TAKE THE CHALLENGE, BEAT YOUR BEST

On Court Tennis Camps are quality coaching camps that offers 7-14 year olds the chance to develop on a variety of skills, techniques and behaviours to help them enjoy tennis, every OCTC is filled with plenty of technical and tactical sessions as well as competitions and challenges.

Every child will complete a worksheet during the camp which includes feedback provided by their coach at the end of the camp. All children who attend the full OCTC receive a free t-shirt. We also have spot prizes, certificates and one child will receive the BE AT YOUR BEST award for displaying the best Bravery, Enthusiasm, Sportsmanship and Teamwork during the week.

The On Court Tennis Camp offers 7-14 year olds the chance to develop and build on various different skills that will help them to enjoy the fantastic sport of tennis.

This is done though a carefully planned camp designed by top LTA Development coaches and childcare professionals centred around game based learning. Game based learning allows players of all ages and abilities to play the game then work on improving areas of weakness and building areas of strength whilst importantly understanding tactical decision making.

The curriculum uses games, technical sessions, challenges and competitions to allow tennis players of all abilities to BE AT THEIR BEST.

Each of our camps include sessions to help develop:

  1. Coordination, speed, agility, footwork patterns and flexibility
  2. Technical development of strokes appropriate for the level of the player
  3. Tactical understanding of options and positioning
  4. Teamwork through team games and team competitions

ON COURT TENNIS COACHES

Activate Camps have trained managers on every site who come from a variety of different backgrounds. We actively recruit school teachers, PGCE students, qualified sports coaches and childcare professionals to take our management roles. The professional staff we employ helps us exceed the high standard that are set and expected by Ofsted. All our staff are DBS and we will always have at least one first aid trained staff member on site at all time.

We recognize the importance of health and safety and child welfare. We are the only provider of our kind that has training developed in partnership with Cardinus Risk Management and approved by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management.

Without exception, all of our coaching staff are qualified, DBS checked and have completed our own comprehensive training which is certified by IIRSM.

We value our coaches experience very highly and employ several current and former national rated players as OCT coaches. Their experience of playing in competitions add great value and insight into what is required to play at the highest level. We are proud to have several coaches who have received national recognition for their coaching.
