The Andalusia Tennis Association, in conjunction with the City of Andalusia, will host its 21st Summer Tennis Camp.

The camp has been an annual summer program for the past 21 years offering local children ages 5-18 the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game and to play competitively with one another. The ATA camp is dedicated to instilling a love of tennis by offering lessons with a certified tennis professional.

The camp will be held on the LBWCC tennis courts Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the weeks of June 6, 13, 20, 27 and July 11 and 18. 

The cost of six weeks of camp and a camp tee shirt is $30 per camper; $50 for two campers and $65 for three or more campers. Any child unable to pay the registration fee may apply for a scholarship at Leisure Services.

Class ages and times are as follows:  5-8 year olds, 8-9 a.m.; 9 and 10 year olds, 9-10 a.m.; 11 year old and up beginner, 10-11 a.m.; 11 year old and up, intermediate or advanced, 11-12:30 p.m. 

Campers may register at the courts throughout the camp dates. The ATA asks that each camper bring a tennis racquet, wear tennis shoes and bring plenty of water. The camp has several tennis racquets for campers who don’t have one of their own. See you on the courts!
