Young athletes work best and learn the most in an environment that is personal and has the flexibility to tailor instruction to address individual needs. Hardin-Simmons University Tennis Camp uses small group instruction combined with individual attention to form the cornerstone of camp curriculum. Court time includes a variety of activities designed to keep campers motivated while they improve fundamentals. Skill work and discussions are balanced with match play offering each player the opportunity to work on tactics and employ the mental preparation skills they are learning. A variety of fun, social, and recreational activities planned for off-court times give campers a chance to get to know each other, the coaches, and to form long lasting friendships.
We have now moved the camp to the new Streich Tennis Center at 1526 Vogel.
All 8 courts have lighting!

Evening events include games, bowling, movies, campus tours, and a pool party. For activities such as bowling and the movies, there will be a nominal fee.
