October Half Term Holiday Camps

We will be running camps over the October half term holidays (25th October to 29th October) at the North Acton Playing Fields on Noel Road (Map Link) where we have access to 5 tennis courts. The camps will be run in a similar manner to our previous camps in order to ensure the safety of everyone involved. The camps are for all children from the ages of 3 years and above and are taught in age and ability groups. Our expert coaches use lots of drills, games and match play to improve tennis skills and make sure the children have fun.

Places at the camp are strictly limited as per the LTA Guidelines, and have historically been oversubscribed. Both Junior and Mini Red camps will run in the morning only from 10:00 - 12:00.

If you like to sign up please email us ASAP at info@hctennis.co.uk.

    Important Information

    Places at the camps are strictly limited and will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. We strongly recommend booking as early as possible.

    Our preference is for all players to attend on a weekly basis as it allows us to plan for the safety of all our coaches and players. Daily practice also allows your child(ren) to develop their tennis skills more quickly. We therefore strongly recommend that you take advantage of our discounted weekly rate. Weekly bookings are now open but daily bookings will only be accepted if there is space available a week in advance.

    The Lawn Tennis Association, the governing body of tennis in England, has set strict guidelines for all coaches and tennis facilities to follow and we request that you assist us by following these guidelines.

    We request that you please drop off your children at the allocated time and collect them promptly at the end of the session.

    Should HC Tennis be unable to run a session due to poor weather, we will inform you as soon as possible before the start of the session. In this case, we will credit your account for future camps or term time lessons with us.

    If the weather deteriorates during a session and it is impossible to continue the camp, we will contact you to collect your child(ren) as we cannot shelter them indoors. If over half of the session is run, the session will be considered completed.

    Should you cancel your place at the camp for any reason, refunds cannot be offered. If you cancel more than 7 days before the first date of play, we will provide a credit, which you can use to pay for future camps or lessons.

    If you would like to sign your child(ren) up for our camps, please email us on info@hctennis.co.uk. Your place is only confirmed once payment has been received.
