Holiday Tennis Camps
Our holiday tennis camps are a fun activity for kids in the school holidays and also provide childcare for working parents.
Passionate about sharing our love for tennis our goal is to teach the game in a fun environment. Aimed at children aged 4-15 years the days are designed to be fun for both beginners and more advanced players. Children are divided into groups depending on age and ability to encourage confidence.
Early booking is advised but you can also book on last minute if there are spaces available.
We never cancel and play whatever the weather so please bring either raincoats and warm clothes or sun hats and sun cream, depending on the forecast! We ask that children wear trainers please.

Holiday Tennis Camps
Our Holiday Tennis Camps are coached with plenty of fun so children learn to love the sport of tennis.
We are running some fun holiday camps children aged 4 years to 12 years old from Monday 18 December to Thursday 21 December between 9am – 2pm. If the courts are a bit icy first thing, we will do fun tennis and Christmas activities inside to start. Cost is £25 per day or £90 for the four days.
These camps will be coached sessions, where children will be learning correct technique but also learning the reading/tracking skills needed to have a rally and play tennis.
We will have lots of Christmas themes to our drills and games as well. All children will be given a hot chocolate to warm them up at break or lunch (please let us know if you’d rather your child didn’t). We look forward to seeing everyone in the Christmas break.
Holiday camps for ages 4 years to 12 years olds will run between 9am and 2pm.
We offer a 10% sibling discount. This can be applied if your children are in the same age group or if they are in different age groups please email Elly.
Please ensure your child has plenty of water and a small packed lunch. Don’t forget to bring raincoats and waterproof trousers if the weather isn’t so great.
