Tennis Camp

Tennis Camp information and how to register

TennisCamp is a continuing program at CTC of tennis instruction encompassing 3 hours of customized drills, clinics and match play. It is aimed at school summer break male and female students from 4-17 years of age with working parents needing day care. 


It is a very competitively-priced program that can be combined with the afternoon sports-camp (a separate program and separate registration) to provide a full day of activities if needed.

The camp runs every morning for 9 a.m. to Noon for week-long sessions. Students sign up for one or more week-long sessions. They can even sign up for a month or both months. Accelerated skills acquisition is expected to be noticeable after a few days, providing motivation to succeed.  

 

Coaches initially assess playing levels then group students accordingly. Groups then perform drills, clinic-style activities and match play. All balls and ball machines are provided. Racquets can be borrowed, Tecnifibre (our primary sponsor) racquets can be purchased, or students can bring their own.

In a digital age of ubiquitous screens, children need to follow a dream. Our instructors are trained to help build confidence to aspire towards building strong tennis fundamentals. Thanks to our national tennis stars, there is strong public motivation. 


This program aims at building strong tennis fundamentals in ground strokes, serves, volleys and more. Through this immersive program - 5 days a week - students will acquire and maintain skills more quickly than other methods. Desire to succeed will be encouraged by our passionate TennisCamp coaches.

Tennis Lessons

Tennis Lessons information and how to register

Our Tennis Lessons program uses a progressive approach to tennis  instruction: 

  •  4-6 year olds use a mini-court  and small racquets and sponge balls (we call them Timbits)
  • 7-9 year olds use two thirds of  a full court, larger racquets, and low compression balls 
  • 10 and up use the full court  with full sized racquets and regular balls. 

Depending on age, time slots are arranged as follows:  

 

Time                                 Age                     Level   

09.00 am to 10.00 am   4 -  6 year olds. (Timbits)   

10.00 am to 11.30 am   7 -  9  year olds. Level 1   

11.30 am to 01.00 pm 10 - 13 year olds. Level 2   

01.00 pm to 02.30 pm 13 - 17 year olds. Level 3


Tennis Lessons has been the name behind the  Cambridge Tennis Club’s summer youth programs since 2000. Our mission is to  promote the sport of tennis in Cambridge, giving opportunities for growth at  all levels of play. We deliver a fast-paced, developmental program to children  aged 4-17 by providing a fun experience as they learn to play. 


In keeping with international tennis  instructional practices, we follow a progressive tennis teaching model whereby  our participants play on modified court sizes using various ball types (foam,  low-compression and regular) and racquet sizes based on their age and ability.
Our head coaches are Tennis Canada certified  and members of the Tennis Professionals Association. Further, we continually  strive to learn more about the delivery of tennis instruction by regularly  taking part in professional development and recertification seminars.


To encourage the development of  future coaches and leaders, we have selectively hired junior coaches* to  assist with our programming and expose them to the world of coaching. 

Since its  inception, Tennis Lessons has been able to maintain a well-priced program to fit  every family’s budget thanks to the support of the  City of Cambridge, and several local sponsors.
*Please contact James directly if your  child is interested in volunteering or working as a junior coach.

Sports Camp

Sports Camp information and how to register

Members and non-members engage in a variety  of fun athletic and game-based activities such as tennis, soccer and swimming. These  half day afternoon sessions run in eight one-week sessions in July and August, beginning  Tuesday, July 4 . They are typically combined with the TennisCamp to  allow  children to spend the whole day at the club. 

The program is designed to introduce basic  sports skills in a way that instills sportsmanship and friendship. Our coaches  are trained in providing everybody—boys and girls alike—with a positive and  enjoyable experience.  In the afternoon,  campers will visit the Kinsmen Soper Park Pool for a recreational swim followed  by soccer, table tennis, and traditional camp activities. Tennis is always  available.

Sessions are limited to a maximum of 24  participants, resulting in a 6:1 student-to-instructor ratio. Programs are conducted rain or shine. Campers  registered for both the TennisCamp and Sports Camp are expected to bring  their own lunch. NO NUTS PLEASE.
