Wilton Summer Junior Tennis Camp

Wilton Parks and Recreation


Camp is divided by age & ability: Red Ralliers; Orange Crush, Green Baseliners and Regular Adult balls! Each day of camp players are introduced to a different “stroke of the day” including the forehand, backhand, serve, and volley. This camp also offers an optional cross-training component to enhance players’ coordination and endurance. Off-court games such as hoccer, soccer, and dodge ball will be played. Match Play will be offered as an option in addition to field games. USTA 10 and under tennis Match Play, designed for the junior player, will be played on a modified court with tennis balls designed for their specific skill level. This provides players with an opportunity to play ‘real’ tennis and learn the rules of the games!
Campers should bring a nut-free snack each day.
Children will have over 2 ½ hours of on-court instruction each day.
Campers can also look forward to using inflatable waterslide each Thursday for morning camps. Prize day will be held once a week.
