Tennis players from all over the country are in West Lafayette for the All Comers National Wheelchair Tennis Camp.
This year marks the 4th time Purdue Schwartz Tennis Center has hosted the camp. The tennis camp happens in different states across the U.S. but Schwartz Tennis Center hosts the only one in the midwest.
The camp includes learning from top instructors and professionals in the United States Tennis Association. Jarrod Ostachuk, a first time tennis camper said he's learning so much and having fun while doing it.
“I'm learning a lot of technique, climbing the ladders, doing different tournaments and really at this point, just having a lot of fun,” said Ostachuk.
Ostachuk said it's challenging but just like any sport, once you get the hang of it, things fall in line.
Jason Allen, USTA Wheelchair Tennis Manager travels to across the country to coach camper. He said he enjoys his job.
“I love these guys, love them with all my heart. Some of the greatest people I've ever met in my life. I'm very pleased to see them improving and progressing, as well as just having a great time,” said Allen.
West Lafayette was the last stop for the USTA sponsored Tennis camp for the year. The camp welcomes all age groups and skill levels.
