Summer tennis camp back at The Chetola Resort {Giveaway}

RDUTennis will be one of the very few tennis camps hosting a session in either Avery or Watauga counties the week of July 1. RDUTennis is the largest tennis management company in the Tarheel State. They offer clinics & camps covering North Carolina, Orlando, and Washington, D.C.

Camp will be offered to novice level children from the ages of 4-12. Basic drills and 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.

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. Parents will have to register with The Chetola directly to enroll into the afternoon camp.

You may enroll for the whole week or drop-in daily. Contact owner, Brian Rosenthal with any questions at

The link to register, along with viewing prices & camp schedule can be clicked on below.
