The purpose of this camp is to teach tennis in a fun environment. Each camper is placed in a group appropriate to his or her skill level. We stress solid fundamental ground strokes, volleys and serves and especially PLAYING the game! Match play, drills and fitness are coordinated in each daily plan. Our goal is to teach the strategy of the game as well as the basic fundamental strokes. Our staff tailors instruction to each camper’s requirements with our low student/ teacher ratio. We offer at least 30 hours of tennis instruction per session plus off-court cross training activities.
This year we are offering a special "High Performance Camp" for High School age juniors who may have felt aged out. This session is open to all player age 14 and above. It will be June 30-July 2 at a reduced price.
