Summer 2020 holiday camps

We will be running camps over the summer holidays at the North Acton Playing Fields on Noel Road (Map Link) where we have access to 5 tennis courts. However, due to government restrictions, the camps will be run a little differently 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.

If you would like to sign your child(ren) up for our camps, please email us on 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. Accordingly, our indoor facilities, changing rooms and toilets are currently closed.

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

    If you book both morning and afternoon junior camps, please arrange to pick your children up at 12:00 and drop them back at 14:00. Unfortunately, we cannot look after them in between camps due to a lack of indoor facilities.

    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 either offer a makeup session or a refund at the end of the summer camp season.

    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 date of play, we will offer a makeup within the summer camp period. Should you cancel within 7 days of the start of the camp, we are only able to offer a makeup if space is available within the summer camp period.

    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.
