Summer Tennis Camps 2013

Tennis camps differ drastically from each other. For a great experience that matches personal tastes and objectives, you need to talk with your child about the type of camp to choose. Decide on a camp that fits to the child’s gaming levels. Newbies and intermediates concentrate on fundamentals, while advanced people go into the ideal elements of the game. The INTENSITY and Levels of Play are really important in junior tennis camps. Will your child be happy to commit 6 hrs a day on the court? You’ll need to assess if it would be more suitable to mix tennis with other activities.
