Tennis camps in Toronto won't necessarily mould your little Milos (or Eugenie) into the next Canadian phenom, but if you're keen on having your kid work more on their backhand than their backtalk, read on for my pick for the top tennis camps Toronto has to offer.
North Toronto Tennis Club
This Lytton Park area tennis club boasts 1:6 ratios that keep development the focus at this day camp, with a ravine like setting that promises respite from the burning sun.
Moore Park Tennis Camp
St. Clair and Mt. Pleasant is home to Moore Park tennis club. Their program combines physical conditioning and drills with a focus on having fun.
Toronto Tennis Academy
With both a high performance or recreational programs to choose from your little ace will bring the ruckus with their racquet and learn the finer points of the sport from the pros.
Howard Park Tennis Club
Tennis pros and coaches put kids through the paces with full or half day camps available for kids aged 4-18. The on-site clubhouse keeps campers dry in sudden downpours.
Nike Lytton Sports Camps at Havergal
The Hogwarts-esque school at Avenue and Lawrence offers a scenic introduction into the sport of tennis, with emphasis on enjoying the game. No need for spying - detailed progress reports go home weekly.
Indoor courts for rainy days are just one of the main draws for Mayfair's three locations. Kids love ending the day poolside, each camp boasts a recreational swim just before pickup.
Uptown aces dig the green surroundings at Wanless Park, and the nearby playground doesn't hurt either. This non for profit camp operates and maintains the city's courts, which have been in the park for 50 years.
Bayview Village Tennis Club
For players learning to go up a notch (or two) this Bayview and Sheppard area club offers video analysis of each player as well as testing for Tennis Canada accreditation.
Toronto Tennis City
Steps from the Davisville subway makes drop off a snap, and full or half day options give parents age appropriate options. The facilities are top notch, boasting clay courts and an adorable clubhouse.
Kew Gardens Tennis Club
This Beaches favourite boasts a brag worthy ten courts-both clay and hardcourt- giving kids the opportunity to learn on both. Free extended care makes this camp a no-brainer for working parents.
