Tennis Camp Anyone?
Tennis has been called the “Sport for a Lifetime” since it can be enjoyed from one’s youth throughout life into the senior years. It has wonderful cardiovascular benefits and is a great social outlet as well. Tennis can be a good choice for kids who might enjoy an individual sports over a team sport. You don’t have to belong to a fancy club to play tennis. Many local recreation centers and parks have courts available for low or no fees.
Summer camp can be a great way to introduce your child to tennis, or improve their skill level. There are camps that focus just on tennis, and others that incorporate it as part of a broader camp experience. Take a look at these Bay Area tennis camp options listed at SignUpForCamp.com.
