Tennis Day Camps
Beginner and Intermediate, Kids aged 7 to 17
Every camper learns stroke basics, game strategy, footwork, sportsmanship and receives an ONEC day camp tshirt. 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.
ONEC’s central hub is the tennis pavilion, which is located on Tennis Crescent, south of the parkway. Tennis campers are dropped off at the "Tennis Circle" on Tennis Crescent, next to the parking lot.
The Clubhouse has washrooms with showers inside, along with a small canteen for lunchtime treats. Outside is a grassy yard with picnic tables.
Wrapping around the pavilion are the tennis courts, and across the road is the beautiful boathouse where sailing kayaking and rowing camps take place. Unfortunately, the Boathouse will not be in use this Summer 2023 as it remains under construction. However, all water-sport camps will take place from the shore, east of the Boathouse.
Instruction and Philosophy
Topics covered during a regularly scheduled week include:
Game situation, tactics, and strategies as well as the fundamental strokes
The Ottawa New Edinburgh Club introduces the game of tennis to children in a fun and exciting environment with an emphasis on fun and skill development.
The basics of tennis will all be covered. These fundamentals will be shown to the student in a progressive manner to ensure that the child develops at a pace suited to their ability. This will allow room for maximum improvement in the time allotted.goals include an improvement of tennis skill as well as a greater understanding and enjoyment of the game.
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.
