Our Holiday Tennis Camps are great fun for the kids and an awesome way to enjoy their holiday school break.  Our Holiday Tennis Camps are open to the public and offer an opportunity for participants to sharpen their tennis game.

Because Christmas Day is on Tuesday, this year we will only be able to offer one 3 day camp from Wednesday December 26 thru Friday December 28th.

Cost is $75.00 for 3 day camp. ( 2 hours each day)  Daily/Drop-In rate is $28.00 subject to space availability.

Emphasis is placed on fun with the younger players but they will receive stroke instruction. We are a teaching facility so we focus on stroke mechanics, drilling, and live ball play instruction. Our instructors are all experienced certified teaching professionals.  We will also have quality support staff on court as well to assure optimal player/instructor ratios.

Players will be placed on court with the nearest level of skill. We reserve the right to reassign players to another group or time slot based on skill level. Each time slot has a limited number of players that we can accommodate. Pre-registered players will have priority placement.
