This summer we will be hosting our first tennis camp (July 29-August 2). We are offering a morning session (10:30 am - 12:30 pm) with the instructor to player ratio typically being 6:1.
The camp is for children 5-10 (the age cut off is July 29). The camp is intended to be an introduction to tennis. Children should have had little exposure to tennis or no more than 6 months of light instruction. The tennis camp is run by a tennis professional with over 30 years of experience and local high school tennis players will assist.
We ask that you meet in the lobby outside the gym Monday morning between 10:10 - 10:30 am for check-in, and then closer to 10:30 am the remaining days. We will have someone there to check in your children, as well as to answer any questions or requests that you may have. Please have your child wear shorts (no jeans please), a t-shirt, and either tennis or running shoes and bring a water bottle. Please also have your child bring a racket if they have one.
Lastly, if you know of any other families that may be interested in being a part of this camp, we would love to have them join us as well. Registration for both sessions will remain open until Sunday, July 28th at 11:59 pm, or until all spaces are filled. Registration is limited to the first 24 registrants.
We are looking forward to being able to work with your child for that week on tennis, as well as to be able to share with them the truth of God's Word!
The cost for the camps is $95.

By the end of the week the children will be participating in a tournament.
