SWING & SWIM®

*For the 2020 Camp Season, Tennis will be in the new Minuteman Gymnasium.

Founded in 1993, the Tennis School offers the SWING & SWIM® program for girls and boys 6 to 10 years old, who are interested in developing their tennis skills. Flexible enrollment options include one week sessions with a full day or half-day option. Based on availability, campers can also enroll in half-day service for single days.

A Typical Day

The day begins at 9:00 am with 75 minutes of high quality tennis instruction by our knowledgeable and energetic coaching staff under the leadership of Joe Gallo, USPTA Tennis Teaching Professional. A brief snack time is scheduled for 10:30 am (please pack a snack and drink). After snack, the morning program continues with tennis activities, including lead up games and supervised match play. The players enjoy a free swim which is staffed with lifeguards. At 12:15 pm, players participating in the half-day program are dismissed to their respective parent(s)/guardian(s). Tennis players who enroll in the full-day program participate in the day camp afternoon schedule, including free choice activities. Campers choose between a physical or non-physical activity (arts and crafts); the free choice activities change each day.

Please note the Tennis School can provide a tennis racket for your child if you don’t own one already. Or, one of our tennis experts can properly access your child’s racket size and offer a racket available for purchase through the Summer’s Edge camp store. Please let us know of your needs and preferences before your player’s session begins.

Extended day services are available for an additional cost.
