Summer Tennis Camp for Young Beginners!

SHAC’s Joe Behson, a USTA and USPTA Developmental Tennis Coach, along with a group of teenage Averill Park tennis players, will lead a summer tennis camp for young beginners July 10th-July 20th, Monday-Thursday each week from 9am-12:30pm. 

The camp will include a variety of fun, group learning activities geared towards elementary school children (ages 8-12). Enrolled students will learn key tennis concepts, such as the rules of the game while also developing proper racquet handling skills such as the forehand, backhand, return of serve, and volley as well. Understanding the fundamentals of tennis by working together and demonstrating good sportsmanship will be greatly encouraged.

The tennis camp will take place at the Averill Park High School Tennis courts (located on the right side of the school towards the back). In the event of inclement weather, the camp will be held at the indoor court inside the SHAC Center at 27 Lake Avenue, Averill Park, NY.

Campers should bring snacks and chilled water with them daily. All campers will receive a SHAC Tennis Camp tee shirt.

* Note: Players of this age will progress best with junior tennis racquets. Junior racquets are shorter, lighter, and have smaller grip sizes ideally suited for children. Adult racquets are often difficult for elementary school children to handle. Parents are encouraged to provide junior racquets but instructor will have a number of junior racquets available for player use if that is necessary.
