Markham Tennis Club Summer Camps
Ages 5 to 18 years old
Monday through Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Summer Camp at Markham Tennis Club provides a fun, inclusive and safe experience for beginner-advanced level players. Experienced, knowledgeable and outgoing instructors create an atmosphere that ensures a complete satisfaction of all participants involved. Our goal is to develop basic tennis fundamentals through on court drills, games and activities. Participants are split up by age and ability to allow for a focused learning environment. Progressive balls and mini nets are used for our younger campers to ensure they get a valuable learning experience, while regular balls/green dots are used for our older participants who will focus on the point play aspect of the game and how to build a point. Developing and enhancing proper tennis fundamentals will be the focus of our camp.
