Summer Tennis Camps Offered in Newmarket

NEWMARKET, N.H., June 4, 2011 – Seacoast Sports Clubs-Great Bay (“SSC-Great Bay”) is offering summer tennis camps to begin June 27, 2011 and run through August 21, 2011. All camps will be held at the University of New Hampshire outdoor tennis courts. All rain outs will be moved to indoor courts at SSC-Great Bay.

Junior Academy Camp will be offered Monday-Wednesday-Friday from 9:00 am- 12:00 pm. The session includes a combination of live ball drills, games, and competitive play complete with instruction to provide the player with the tools needed to make the corrections. Back this up with the Junior Academy Match Play clinic offered Monday and Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 pm  for a full day of instruction. This clinic features match play with singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. All players who stay for the afternoon session will be assigned to one of two teams and these teams will compete against each other by playing head to head matches.

“This is a great transition out of the high school season and into technical instruction,” said Anthony Sillitta, Executive Tennis Director, Seacoast Sports Clubs. “Our teaching professionals work with players to point out the flaw, explain why it exists, and offer the steps to correct game changing deficiencies.”

SSC Great Bay is also offering three additional clinics designed for the younger players: Under 10 Development Tennis, Jr. Developmental Camp, and Granite State Kids.

The Under 10 Development Tennis clinic is considered the T-Ball and Instructional League of tennis for ages 4-9 yrs old. The kids are split into two age groups to practice on modified courts appropriate for their size and strength learning the fundamentals and strategies of full court tennis. This clinic will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00-11:00 am.

Also offered, Jr. Developmental Camp is for players who are above the U-10 age limit who have had some clinic and tennis experience but need a little more technical assistance with their game. This camp offers drills, instruction and technical coaching on how to hit all the shots required to play to tennis. Camp is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 -11:00 am immediately followed by an optional match play component from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.

Finally, Granite State kids is a traveling tournament team for ages 14 & under and 18 & under players of all levels. The team is coached by SSC-Great Bay head pro, Barry Caron and will practice weekly on Tuesdays from 1:00-4:00 pm. For a tryout, please call Coach Caron at 603-659-3151.
