‚ÄčJunior Tennis Camp (This program schedule is not offered in 2021)

The  Fairview Summer Junior Tennis Camp is open to all Fairview members and non-members (at an increased rate). The nine-week program begins Monday, June 8, 2020 and runs through Friday, August 8. Camp is held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings, with individual clinic sessions beginning at 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00.

The junior player can take 1, 2, or 3 hours of clinic per day. Each hour, players are divided into small groups of players of similar age and ability. Each small group has its own instructor.

The flexibility of our tennis program allows children that want to participate in both swim team and Junior Tennis Camp to do so. These children plan a time to play tennis around their swim team schedule. Once on the courts, the coaching staff separates players according to age and ability level.

High School and tournament players are encouraged to participate in the Fairview Junior Tennis Camp.

Fees for members for the entire 9 week session are as follows:

1 hour/ day: $300 ($8.33 per hour!)
2 hours/ day: $350 ($4.86 per hour!)
3 hours/ day: $375 ($3.47 per hour!)

Fees for non-members for the entire 9 week session are as follows:

1 hour/ day: $400 ($11.11 per hour!)
2 hours/ day: $450 ($6.25 per hour!)
3 hours/ day: $475 ($4.40 per hour!)

Each Junior Tennis Camp participant receives a Fairview Tennis t-shirt. Fees include all instructional activities and social events.


Weekly Junior Tennis Option

Fairview offers a weekly junior tennis clinic to players that do not want to play for the entire 9 week summer camp period. For the 2020 season, weekly junior tennis players may participate in junior tennis during the first 2 weeks of the junior tennis camp season and the last 2 weeks of the season. The cost for the weekly clinic is $70 per week for one hour of play per day. Weekly players are not eligible to play on the Fairview tennis team.


Social Events

Special events also take place as part of the Junior Tennis Camp, including: the Parent-Child July Fourth Friendly Tournament, Melted Kit Kat Day, Friday popsicles, and a pizza party. Dates for the 2020 season will be added to the club calendar as soon as they are finalized.


Tennis Team

The Fairview Tennis Team participates in the Jefferson League. All junior camp players are eligible and encouraged to join the Fairview Junior Tennis Team once deemed ready by the coaching staff. Players as young as seven years of age have competed in matches.

Tennis matches are held on Thursdays from 1:00 - 3:00 PM, at Fairview and other local clubs in the Jefferson League. Participation is foremost, and competition is low key. There is no additional charge for junior tennis camp players to join the team.
