Mornings consist of drilling, point play, conditioning and off court fun. Afternoons will focus on match play and other fun competitive games.
All sessions are open to players of all abilities. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
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 8:00am-8:15am for all campers at the GW Tennis Center (5 min yellow zone). Campers should come dressed to play as we will head straight to the courts after check-in.
Monday-Friday: Daily check out is at 11:30am for Half Day Campers and at 3:00pm for Full Day Campers at the GW Tennis Center.
Campers will play at the 11-court outdoor tennis courts at the George Washington (GW) Tennis Center.
Full day campers should bring their own lunch. We will break for lunch after the morning session and then have the option to swim before the afternoon session starts.
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.

better signage directing us to camp
July 1, 2016: It would help if the camp entrance was marked with a Nike sign or something like that. The first day was a little confusing as to where to take the kids.
