Nike Tennis Camp at Dwight Davis Memorial Tennis Center
Due to local and state regulations, we anticipate having to reduce our enrollment numbers significantly this year. You can expect a high demand on these first-come-first-serve camper spots, so please be sure to register early.
We offer Full Day (9:00am-4:00pm | ages 10-18) and Half Day (9:00am-12:00pm | age 5-18) camps for kids with All Skills and “10 and Under Tennis” programs.
Full Day Program: The full day program runs daily from 9:00am-4:00pm and is open to players ages 10-18 and will cover footwork/speed drills, stroke technique and serve and volley drills. Afternoons focus on match play and are geared towards intermediate to advanced level players.
Morning Half Day Program: The Morning Half Day program runs daily from 9:00am-12:00pm and is open to players ages 5-18 will focus on stroke technique using fun games and drills.
All sessions are open to players of all skill levels, unless otherwise noted. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own tennis instruction needs can be addressed throughout the week.
- All Skills: Geared towards all ability levels. Includes concentrated work to develop the proper fundamentals and a mix of drilling and match play.
- 10 and Under Tennis: The“10 and Under Tennis” program features the USTA’s successful new teaching format. This is an exciting way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts.

TO EXPAND COMMUNITY CLASSES
AT LONGVIEW FARM PARK
Starting in Spring 2020, Equine-Assisted Therapy (EAT) will be hosting its popular Equine-Assisted Learning classes at Longview Farm Park in Town and Country.
Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) classes are hands-on group experiences, in which a relationship with a horse is a path to self-discovery and growth. EAL classes are not typical horseback-riding classes. Instead, participants interact with horses using natural horsemanship ground-skill methods to help them deal with life’s issues. Whether children or adults, we all experience complex issues that can leave us feeling unable to fully participate in and enjoy life. This program can help by giving a new awareness of self and developing personal growth through relationships.
EAT is a member of PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International), Spirit Horse and Equine Connections. Our team of certified instructors & trained volunteers work with the riders and horses to promote the confidence and growth that can be experienced through therapeutic horsemanship.
Community groups seeking fun team-building activities next year for corporate service days, nonprofit mixers, civic club events, school field trips and church group or scout troop outings are invited to call EAT at 314-971-0605 or email [email protected] to schedule their Longview Farm Park day and time.
About Equine-Assisted Therapy:
Equine-Assisted Therapy, Inc. provides horsemanship experiences to persons with mental, physical, and psychological disabilities in order to enhance the quality and productivity of their lives. EAT is the only therapeutic horse program in St Louis County, with two convenient locations to serve the entire Greater Metro area.

Tennis lessons in full swing at Bernard Middle – St. Louis Call Newspapers
June began with a week of free tennis lessons on the courts in front of Bernard Middle School.
“I figured if I did a free week people would come,” said Mark Platt, owner of Beginners World Tennis.
He was right.
“We usually do a free day and we get 15 or 20 kids,” Platt stated in a Mehlville School District news release. “Originally we were scheduled for three hours and we had more than 40 kids on the waiting list. We had record numbers.”
Platt said he has partnered with the Mehlville Community Enrichment Office for more than 25 years. Though the free tennis lessons are finished, lessons for a fee are available for the remainder of the summer through the Mehlville Community Enrichment Office.
Weekly camps take place Monday through Thursday. They are available for children in three age groups ranging from 4 to 15 years old. The cost is $60.
“The level of enthusiasm has been high,” Platt stated in the release. “The kids have really improved from their first day. I think there’s a lot of interest in tennis in the Mehlville School District.”
Platt employs students who also play tennis in the Mehlville School District.
“Some of the instructors here, like twin brothers Matthew and Christian Kalinowski, are No. 1 and 2 for Oakville,” Platt stated. “They’re good enough to eventually play college tennis. Sabina Okanovich, the head instructor here, is going to go to UM-St. Louis, and could play club tennis or college tennis.”
Christian Kalinowski is between his junior and senior years at Oakville High School.
“Me and my brother are No. 1 in doubles right now. We made it to districts, and we made it to sectionals,” stated Kalinowski, when asked about his ranking. “I think these kids enjoy what they’re learning. They definitely like the games and the drills. They start running and getting into the game, so that’s good.”
Kalinowski commented on what children can learn about tennis when they are as young as age 4.
“You can teach them a forehand or a backhand,” he stated in the release. “You can teach them volleys. Sometimes you can even teach them how to serve at this age, too.”
Okanovich graduated from Mehlville High School June 1. She starts at University of Missouri-St. Louis in the fall.
“I’ll probably do intramurals there, and I hope to come back and help with the girls’ tennis team this summer,” she stated in the release. “This is just a way for kids to get to know what it’s like to play tennis.
“They’re all really excited to be here. They all seem to have fun and play, so it’s a good time.”
Platt started his tennis career with a free program in University City 50 years ago. He went on to play tennis at University City High School and Washington University.
“For the 4- to 6-year-olds, it’s basic eye-to-hand coordination,” he stated. “The game has changed, with softer balls and more kid-sized nets, so they can rally the ball, and there’s more hitting and less running around. When they get to the 7-to-10 age group, we switch to orange balls and kids play on teams. And 11- to 15-year-olds play with regular tennis balls.”
“I want kids to see there are opportunities for scholarships and careers in tennis,” Platt stated.

Tennis Camps Abroad
Learn from the pros. Every foreign tennis camp is proud of its coaching staff. Classes are taught by distinguished athletes, teachers of tennis academies and associations such as the Lawn Tennis Association. Outstanding tennis players such as Joanna Konta and Kyle Edmund have trained under the organization’s programs.
Classes with LTA representatives are offered by the British private boarding school LINES Downe House School, which invites schoolchildren from all over the world to summer vacations in the UK.
Tennis camps abroad are held in many countries around the world.For example, children can choose an Enforex course of 12 workouts and 20 lessons in English or Spanish and spend their holidays in Salamanca, Marbella, Barcelona or Madrid.
Learning a foreign language
The method of teaching through interests has long proven its effectiveness. A teenager may begin to protest if an attempt is made to make him sit down to practice in the summer, but it is worth combining his studies with his favorite sport, and the child will achieve noticeable progress in just 2-3 weeks (the standard duration of a children’s vacation shift).
Another positive factor is the natural language environment in which adolescents find themselves. They constantly hear foreign speech around them, contact with students from other countries, which allows them to significantly expand their vocabulary.
Why the summer tennis camp is good
Children’s leisure time is thought out and carefully organized: the participants are guaranteed safety, a varied and useful menu, comfortable accommodation (most often on campuses of educational institutions), the necessary infrastructure, qualified teachers and trainers.An inexpensive tennis camp will cost an average of € 1200-1500 for 2 weeks, with accommodation. Such shifts are offered by King’s College Madrid and Alpadia Language School.

Tennis camp in St. Petersburg. Summer tennis camp, tennis
Going in for sports is a fascinating and exciting process that brings not only healing for the body, but also a sea of positive emotions. One of the most child-friendly sports is tennis. This is a great way to spend interesting leisure time in the company of peers, together with harmonious physical development and the formation of many positive qualities.
Children who regularly spend time on the court are much more agile, active and faster than their peers. They get closer to people faster, know how to establish friendly relations and get sick less. That is why spending summer holidays in a tennis camp for a child keen on tennis is not only an undeniable benefit for the body, but also an excellent leisure time filled with new impressions and bright events.
In addition, tennis camp is an opportunity to improve your skill level. During their stay in the camp, children train under the guidance of mentors every day, which allows them to more intensively work out all the elements of tennis technique and return home even more prepared.
Tennis as a specialization of the children’s camp
Tennis camps are equipped with excellent courts and all the necessary equipment. Mentors conduct regular trainings, carefully work out the correct grip and stance, the elements of basic shots and the correct serve with the mentees.
You can send a child with any level of training to a tennis camp – qualified teachers effectively develop the skills of both beginners and experienced players on the court.Groups are formed according to the level of sports readiness and age, the number of people in the groups does not exceed eight, so the coach has enough time to find each ward an individual approach. Classes for very little ones are carried out with a minimum load, more in a playful way.
What is included in the program of stay at the tennis camp
Tennis camps are located in a green area, so all training takes place outdoors. The camp program includes:
- Regular tennis lessons,
- General physical fitness,
- Continuous monitoring of the training and practice process,
- Specially designed programs,
- Outdoor and outdoor sports games,
- Active walks and recreational activities.
We invite your children, regardless of their level of initial readiness for tennis, to the sports and active world of tennis camps, which will give them a boost of health, vigor and good mood for the entire school year.

90,000 Roscoe Tanner – Roscoe Tanner
American Tennis Player
Roscoe Tanner (born October 15, 1951) is a retired American tennis player who turned professional in 1972 and reached the 4th place in the world singles rankings on July 30, 1979.
Tanner was known for his big left-handed serve that sprinted to 153 mph in Palm Springs in 1978 during the final against Raul Ramirez. He is also known for winning the men’s singles title in the first of two Australian Open events held in 1977. Tanner won the tournament in January, Vitas Gerulaitis won the tournament in December. Tanner reached the Wimbledon final in 1979, losing to Bjorn Borg in five sets.
In the 2000s, Tanner made headlines for legal issues including lengthy jail sentences, arrests for missed alimony payments, financial fraud charges, and bankruptcy.
Leonard Roscoe Tanner III was a native of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, graduated from Baylor High School in Chattanooga, and along with teammate Sandy Meyer helped Stanford University achieve prominence in varsity tennis.Tanner played number one singles and Mayer number two. In 1972, Tanner and Mayer won the NCAA doubles championship, and Stanford’s team finished second in the NCAA tournament after Trinity, Texas. The team also included Chico Hagee, Rick Fisher, Jim Delaney, Geri Groslimond, Chip Fisher, Paul Sidone and Tim Noonan.
Tanner defeated Harun Rahim 10–8 in the fifth set to win the 1970 United States Amateur Championship.
Tanner defeated Guillermo Vilas in three straight sets in the 1977 Australian Open Finals (January), winning his first and only Grand Slam title. Tanner lost a five-set match to Bjorn Borg in the 1979 Wimbledon Final, which was the first Wimbledon final to be televised live in the United States as part of Breakfast NBC at Wimbledon . Tanner avenged this defeat on Borg by beating him in four sets in the US Open quarterfinals two months later, in a match in which Tanner’s 140 mph serve knocked the net in the fourth set.Tanner lost to Vitas Gerulaitis in the semifinals. In his autobiography, Tanner described his 1979 US Open win over Borg and defeat to Gerulaitis as “the highest of my highs and the lowest of my tennis court lows two days apart.”
Tanner’s unorthodox but very powerful left-handed serve was thrown very low and delivered a full-body kick, earning him the nickname “The Rocket”. His meteoric serve at 153 mph was the fastest serve in tournaments since February 1978, until Andy Roddick served 155 mph in the Davis Cup semi-finals in September 2004 against Vladimir Volchkov.
He won the Davis Cup in 1981 playing with John McEnroe, Eliot Telcher and Peter Fleming on a team led by Arthur Ashe that defeated Argentina in the final played at the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati.
