The Future Stars Tennis Camp (ages 6-15) is designed to challenge and engage players of all levels and abilities.

Each day, our expert coaches will run through a myriad of drills and instructional stations to build confidence and improve technique.

Through low camper to coach ratios, varied on and off court activities, and the finest pro staff, campers will not only come away as better players, but will develop a greater love and appreciation for the “sport of a lifetime”.

Oh, and don’t forget, we will have a blast while doing all of the above! All campers are carefully grouped by the tennis director based on skill level and age.

Director: Glenn Nathan is a fixture on the tennis courts of central Suffolk County.  Nobody knows the courts better than Glenn, and we are lucky to have him guide our program. 

Glenn was at the helm of both the women's and men's tennis programs at St. Joseph’s College for 13 years.  During his tenure, Glenn had 21 of his female players selected to Skyline All-Conference teams, accrued an impressive 100 victories, and won multiple Skyline Conference Championships. 

On the men’s side, Glenn was the first coach in SJC history to guide his teams to three consecutive NCAA tournament bids in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and the second coach in SJC history to win in the first round of the NCAA Tournament when the men beat Salve Regina in 2010.  His men’s teams won the Skyline Conferences titles in 2009 and 2010. They were undefeated in the Skyline conference with an impressive 21-0 record from 2008, 2009 and 2010. Coach Nathan is a three-time Skyline Conference Coach of the Year.

Currently, Glenn is the head coach of both the women’s and men’s teams at Suffolk County Community College. 

Glenn’s teaching experience is as vast as his coaching.  In the past, Coach Nathan was an assistant tennis pro at Miller Place Racquet Club, an associate instructor for Adelphi University tennis programs, head junior development summer program pro at Casino Country Club in Garden City, and an assistant tennis pro at Old Westbury Country Club.

Glenn and his wife Denise currently reside in Shirley. He is the proud father of three daughters.
