Tennis Camp  

We believe tennis is one of the greatest sports out there...one that can be played for a lifetime! If your child shows any interest at all, our camp presents a perfect opportunity for he/she to build on their aptitude and gain confidence.

The St. Albans Tennis Camp offers a fun, high-quality instruction program to participants of varying ages and abilities. Our tennis instructors will focus on teaching tennis techniques and strategies, building strength and endurance, improving agility, and enhancing players’ coordination and speed. Players will also work on improving their mental toughness. Our coaches will use various teaching techniques, such as one-on-one feedback, video analysis, and special drills.

As soon as our campers arrive, they will be greeted with enthusiasm and positive energy ready to take on the day. Campers will be evaluated and divided into different groups based on previous tennis experience and age, assuring that each performance level receives the most appropriate and effective coaching.  Instruction will be available throughout the camp day, even though in the PM session, opportunities to play matches or focus on game play (for suitable players) is a focus. We encourage our campers to sign up for multiple weeks to increase their opportunities to improve their tennis skills.
