2018 Junior Camps

The camps at the Kamloops Tennis Centre are designed to provide a fun learning environment for beginner to intermediate level players ages 7 to 14 years. These tennis camps are designed to help your youngster improve and have fun! Tennis Canada has introduced a new community program called Progressive Tennis with ‘kid-size’ games. With smaller courts, smaller racquets and softer balls, the game is fun and easy to play!We run 4 summer camps in partnership with Pacific Sport - XploreSportz Multi Sport Summer Camps.  You will notice that some camps state: Sign Up - KTC or City of Kamloops.  If they state KTC sign up at the Kamloops Tennis Centre, if it states City of Kamloops, then you must sign up through EZ Reg online at www.kamloops.ca/ezreg or call the City of Kamloops at 250-828-3500.
