This tennis program is designed for campers of any skill level, ages 10-17. Our tennis coaches are experienced in coaching players of all ages, language levels and abilities.

Working on a 1:6 ratio coaches will use demonstration, practice and detailed feedback, including video analysis, to provide players with insight into their technique and how to improve. Alongside short-set matches and challenges, fitness and conditioning drills are used to improve footwork, balance and speed.
