Connecticut Boys & Girls Tennis Summer Camp

About Connecticut Tennis Camp
Fairfield University

1073 N Benson Rd, Fairfield, CT 06824

Campers will enjoy Fairfield University’s Walsh Athletic Center Tennis Courts. The facility has 6 outdoor courts that were built and resurfaced for the 2021 men’s and women’s seasons.

In addition, our summer campers have the opportunity to spend free time at the University’s newly renovated Leslie C. Quick RecPlex swimming pool to cool off from the summer afternoon heat. The eight-lane, 25-meter pool features a glass wall behind the diving end of the pool, giving the facility a bright feel. The facility also boasts a whirlpool, sun deck, saunas, and locker rooms.

Camp is open to all ages and ability levels. Each camper will be assessed and grouped with campers of similar age and ability levels. Adjustments to the groups may be made throughout the week to provide campers with opportunities to train with and compete against different players. Drills and games are designed to help each camper learn, improve, and have fun!

Any Camper who must cancel their registration more than fifteen (15) days prior to the camp start date will receive a voucher equal to the full amount of camp tuition already paid which may be used toward any program or camp offered by eCamps. If a camper must cancel their registration fourteen (14) days or fewer prior to the start of camp, eCamps will issue camper or parent a voucher equal to 50% of the camp tuition, which can be transferred to a future program or camp within the same calendar year or next calendar year. The voucher is also transferable to another family member and is good for any camp offered by eCamps within one year of the date of purchase. Camp vouchers are not extended to campers who leave camp after the start of a session. Cash refunds are not offered under any circumstances.
