Junior Summer Camps
The Oglebay Junior Tennis Summer Fun Camps are designed for Elementary, Middle and High School ages of all skill levels. Each camp will run Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily.

The summer camps will feature on-court professional instructions in a fun environment under the direction of USPTA and PTR Professional Marc White. Each participant will learn the fundamentals of tennis, with game base drills and modern day stroke production, along with exciting, new USTA tennis games. Each camp will also include the Director's Tip of the Day. All this helps participants improve fast and have fun, to provide a tennis experience of a lifetime! Sportsmanship, tennis etiquette and teamwork will also be emphasized in all camps.

The cost is $125.00 per child for the 4-day tennis camp, which includes 10 hours of instruction, free use of demo rackets and camp graduation party. Clinic times may be adjusted and our indoor tennis bubble at Wheeling Park may be used in the event of inclement weather.
