UK Holiday Camps

"Are you looking for something inspiring for your children during the holidays?"

Annabel Croft Tennis Academy UK holiday camps offer players the chance to work on their tennis skills during the school holidays. Unlike a host of other sports camps providers, ACTA guarantees that our camps are actual learning experiences and not babysitting services. Of course, the camps are great fun, socially engaging and feature loads of our favourite games, but we make sure that every child has a good understanding of how to play the game better by the time they leave.

Each of our camps are hosted by our regular tennis professionals who are experts at creating the right atmosphere on court and working with players of all ages and standards. Groups are carefully organised to match players of the same ability, and we include coaching in both technical and tactical areas as well. Each week is highlighted by a well run tournament to introduce players to the demands of competitive play and we have our own special team games running throughout the week as well.

Key features are:

  • Small group ratios with players in groups of approximately 1:6
  • Carefully matched standards of play
  • Specific ball colour work following the LTA Mini Tennis Guidelines
  • 5 different types of camp for players aged 4-17yrs
  • Tournament play each week and loads of fun games and exercises

Our Little Hitters tennis camp is perfect for new starters or very young and aspiring players. With a clear emphasis on having fun on court, the Little Hitters camp gives players a chance to really get into tennis for the first time or to develop their key skills over a longer period of time. The course features elements of footwork, swing shapes, co-ordination, and team play as well as time off court to learn about the game. All classes are held in a mini court and players learn using either sponge or red tennis balls and 19-21" rackets.

Little Hitters Mini Camp runs from 10am-1pm each day at the NTC


Junior Squad Tennis Camp (ages 7-10yrs)

As players get older, they progress into ACTA's Junior level of play which is held on a 3/4 court and utilises orange transition tennis balls. The Junior Squad Camp is suitable for a range of players including beginners but its recommended that players have played some tennis previously to fit into our groups. The camp offers a great mix of teaching with some of our favourite academy drills and exercises blended with team games, coaches challenges and competitions. Look out at this age group for our favourite camp game of Cookie Tennis which has become quite famous amongst our regular players!

Development Squad Tennis Camp (ages 10-13yrs)

Once players have moved out of mini tennis at the age of 10, progress is made on a full tennis court using hard yellow balls. Our development camp focuses on this age group and the growing need to add strength and power to each players game as well as cover more court space at a faster speed. ACTA does run some camps for improvers at this level using green transition balls so please make sure to mention your experience level when making an enquiry. All players in the development camp are encouraged learn to compete more regularly with a mix of singles, doubles and coaches challenges scheduled during the week but there is also plenty of time to work on grip changes, service actions and techniques including the development of spin and speed to various strokes.

Players are encouraged to work at their own speed to develop their game with advice on creating a clear pathway of improvement for each player no matter what their standard of play. The course also encourages players to find out more about club tennis with information on linking their tennis to the LTA and competitive network of local tournaments.
