Maybe their Bethel experience helped them leave with open eyes, and then when they had a chance to look around, they said, I can make the world a better place.

Tennis Camp

Please note: there will be no tennis camp this summer. Tennis camp will resume in summer of 2015.

The Bethel College Tennis Camp is designed first and foremost to provide a fun and safe learning environment for the game of tennis. Our camp staff is made up of committed and proven teaching professionals who have a wide range of experience at both the high school and college levels. It is our hope that each camper will leave the Bethel College Tennis Camp with a renewed love for the game of tennis while also gaining the knowledge to improve and develop their game at a higher level. A brochure with complete camp pricing & information is available.
