“Andy and Jimmy Paley know as much about tennis as anyone I’ve ever worked with. Not only are they great players themselves, but because of their hard work in coaching, they have turned a lot of kids, including myself, into great players.”

4-Time Wisconsin Girls High School State Champ
“I visited Paley Camp last summer, it has been a great experience, as I've grown up as a tennis player and as a human being. Andy and Jim have been more than trainers: they have been my friends, my counselors, and my guides. They have showed me the way american people think about tennis. People in the camp, were so good to me!! Boys and girls of all ages.... I've made sincere friendships. I hope to come back next year, and share with them my year's experience in Spain.”
- Chema Martín de Oliva,
Currently 2nd ranked junior boy in Spain
“Have been the best two weeks of the summer, I am very happy, I have learned many things. I think it's always good to know different "cultures of tennis." I got a lot of positives from this trip, the people are charming at Paley Tennis Camp. I hope to have a chance to go again.”
- Juan Pablo Canas Garcia

“Being a tennis instructor at Paley Tennis Camp has been an enriching experience for me. I am proud to be part of the best summer in the lives of many of the participants in the camp. Although we are now in Europe, part of us remains in Fredonia, confident that the friendships that have been forged during those weeks will last many years."
