What are the drop-off and pick-up times?
The drop off times for camps is 11:30 and pick-up at 16:00. These must be adhered to as we are unable to provide childcare outside of these hours.
What should I wear?
Weather appropriate sports clothing, including trainers. Jumper and a jacket if its cold, sun cream and a hat if it’s hot, waterproof jacket if it’s wet. All sports shoes must be non-marking and no jeans are permitted.
What should I bring?
A tennis racket if you have one, if not, we can provide you with one.
Children will need to bring a packed lunch and a drink with them. Lunch is usually held at 13:15pm.
What happens on the day?
9:15-10:45: Children learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

What happens if it rains?
We are prepared for inclement weather, and will try and run the camps as long as it is viable and safe to do so. However if heavy rain is forecast all day, a decision will be made that morning as to whether the camp can go ahead. If it can not, you will receive a credit to attend another day at your convenience.
Do I have to be a member?
No! Telford Park’s Tennis Camps are available to all.
Who will be coaching me?
Our team of highly experience LTA licenced and accredited coaches. All of whom are CRB checked, high level players; including former county champions and players with previous world rankings.
What if I’m naughty?
Bad behaviour cannot be tolerated as it disrupts the learning and enjoyment of the other participants. In the event it occurs a warning will be given and if behaviour does not improve children will be asked to leave the camp without a refund.
