2014 Camp Information
(Camp Code: TNXDLL)
This year we are offering four weeks of junior day camp. Each week, campers can choose between Full Day (9:00am-4:00pm) or Half Day morning (9:00am-12:00 noon) camp options. These camps are ideally suited for all levels and ages 5-18.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
10 and Under Tennis:
In addition to the "All Skills" program, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” (Half Day Camp) 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.
