Whilst we will be providing tuition on all aspects of the camp on the tennis camp, including technique, movement and conditioning, the specific focus of the camp this half term will be singles tactics including:

  • Serve and Return strategies, serve plus 1, return plus 1
  • Court Positioning and recovery positions
  • Recognising Defence (D), Neutral (N) and Attack (A) situations
  • Utilising your strengths 
  • Attacking weaknesses
  • Specific 'Plays'/ statistically winning patterns 

Holiday tennis camps provides a great opportunity for children to enjoy the school holidays whilst at the same time learning or improving at a great sport. The camp caters for all ages and abilities from 4 - 18 year olds and features players just starting out in tennis who may never have picked up a racket before to those playing in teams and LTA performance competitions. Children staying at the camp all day typically bring packed lunches and eat with the coaches on site. Afternoon sessions particuarly for younger children combine a greater variety of sports and children may also play football, cricket, tennis-cricket as well as tennis.

Holiday tennis camps offer children a great opportunity to learn tennis the best possible way, using the Sports Biometrics syllabus (the latest innovations in tennis learning techniques, tactics and movement) in a fun, engaging and practical manner. Children progress very quickly and make friends and have a great time.

Children are separated into several groups for different ages and abilities and rotate between tennis coaches (all of whom are LTA accredited meaning they are tennis qualified and working from the same syllabus, DBS certified, safeguarding trained, insured and first aid qualified). Children therefore get a broad spectrum of learning within single sessions and across a week.

Please note we are only able to take children aged 4 for mornings only.

Tennis camps must be booked in advance, booking will close the Friday before the camp is due to start on the Monday.
