Juniors

Notes:

  • Pricing for the Junior Camp has changed. WTC News (both mailed and on the Forms page) has older (incorrect) pricing. Camp registration form and Juniors page are correct. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Camp registration, waiver and tournament forms are on our Forms page.
  • Membership rates for Juniors are shown on the Adults page.

In addition to open play (with membership), we offer private and group lessons for Juniors, a Junior Camp, and a Fall Junior Tournament.

Junior Camp
The WTC summer camp encourages players ages 5 to 16 years old, of all abilities, to learn proper tennis technique, have fun and be able to play the game with proper scoring and strategy. The camp will be run by Mitch Adler, our head tennis professional. Camp runs from Monday to Thursday, except for week 1 as noted, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM on the dates below. Fridays will be used for make up days in case of rain.

July 2-July 6 (includes Friday but not Wednesday this week as no camp on July 4th), then weekly Monday-Thursday through August 9.

Children should wear t-shirts, shorts and smooth bottom sneakers (no running shoes). Hats, sunglasses and sunblock are suggested.

Parents are responsible for the child’s lunch as we typically take a 20-minute break for lunch. Sports drinks are available in the clubhouse for a small charge, but there is always a big jug of ice water available for the kids free of charge.

The cost for the camp is $60.00 a day, per child or $220.00 for the 4 days. Children are encouraged to enroll in at least one entire “week” but it is not mandatory. Students are separated into groups by age and/or level of ability. Camp is limited to 24 children.

If it is raining, parents should call the club at 679-5900 after 9 AM to see if camp is cancelled. Cancelled days will be made up on Friday of that week. If there is more than one cancellation in a week, you will be given a credit to be used any remaining day of camp. For those not able to make up the day, you will be reimbursed for that day.

If the kids are already at the camp and it rains, these days will not be made up or reimbursed. We will keep the kids busy until 2 pm studying tennis strategy, rules, playing games or watching televised tennis matches.
