Tennis Specialty

The Hofstra Tennis specialty can accommodate children of all levels of play. On the first day of camp, each child is evaluated – based on his or her ability – and placed into the appropriate group. No child is locked into a skill group; if a child’s skills progress, he or she will be moved to a more advanced group.

For youngsters just beginning tennis, we introduce them to it with the New USTA program called “Net Generation”. This program not only teaches them the basics of tennis using tennis equipment in a scaled down version to fit their smaller size, it also has a character-building component that builds confidence, respect, responsibility, cooperation and much more. A smaller court, a shorter racket, less pressurized balls, are some of the things used to help them master the sport. For more advanced players, we offer traditional equipment and instruction based on the individual level of the child. All aspects of tennis are introduced and taught, all scoring, strokes and strategy, and all in a fun and entertaining way!



Note: There is a $50 surcharge per session for additional materials and staff requirements.

Schedule: Half the day consists of Tennis. For the other half of the day, your child is placed in a recreation group of 8-10 campers in of the same grade and gender where all campers enjoy lunch, instructional swim and recreational sports.

Elite Tennis

Hofstra University Summer Camps is now offering a new addition to our Specialty Tennis Program. The Elite Tennis Program will be a full day tennis program for experienced players who are entering 6th through 10th grade.

In the morning campers will participate in supervised practice and competition, while the afternoon will consist of learning new skills and strategies, as well as drills and specific games to enhance the camper’s full tennis skill set.

Admission to this program is selective, campers will be interviewed by the tennis directors to assess if this is the right program for them!

Contact the camp office for more information or to speak with our tennis directors.
