The coaches at Strathfield Sports Club have had one-eye on the local immerging tennis talent and the other on ensuring fun is the name of the game for our School Holiday Tennis Camps currently being held at the Club.

Run by our Inner West Tennis Academy, the camps are a great opportunity for kids to improve their tennis in a fun environment. Rest assured the aim of the camps is participation and not to uncover the next Bernard Tomic- although we wouldn’t mind if we did!

The kids have had a great time during week one, with the fine weather conducive to a lot of on court action. They have been involved in a series of clinics and round-robin play, that not only allows them to work on their game but encourages social interaction as a group.

If your kids were unable to attend the first week or you’re just realising it might be a great idea to get the kids out of the house during the school holidays, it’s not too late to sign up for week two.

The camp will run from 9am-3pm every day next week (Monday 22nd– Friday 26th April), except the ANZAC Day public holiday on the Thursday. There is the opportunity for complimentary pre-camp supervision from 8am and until 5pm at the camps conclusion upon request.

The camps cater for kids aged five to 18 and are split into groups according to age and ability. The cost is $120 for the week or $40 per day if your kids aren’t able to attend every day. There is also a $10 discount off the full week price for each additional sibling.

Lunch is provided, with the kids being catered for throughout the week with a variety of sausage sizzles, hot dogs and sandwiches and a pizza day on Friday. All participants will receive complimentary drinks and treats throughout the week and a certificate of achievement and report on their progress at the camps conclusion. Trophies and prizes are also awarded for various achievements.

The kids are asked to bring appropriate clothing, sports shoes, hat, sunscreen, water bottle, morning tea and a tennis racquet if they have one, otherwise one will be provided. In the event of wet weather the camp will still go ahead, with an indoor contingency program in place.

For more information or to register your kids for the camp please call our head coaches Alex (0417432757) or Shaun (0412745557). Alternatively you can email

We’re sure your kids will have a great time and look forward to sharing in the fun next week!
