The Westfield Tennis Club’s Tennis Camp, now in its 51st year, is proud to invite campers aged 8 to 16 to the Club for another exciting summer of tennis! Led by director Frank Geiger as well as a cadre of dedicated, experienced coaches, our summer camp—with both four- and eight-week options—is fun, challenging, and an excellent value. While your child has fun learning to play this lifelong sport, he or she will improve hand-eye coordination, balance, speed, strength, flexibility, and agility. Our staff works hard to connect with each individual camper while promoting the value of sportsmanship, physical fitness, personal discipline, work ethic, and mental strength. As your child develops a relationship with tennis, he or she will grow as an individual, and learn many life skills that will prove valuable on and off the court.
Each camper should bring a bagged lunch and large water bottle (we will have cold water and ice available throughout the day so that campers can refill their bottles).
Camp Schedule and Details:
Campers will participate in supervised instructional play Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Morning lessons coupled with open-court access, transition to more intensive afternoon lessons as well as competitive play.
9:30 am to 12:30 pm: Small groups of campers, grouped by age and ability, will each participate in hour-long lessons during the morning hours. Lessons get more complex and challenging as camp progresses. While not receiving group instruction, campers will have access to the courts to play matches or practice skills. They can also choose to play ping-pong, cards, or nok hockey.
12:30 pm to 1:30 pm: Campers break for lunch on the patio, where they can relax, eat, and rehydrate while supervised by our coaching staff.
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm: Each afternoon consists of ladder and team matches, drills, exhibition matches, athletic training, mini-lessons, and strategy. High-intensity instruction will be provided for more advanced players. As with the morning session, players remain grouped according to age and ability to ensure each camper enjoys an appropriately competitive learning environment.
Campers who sign up for the full eight weeks will also get to participate in an end-of-summer, camp-wide tournament where they will get the chance to compete against other campers!
