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.
