2014 Camp Information

(Camp Code: TNXRGC)
This year we are offering two weeks of overnight and day camp (8:45am-4:15pm) for ages 9-18. All meals are included for overnight campers. Lunch is included for all day campers.

We are also offering an additional eight weeks of day camp only (8:45am-4:15pm) for ages 9-18. Lunch is included for all day campers.

 Dartfish video analysis will be used during the camp to analyze and improve your strokes and is provided at no extra charge for all campers.  See your strokes compared to a top playing professional!  Your Dartfish Mediabook will be posted to a private player locker on and reviewed with you by the staff at camp (click here for an example). The package includes:

  • Stroke Analysis:  Your Dartfish Mediabook contains videos of your strokes, plus side-by-side comparison with a pro, along with comments. 
  • Pro Stroke Library: Three months of access to Pro Stroke Library, featuring hundreds of strokes in both real and high speed.
  • Camp highlights video*: This video of camp activities and friends all set to music will be something  everyone will want to have and keep forever. (*Only offered at participating locations.)

Camp Levels of Play
All Skills Program: 
Classes are programmed for three different proficiency levels: beginners, intermediates and advanced players . 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.

Tournament Training Program: 
In addition to the general camp sessions, this year we are offering a seperate tournament training program during all weeks of camp. The tournament training program is geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness. Make sure to note that you would like to participate in these programs when you register.

10 and Under Tennis:
In addition, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” program during the Day Camp Only weeks for kids ages 9-10, 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.
