DISHER CAMPS AT EMORY WITH COACH BRIDGET DISHER

Swoop's Starters

A one-of-a-kind tennis camp curriculum for boys & girls, ages 5-8, at the beginner and advanced beginner levels.

At a minimum Swoop's Starters will be introduced to the following skills: forehand, backhand, volleys & overhead. Some players will also learn to serve. In addition, full-day campers will learn how to keep score and will play lots of fun, skill reinforcing games. Swoop's Starters will learn tennis on smaller courts with bigger balls.

Our goal is for your child to love tennis after just one week of camp!
