ADK Landsports: Tennis
At tennis summer camps, players hone their tennis skills as they practice service and volleys through a mix of technical instruction, drills and group games. Beginner tennis players will learn the fundamentals: rules and positions, proper etiquette and attire, and how to effectively handle the racquet. Intermediate players practice these skills on one another in singles and in pairs under the watchful eye of counselors assisting and coaching as they play. Advanced players further their knowledge and comfort level with the sport as they face off in more sophisticated competitions with each other, during Blue/White matches and in inter-camp competitions.
Centrally located, the summer camp tennis courts are always buzzing with impromptu games during free times and evenings. Our camp counselors initiated an annual tennis camp for kids tournament, called the Patrik Memorial Camper-Staff Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament, that rivals our famed World Cup soccer games in popularity! Tennis is a classic kid camp sport that combines power, athleticism, finesse and thought; and it is enjoyed by campers of all ages and skill levels.
