RDUTennis offers tennis camps and clinics at more than 30 locations all over North Carolina and now have reached the DC market. They provide an environment that's fun and encouraging for kids of all ages and skill-levels to learn the game of tennis and feel better about themselves. Camps and clinics are focused on teaching basic tennis skills and having fun as opposed to competition. Participants range in skill level from beginner to intermediate, and coaches will base the clinics on the skill level of our participants.

RDUTennis is open to the public, but like to keep our classes small to give more personal, individualized attention. You get the private club service without the private club prices. Summer camps run four or five days during the week. They include snack breaks and recreational swimming at many of the locations for your kids to cool off and have even more fun after a day of learning new tennis skills.

By the way, RDUTennis is not just for kids. We offer adult clinics for players of all skill levels to develop their abilities and have a lot of fun.

Visit rdutennis.net for locations and information on how to sign up at American University and Trinity Washington University summer camp.
