2014 Camp Information
(Camp Code: TNXDCV)
This year we are offering seven weeks of day (9:00am-3:00pm) and half day camp (9:00am-11:45am) for ages 7-18 of all skill levels. Full Day Campers should bring their own lunch. (Half day camp ends before lunch).
10 and Under Tennis:
In addition, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” program, featuring the USTA’s successful new teaching format. This is an exciting new way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts. We will have full set up (court sizes, nets and various ball types) for 12 and under tennis, 10 and under tennis, and 8 and under tennis so that all ages can play in the correct format!
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
