Camp Details

Program
(Camp Code: TNXDUP)

This summer we are offering one week of Junior day camp (9:00am-4:00pm) for kids ages 6-18 of all skill levels.

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” 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. For more information on “10 and Under Tennis” programs nationwide, Click Here to check out the USTA website.
