The Venus & Serena Williams Summer Vacation Tennis Camp has been in full swing since June, but it is not too late for children ages five to 18 to attend.  There are two more sessions remaining, and more may be added.

Each session is a week long, and includes daily tennis lessons, video analysis, hand eye coordination drills, chess lessons, a talent show, and a field trip.  

The main goal of the camp is to teach these kids tennis, and develop their skills so that they can get to the next level, all while having fun during their summer break.

“The experiences that the kids at the camp are having is very good,” said Richard Williams, Camp Director, and the father of Venus and Serena.  “Every time I come I’m very surprised at the work that they have done, and how well it’s done.  And it’s done with a great attitude.  That’s what they need to get to the next level.”

The camp is held at Rancho Cienega Sports Complex.  To register your child, stop by the Rancho Cienega Tennis Shop, or call them at (323) 299-4631
