Teenagers meet other young people from different backgrounds, sometimes already playing on the junior circuit, all with a common love of trying their best this learning this technique focussed sport. The principle of the “duel” which is at centre of tennis is very unifying: teenagers develop both the values of pushing their limits, and respecting their opponent.

When to do a juniors’ tennis camp?
A juniors’ tennis camp can in theory take place at any time of the year. The duration of this course can be adapted to the child’s interest. In general, a weekend is the preferred format for a taster session, while a full week is better for juniors already keen on the sport. School commitments have to be taken into account, so a weekend has the advantage of being accessible at any time of the year, while full weeks are easier to attend during school holidays for attendees enrolled in traditional schooling.
The winter period shouldn’t be discounted for a juniors’ tennis camp. Because Tennis is very invigorating, it is perfect for energizing the body during the colder season. This time of year usually puts a strain on the body, especially in adolescents, so a fall or winter camp is a good opportunity to push yourself to stay in shape until the sunny days return. Sport also promotes the production of endorphins and is an excellent weapon against the winter blues.
Spring and summer are fantastic for playing tennis, if only for the pleasure of playing outdoors in pleasant temperatures. Spring and summer are a must for any junior who wants to “knock about a few balls” under the bright sun.
