Location: Waynflete Fore River Campus (283 Osgood St.)
9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Join Coach Mary Gray on the Waynflete tennis courts to learn and play! Coach Mary Gray teaches the basics in a way that makes learning the game accessible and fun for all levels of players. Campers will learn basic tennis skills—proper racket grip, forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads, and scoring. Opportunities for light-hearted match play will give campers the full picture of the game. Tennis camps will balance time on the court with a variety of fun activities to keep campers actively engaged.

“My top priority is that my students leave the courts having had a great time. I work to promote a love of the game of tennis, help players develop and practice good stroke mechanics along with a sound understanding of the game, and come away feeling good about the time they spent in their clinics. I stress sportsmanship and being a team player. Tennis is a great lifetime sport—what better way to spend your summer?!”
