Our holiday tennis camps in Oxford are mainly for children aged 8 to 15 years old. We can cater for all ability levels, from children keen to learn tennis through to capable young tennis players looking to further improve their game.
Our tennis camps run throughout the school holidays and take place at the Wychwood School’s tennis courts in Oxford. All of our camps operate Monday to Friday, with the option of a full day course (9.30am to 4.00pm) or a half day course (9.30 to 12.30pm).
We split our tennis camps into the following groups:
- Tots & Mini Tennis Red Ball - Children aged 4 to 5 years old (Only available for school groups)
- Junior Orange Ball – Children aged 6 to 9 years old
- Development Green Ball – Children aged 10 to 12 years old
- Teenage Camp Yelllow Ball – Children aged 13 to 16 years old

Camps run from 9.30 am-3.30 pm (full day) or 9.30 to 12.30 (half day) each day and players cover a new area of the game each day using our academy drills, match play exercises and group coaching sessions. Junior camps are split into either beginner/improvers or intermediate/advanced groups and all players have the chance to take part in a tournament at the end of the week with prizes for everyone taking part.
Development Course – Green ball (Ages 10 – 12 years)
The development camps are for older players who need to work seriously at an aspect of their game or who would like to try to achieve a new level of play over the course of a week of tennis tuition. All the exercises included have been specifically designed to maximise the time on court and players are asked to work hard throughout the week to achieve results. The development camps run for players from 9.30 am-3.30 (full day) or 9.30 am – 12.30 pm (half day) with two categories of groups – improver/intermediate and advanced/competing. Players will have a chance to experience match play throughout the week with all players asked to enter an official tournament at the end of the week with prizes for all those taking part.
Teenage Camp (Ages 13 – 15 years)
These courses are a little more “grown up” in content than our other courses, with players encouraged to work on their game, playing social and match play competitions (including improving their LTA rating) and making sure they have a good time and meet new like minded friends. All the exercises included have been specifically designed to maximise the time on court and players are asked to work hard throughout the week to achieve results. The teenage camps run from 9.30 pm-3.30 pm (full day) or 9.30 – 12.30 (half day) with two categories of groups – improver/intermediate and advanced/competing.
