The Valter Paiva Tennis Academy Thanksgiving Tennis Camp is open to players aged 5-18. Everyone from the beginner to the advanced player is encouraged to attend. All camps are taught by USPTA-certified coaches and Valter Paiva personally oversees the Camp Program.
The most important highlight of Valter Paiva Spring Break Tennis Camp is that the kids HAVE LOTS OF FUN while DISCOVERING AND ENJOYING THE GAME OF TENNIS. THE SPORT OF A LIFE TIME! Beginners will be taught the fundamentals of tennis. The intermediate players will work on developing solid ground strokes, serves and volleys. The advanced juniors will focus on fine-tuning their overall game by simulating pressure situations during game-like settings. Good sportsmanship and a positive attitude are strongly encouraged. Participants will have daily refreshment breaks consisting of Gatorade, water and NRG food bars and prizes will be awarded on Friday including one Wilson Jr. tennis racket to a lucky camper.
