TennisMajors

Whether a beginner, intermediate, or advance level tennis player, our tennis major is designed to take each campers skills to the next level. Campers will have two periods of tennis each day, focusing on proper swing form and mechanics, footwork, match play strategy, and live-ball drills in the morning. In the afternoon, campers will enjoy individual and team instruction sessions, combined with many games designed to compliment the drill work.
Over the course of 3 weeks, our campers will not only see significant progress in their all-round tennis game, but find themselves having lots of FUN and wanting to continue their training in tennis.

Our teaching professional and college tennis players will provide instruction tailored to each ability level, making sure the campers are challenged and achieving their goals.
