frequently asked questions
What should my child bring?
Each child should bring a hat and a water bottle. We strongly encourage tennis shoes, but we do allow other athletic shoes if you are comfortable with that.
Do they need to have their own racquet?
A tennis racquet is required; however, if your child does not have one, we have Dunlop racquets that can be purchased from Mike.
Are snacks or lunch provided for full-day programs?
We will not be providing food or drinks. Full-day campers are to bring their own peanut-free lunch. We encourage drinking water instead of sugary juices and pop.
What happens when it rains?
Make-up sessions are applicable only for after-school programs in the event of rain.
An email will be sent out if the sessions are cancelled due to rain.
If a session is cancelled due to rain, a make-up session will be offered. A credit will be added to your account for every cancelled after-school session, which can be used towards our programs. The credit is only valid for the current season (2023) and cannot be redeemed for cash.
In case of rain during the summer camps, your child will stay at the clubhouse, and supervised indoor activities will be provided.
What type of activities will my child be participating in during the camp?
We are a tennis-specific academy; therefore, all activities from the warm-up until the end of camp are geared towards learning tennis fundamentals. All campers warm up at the beginning by running and stretching. Depending on the level of play, they will do drills and engage in games geared towards improving their level of play. More advanced students will play matches and learn strategies on how to construct points.
Do they have to be members?
Martingrove Tennis Club requires all camp/program participants (3-18 years of age) to be club members. The junior membership fee is $25 and covers the use of the court during camp and outside of camp activities except for adult program times (This amount will be added to the program's cost). Please check the Martingrove website for further details.
Is the camp tax deductible?
Yes. Our program can qualify as child care expenses.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept Credit and Debit cards.
