Our tennis program is ready to go! In 2021 we proudly unveiled our brand new tennis complex. Our head pros Suresh Maurya and Eric Erlandsen supervise a staff of 12 experienced instructors. Each year Suresh trains over 500 youth players and 15 coaches at local , state and national levels in India. He is a certified USPTA, USPTR and AITA professional coach and has earned multiple awards including USPTRs prestigious “coach of the year award-India “ and PTR “presidents award. “ He holds the title of “masters tennis instructor. “ Eric is a USPTA and PTR certified head teaching professional from Georgia. Throughout the day Suresh and Eric are on the courts with our staff teaching techniques during sports instruction, selective and clinic at our East Coast camp. Our program includes intra-camp and inter-camp tennis tournaments. In addition our campers compete in a Davis cup tournament as well as camper- counselor tournaments. During rest hour private lessons are available at no additional charge. Campers who enjoy tennis at the more leisurely level focus more on developing skills while more avid players can participate in our Tennis Academy which is a higher level instructional program available to campers entering fifth grade or above. They commit to an entire morning of enhanced instruction. The Academy helps players improve their tennis play combined with strength and conditioning.
