Middle School Tennis Camp

This program is a terrific introduction for middle school students who are interested in learning the basics of tennis. Instructors will go over the fundamentals of tennis focusing on basic stroke development including forehands, backhands, volleys, and serves. No prior experience is necessary, and racquets will be provided if you do not have one, however we encourage participants to bring their own. Camp will run September 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 from 3:30-4:30 pm
