2014 Camp Information
(Camp Code: TNXRTM)
This year we are offering two weeks of day camp (9:00am-5:00pm) for players ages 8-18 of all skill levels.
The tennis program consists of five to six hours of daily instruction which includes technical work in the form of drills, strategy sessions, on-and-off court conditioning, supervised point and match play, mental toughness and game analysis. In addition to supervised free play, campers will receive special help sessions at night on forehand, backhand, serve and volley. The techniques and methods build confidence, while the group dynamics enable the students to get more done and have more fun.
Classes are programmed for three different proficiency levels: beginners, intermediates and advanced players — of all ages. Each student will be tested weekly and placed in a group of similar ability, and age so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. Beginners will be playing tennis in just a few days; intermediates will improve all aspects of their game; and advanced players will sharpen their game to a competitive edge.
Check In: 8:30am on Monday at the tennis courts
Check Out: 4:00 pm on Friday (early Check Out available if needed)
Campers play on 6 fully lighted courts.
Campers will dine at the University's large (19,000 square foot) dining hall with an eclectic mix of dining options. Lunch is included for Day Campers.
Designated Airport: Tampa International Airport
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature. They will be collected on the first day of camp.
The University of Tampa is a beautiful historic campus located right along the Hillsborough River and overlooks Downtown Tampa. Campers will play tennis at The University of Tampa Tennis Complex which features six fully lit courts with seating for the main three courts. The tennis complex is located on the west side of North Blvd. between the Bob Martinez Sports Center and the parking garage.
