women's tennis program. An accomplished tennis player in college and a two-time Men's and Women's Coach of the Year at Northeast Missouri State (now Truman State), Azcui joined the IU coaching staff in 1992. Since moving to Indiana, Azcui has helped the Hoosiers win five Big Ten titles. He has been acknowledged for his coaching, winning the Midwest Assistant Coach of the Year Award in 1997, 1999 and 2004. Also in 2004 he was awarded the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year.


head men's and WOMEN'S TENNIS COACH, hanover COLLEGE

A former volunteer assistant on Coach Loring's staff, Miller is in his second year as the head men's and women's tennis coach at Hanover College. He made an immediate impact in 2014-15, earning Heartland Conference Coach of the Year honors after leading the women's team to the HCAC regular season and tournament championships. A native of Washington, Ind., Miller enjoyed two stints on the IU coaching staff as a volunteer assistant (2012 and 2014). Miller's instructional background also includes four years on the staff at the IU Tennis Center and two years as the head professional at the Jasper (Ind.) Tennis Club. Miller is a United States Professional Tennis Association certified instructor who earned all-state honors three times as a high school standout at Washington (Ind.) H.S. 



In early August of 2015, EIU athletics announced the hiring of Sam Kercheval as head tennis coach over the Panther men's program. A native of Bloomington, Indiana, Kercheval comes to Eastern following a one year stint as the volunteer coach with the Indiana men's tennis squad, having joined the program prior to the fall, 2014 season. He previously was the girl's head coach of the Bloomington High School South tennis unit from 2011 to 2015, where in just four seasons he tallied a 69-30 overall record and annually led the squad among the Top 15 rankings in the state, including a Final Four apperance at the Indiana State Team Tournament. He coached BHSS's #1 singles player, Denise Azcui, to a pair of Indiana High School State singles championships. Kercheval taught at the Indiana University Tennis Center as the Adult Program Coordinator, having spent the last eight years with the IUTC. He directed all clinics, leagues, tournaments and programming for the adult members as well as worked with junior players.

Additional Teaching Staff

In addition to the college coaches, remaining camp staff includes USPTA and PTR certified teaching professionals and many Division I players. While NCAA rules prevent us from listing our college staff, most of last year's college players will be returning.



The camp will use the ten Indiana University Varsity Tennis Courts. In case of rain the camp will use the adjacent Indiana University Tennis Center.


Players will be housed at the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house located a short walk from the tennis complex. The house will provide the campers with a superior living environment to regular school dormitories. There will be more room, more privacy and better 24 hour supervision by the tennis staff. Meals are served three times a day. Campers who request a specific roommate will be placed with that camper. Please be sure that both girls request each other when they register.

Campers who do not request a roommate will be placed with someone close to their age. Last year about 40% of the campers did not have a roommate request.

The majority of the sorority house rooms are doubles, but some triples and quads are available. Please know that if a triple or quad is requested, we cannot guarantee that one will be available.


A certified athletic trainer will be in attendance to care for minor injuries and attend to all athletic training needs. I.U. Health Center services will also be available to each camper on a fee for service basis. Parents must complete the consent form on the linked page with the application.


Campers will have the option of using IU's Olympic-size outdoor pool in the afternoons when they are not on the court. It is well supervised for recreational swimming.

We do not offer a commuter rate during early registration because we do not save any money if a camper does not spend the night. Three weeks before the start of camp, if we are not full, we will have a commuter rate of $620 for new campers. No discounts apply. Returning day campers may sign up anytime for the $620 rate.  

Returning campers receive a $30 discount if they register before May 1, 2016. In addition, new campers receive a $30 discount if they sign up with a group of two or more before May 1, 2016. If you use the group discount you must indicate the names of the campers you are signing up with during the registration process.

The woodland campus of Indiana University at Bloomington situated in the picturesque rolling hills of southern Indiana, is the site for the Hoosier Tennis Camp. Located one hour south of Indianapolis, Bloomington is easily accessible by highway, air and bus.


Transportation to and from the tennis camp is the responsibility of the parents. If given at least one week's notice the staff will pick up players at the bus depot or Bloomington Shuttle airport drop-off locations.


Parents may be assured that all players receive 24 hours a day supervision. We make every effort to provide a program where campers will have fun while learning. We reserve the right to send any camper home, without a refund, if he or she does not conduct themselves in a manner that will enhance proper and safe learning, good sportsmanship and a willingness to follow directions.
