About the Camps
The Bobcat Tennis Camps will feature group instruction from Central coaches and former players. Matt Rutherford, the lead camp instructor, has headed up the Central tennis program for the past decade.
For Group and/or Private lessons outside of the camp structure contact Coach Rutherford.
We will strive to have a healthy student to teacher ratio. Early registration helps us to manage numbers and employ the proper number of instructors. We strive to make this a valuable experience for the players.
Tennis camps do not solve all of the tennis players’ problems nor do they make “an instant tennis player”. Camps are one important and fun element in the development of a tennis player. Although we focus on different parts of the game in each camp, the ultimate goal is improvement through repetition or competition. Students need to be ready and willing to step out of their comfort zone.
By teaching a kid to play tennis you have given them a gift for life. A tennis player can remain active in the sport for decades. Players can still compete at a high level whether they are 35 or 65. Tennis is the sport of a lifetime.
We are extremely fortunate to use our brand new tennis facility for our camps. We ask that everyone treat the facility with respect and keep it trash free.
Wear court or tennis shoes. Please no gum or soft drinks.
