RDUTennis returns to beautiful Chetola Resort for 1 week of summer camp during the popular 4th of July holiday week.

Camp will be offered to novice level children from the ages of 4-12. Basic drills & games will be offered each day to make this a very “non competitive” approach to the game. Camp operates Monday, Tues, Wed, and Friday this week. There will be no camp held on the 4th of July.

Chetola Resort tennis camp will feature a fun & novice approach to tennis. Campers will have a blast working with RDUTennis staff in the cooler conditions of the mountains of NC. Tennis will be the primary dynamic offered for this camp with the opportunity to take multiple breaks + use of the playground for our younger campers.

Campers may stay for the 2nd portion of the half-day camp that is offered by the Chetola Resort. This is a separate dynamic from tennis camp, but our staff will escort campers to the Highland Rec Center after tennis concludes.

You may enroll for the whole week or drop-in daily.
