4 Star’s Tennis Camps at the University of Virginia provide an integrated approach to the total tennis game. They keep groups small to better work on stroke development with private lessons, strategy sessions, drilling, and match play included. Camp begins with an evaluation of your level of play, and while the emphasis is on improvement, the atmosphere is one of excitement and fun.
Tennis aside, one of the camp’s goals is for campers to leave having made new friends, had lots of fun and improved their tennis games. One measure of its success is that since 1975, when it was founded, it has had more than 20,000 students attend its various programs. Half of them are either repeaters or were referred by former students.
There are two options: the traditional full-day Tennis Camp and Tennis Plus, whose on-court program is structured to allow students time to pursue other activities such as golf, recreational sports, or personal fitness in addition to tennis.
Campers work with an experienced staff headed by Patrick Kearns, the Virginia High School Coach of the Year.
