St. Peter’s Grand Slam Tennis Program

The summer tennis camps offered through the St. Peter’s Grand Slam Tennis Programs are fun, yet challenging and instructional and cater to boys and girls ages 8 - 18 at all skill levels. Our camps are taught by certified teaching pro’s & college tennis players with Foreside Fitness & Tennis as our indoor backup if it rains. Former tennis players from our camps have gone on to play tennis at Harvard, Wheaton, Colby, Penn State, and many other Div. 1, 2 &3 schools. For the beginner, a progressive format is followed. Each session teaches basic tennis strokes and strategy in an enthusiastic, but low-pressure, environment. For the intermediate and advanced players, every session consists of intense drills to refine strokes, conditioning exercises, strategy, and competitive match play.
