How often should my child play for the fastest improvement?
Our experience is that the best recipe for improvement is 2 groups and one private lesson per week.
For the summer camps, how do you handle the rain?
There is no rain cancellation. Campers report to the courts at their normal time and if we are not able to play tennis outside we will continue with our unique rain tennis activities inside the Yorktown High School. Tennis Central's approach values strategy and mental toughness as much as technique and playtime. We believe that the mind and the tennis IQ must be trained in a classroom setting.
What happens if I am not able to pick up my child by the time camp finishes at 3pm?
Pick up closes at 3:15. There is NO aftercare.
Who teaches the camps?
Unlike most programs that staff their camps with highschoolers, the entire Tennis Central Team is composed of adults with world-class credentials/rankings that have been meticulously vetted and certified. Each of them take your child's improvement very seriously and are always available to discuss progress or help you create an individual plan to further accelerate your child's development.
Why choose Tennis Central?
We know there are many tennis clubs and programs in the area, however, Tennis Central stands alone in the quality, professionalism, care and results of its programs and coaches. Our model brings world-class academy style coaches trained in the European Player Development System directly to you in the convenience of your community. Where most programs have only one quality coach on staff, the entire Tennis Central roster will exceed your expectations.
Do you specialize in adults or kids?
Tennis Central specializes in accelerated improvement for all ages. Our junior methodology creates a path to competitve excellence and our adult programs are designed to inspire beginners, reactivate former players and bring every player we touch to their full potential. In Arlington we only have programs for kids, but our facilities in McLean, VA and Bethesda, MD have vibrant adult programs.
What should my child bring for summer camp?
We recommend that children bring the following to camp every day:
What happens if I miss a class?
What is the 'Minimum Number of Registrants Policy'?
What is Tennis Central Refund Policy?
REFUND POLICY: Tennis Central does not offer refunds under any circumstances. Payments received can be redeemed in the form of credits that can be applied to any product or service that Tennis Central provides. No shows and late cancellations are not granted credits.
What is Tennis Central Safety Protocol
o Sports Camps and Sporting Activities: Campers may remove masks for sporting activities except for certain times in groups when prolonged social distancing cannot be properly maintained.
o Weather Note: High Heat Index Days or poor air quality days: Masks will not be required if the air quality would pose a health risk due to heat stroke. As always, Creative Summer evaluates weather days and brings campers indoors, as necessary. If camper activities are moved indoors, mask use will be required.
