Camp Program Offerings
All sessions are open to players of all skill levels, unless otherwise noted. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own tennis instruction needs can be addressed throughout the week.
Geared towards all ability levels. Includes concentrated work to develop the proper fundamentals and a mix of drilling and match play.
10 and Under Tennis
The“10 and Under Tennis” program features the USTA’s successful new teaching format. This 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.
All campers check in on Monday at 8:45am at the Pro Shop.

Coaches were welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable
July 21, 2018: The coaches were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Diversity in skill levels allow for challenges to advance her abilities and also provided opportunities to mentor younger players. Many kids her age allow to build friendships. Lastly the warm up was outstanding. We traveled three hours to St. Louis to attend this camp would like to see this camp provided in the city of Springfield Missouri.
