Junior Camps

Led by certified and passionate coaches with First Aid training, our junior summer camps run throughout the summer with an emphasis on progressively learning the game in accordance with ITF and Tennis Canada guidelines; this method uses modified court sizes, tennis balls and racquets to allow players to succeed early and develop a lifelong love of the game, whether recreational or more advanced.
