Day and overnight camps

Upon arrival at camp each player is observed so that players of similar levels are grouped together. Each group of students is assigned to an instructor who will work with the group as a whole and also with each individual. In this way, the player benefits from his individual coaching and also from general comments made to other players in his group.

During the week campers receive the following:

  • five to six hours of daily instruction on the courts
