Tennis Camp

There will be no tennis camp during the summer of 2016.

Junior Camp (ages 9–18)

The Bethel College Tennis Camps are 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 and information is available.
