We hope this positive experience will keep your child and family loving and playing tennis for a lifetime.

2019 Camp Highlights

 

“The 2018 Program of the Year by the Georgia Professional Tennis Association”

…where serious fun, serious improvement, and serious energy meet!

An Agape Tennis Camp will cover all aspects and skills of the game in a fun and rewarding environment. Each camp is uniquely run based on the type of camp: Agape, Quickstart or Elite.  On the first day campers are evaluated on the courts and placed into smaller groups based on their age and ability.  In the Agape and Elite camp players will get up to 20 hours of tennis instruction and play per week- including a combination of drills, match play, strategy sessions, along with a flighted tournament each week. Our camps are perfect for the new, developing, or accomplished player. Details on the different types of camps are below. Each camper will receive a camp tee shirt, award, and player party on the final day.  This year we are offering “Continued Camp” from 4:00-5:30PM for parents who need a later pick up.  All camps are located at DeKalb Tennis Center.
