The Lafayette Tennis Club offers the finest and most modern method of tennis instruction. Our instructors are trained to assist all students in learning basic stroke fundamentals. The Camp is overseen by Hunter Gallaway, Tennis Director and Owner. He is formerly a world ranked player, Collegiate All-American, and USPTA certified instructor. He was the 2004, 2005-, 2006-, 2008-, and 2009-Men’s Open Player of the Year. Hunter has won over 15 national titles including multiple GOLD BALLS! He is assisted by a Camp Director and an outstanding group of experienced professionals and juniors' instructors who have been personally trained in all aspects of teaching tennis.
The camp structure has changed. Due to the high demand for morning sessions, we have added 1 hour onto the camp, so it runs from 930a to 1230p. The afternoon and all-day camps will be the same but we are only taking one hour for lunch instead of 2 hours. More tennis!!! All day campers will still be able to celebrate their final day with an afternoon swim in our new amazing heated pool!!!
When you are signing up for the camp, please do the monetary calculations for how many weeks that you will sign up. If you sign up for 3 or 4 weeks it makes sense to join the club on a month to month basis with no obligation. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9259372582to find out about membership! Full family memberships are as low as $130 per month and $115 for a Single membership. There is an initiation fee of only $100 and we have waived the $50 processing fee! We have so many fun programs for the whole family!
