Tennis Day Camp

Beginner and Intermediate, Kids aged 7 to 16

Every camper learns stroke basics, game strategy, footwork, sportsmanship and receives an ONEC day camp t-shirt. The camp is run in a safe and structured environment by responsible and mature tennis instructors.

ONEC’s day camps are a great way to get your child interested in tennis or to build on the skills they already possess. Campers are assessed on the first day and grouped according to level of play.

Even Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams don’t play tennis all the day long. At ONEC, we offer structured off-court activities that complement the tennis program every morning and afternoon. Activities include Frisbee golf, capture the flag, and other forms of active and quiet play.
