The Carleton Tennis Camp program has been designed by coach Tony Milo and will be taught by certified Tennis Canada coaches with many years of experience. The Tony Milo Tennis Academy will use the “Progressive Tennis” approach where tennis is scaled down to the appropriate size for younger players. At camp, players are on court 3 to 4 hours a day, and only in groups with players of the same skill level. When campers are not playing tennis, they will experience a variety of other sporting activities in conjunction with our popular holiday sports camp program. All activities will follow current COVID-19 safety protocols. A daily swim will also be provided (there will be no swim on December 31).

Campers are placed into smaller groups of similar ages (e.g Group A = 7 to 9 year olds, Group B = 10 to 12 year olds).

Please note that LUNCH IS NOT INCLUDED with the holiday tennis camp and therefore parents are asked to provide a nutritious packed lunch for their camper.
