All Skills Program
The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background and includes concentrated work to develop the proper fundamentals and a mix of drilling and match play.
10 and Under Tennis
10&Under Tennis is an exciting 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.
Monday-Friday: Drop off is at 8:45am for all campers at the Bulldog Tennis Complex. Campers should come dressed to play as we will head straight to the courts after check-in.
