Tennis Courts at Palo Alto High School
25 Churchill Avenue, Palo Alto 94301
(located behind PAUSD building)
Every year, our instructors develop as teachers and are endowed with more responsibility toward making camp a better experience. They are or were Palo Alto High School varsity players handpicked for their propensity toward teaching. Many are returning from college for the summer, and once again will pick up the torch. Our instructors write weekly evaluations on campers. Each observes a number of players and provides information on their needs and short-term goals.
Flexibile & Fun
The camp continues to improve through the implementation of new ideas for fun and learning, creating a successful program. Last year was the best yet. Introduction of the “8 Board”, a device to learn body movement; “System 5”, a program linking back swing to court position; and a new "games approach" to skill building were very successful additions. Also, feature tie-break matches on center court during our daily break proved to be not only educational and fun, but very entertaining. Campers and instructors play a rousing, narrated match for all to see and enjoy. All levels of players are included.
