Our Holidays Camps are great fun for any age from 4 up to 16 years. Our aim through the holidays camps is to provide a fun and safe environment where the children can develop their tennis skills and make new friends.
We provide all rackets and equipment (unless you have their own). Children need to bring a packed lunch (full day only), a drink, plenty of snacks, warm clothes, sun cream, a sun hat & a rain coat. It is ideal to bring a water bottle which can be refilled.
We will never cancel due to rain. We have fabulous indoor facilities where we can teach tennis strategy and game play for older children. We have a table tennis table, arts and crafts materials, puzzles and games.
The camps run for 2 weeks at Easter, May Half Term, 4 weeks throughout the summer and October Hlaf Term. We have a big group warm up each day where the children have chance to interact will all other children attending the camp. We then split the groups based on age and ability and each group will be look after by their coach. We have 7 courts so there is plenty of room to spread out.
There are lots of options for booking. You can either book:
Mornings 9am-12 noon
Full days 9am-4pm
All courses run from Tuesday – Thursday. You can book all 3 mornings/afternoons or full days or single morning/afternoons/full days but not on Thursdays as this is the day tournaments are played and the week builds up to this day. It is beneficial to book 3 consecutive days.
We also offer early drop off at 8am for £6 per day and laste pick up at 5pm for £6 per day.
All courses are run by our highly-qualified coaches, who are all DBS checked. Coaches will be supported by tennis assistants and leaders (training to be coaches) We aim for a ratio of 1 coach per 8 children.
Whilst our courses obviously focus on tennis, we also play some fun team sports including kwik cricket, volleyball, rounder’s and uni hoc.
For all dates, times and cost please select either Easter School to Summer School from the top menu.
