Peter Howell Tennis Camps

at Oglethorpe University
Atlanta, Georgia
returns for its Seventeenth Year


The health and safety of campers is our primary focus. Our summer 2020 camps are currently scheduled to proceed as planned. Like you, we are continually monitoring COVID-19 developments. If it is determined that our camps should be canceled, we will issue campers a full refund within 48 hours of cancellation (minus card processing/convenience fees).

As an added safeguard our event offers Allianz Registration Protection insurance. For an additional fee, this insurance refunds your full registration fee if camp is held but you cannot attend or must leave early due to a covered injury or illness which includes COVID-19. Details can be found here.

In 2020 we will be offering 6 weeks of our fabulous tennis camp sessions.

Our Mission is to instill the joy of playing tennis in children, as well as teaching the "Life Lessons" tennis lends itself to.

Our focus being on teaching the children to actually PLAY tennis -to serve, keep score,
call the balls correctly, and to both win and lose graciously.

For the more advanced children, our focus is on raising their entire game,
to become a more ‘all-court’ player, from strategy and technique to footwork and ball positioning.

Each camper is placed in a station (group) appropriate to his or her skill level from beginner to intermediate and advanced. 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 done in a fun environment. Our staff tailors instruction to each camper's abilities with our low student/ teacher ratio. We offer at least 30 hours of tennis instruction per session plus off-court cross training activities.

Moving into our 17th year… We look forward to seeing returning and new campers in 2020.
