RDUTennis is proud to announce 4 partnerships in the Southpark/South Charlotte region of the city. Cameronwood Swim and Racquet Club, Fairmeadows Swim and Racquet Club, Olde Georgetown Swim and Tennis Club, and Southpark Swim Tennis Club offer the same half-day camp dynamic.

Each venue offers 60 minutes of monitored swim time by RDUTennis staff and lifeguards for our campers to cool off at the end of the day. An exciting way to spend summer on the courts and at the pool for ages 5-14. These camps are designed for the novice level player, and we do welcome intermediate campers as well.

RDUTennis, the largest tennis management service based in North Carolina, launched its tennis program for children in Washington, DC, last summer, with camps at American and Washington Trinity Universities. The program was so successful that RDU is back, and they’re offering even more tennis opportunities for area kids. Not only will they operate summer camp at more locations in the District, they are also running after school programs at several local elementary schools.
Along with the camps at American and Trinity, RDU will begin summer sessions at St. Anselm’s Abbey School and Catholic University in July and August for ages 5-14. And one of the best things about RDUTennis camps is the affordability — weekly rates are great compared to many summer programs in the area: Camp fees are $225 for the full day option, and $125 for the half-day option at most locations.
For pricing, camp details, schedules, and registration, visit the RDUTennis website. Inquires can also be addressed to Brian Rosenthal at brian@rdutennis.net.

Top 5 Reasons to Start Playing Tennis

It’s still may be cold outside, but you may already be thinking about some fun options to keep your kids active this spring or you may be considering picking up a new skill yourself. When considering a new activity that’s both beneficial to your health and enjoyable, tennis is a perfect contender. Here are five reasons you or your kids should start playing tennis this spring.

  1. Tennis is a great way to exercise. There are dozens of health benefits from playing tennis, both physical and mental. Just to name a few, playing tennis will help build leg strength, increase agility, strengthen bones and burn calories. Plus, tennis has been shown to increase brain function and ability.
  2. You learn sportsmanship and teamwork. Tennis presents a learning opportunity, for children and adults, to take part in aRDU Tennis, Tennis Classes/Camp in Raleigh, NC competitive sport in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Playing doubles will also require communication and working together with your teammate.
  3. Tennis is a social sport. It’s an easy way to meet new people and gives you a fun activity to participate in together.
  4. It can provide opportunities for your future. Beyond just meeting new people, you may find that playing tennis opens doors in the business world. When networking with other professionals, playing tennis gives you common ground and an occasion to get to know the other person better.
  5. It’s fun!  You can’t deny the enjoyment that comes from playing a sport with another person. You’ll likely forget you are even exercising while you do it!

Now that you’ve heard some of the great benefits that come from playing tennis, you may be wondering how to get involved. RDU Tennis clinics are a perfect place to start! We host dozens and clinics and classes all over North Carolina.

Our clinics are open to the public and are specifically geared towards beginner and intermediate players. The goal is to give new players a place to learn the game where they feel comfortable and not intimated by more experienced players.

RDU Tennis offers one-hour weekly clinics that last for eight weeks and are open to both children and adults. We also hold track-out camps during the week for students in year-round schools in Wake and Durham County.

We have more than 30 locations across the state and are adding new ones all the time, so visit rdutennis.net/dev to find a clinic or camp near you. Camps and clinics start mid-March, but dates and times also vary by location.

 

Tennis is the Perfect Activity for the Summer

The air is getting warmer, the grass is getting greener, and flowers are blooming. It can only mean one thing…summer is upon us.  If you’re a parent, you know that means the kids will be on a long break soon. It’s important to make sure they have activities that keep them active and not cooped up in the house. You want your kids to have fun, but also be involved in an activity where they’re engaged and still learning new skills.

A great option for this is tennis. It gets kids moving and helps them learn. Playing tennis has a number of benefits, including improving coordination and flexibility and teaching tactical thinking skills. Plus, learning to play tennis is a life-long activity your kids may very well learn to love and take into adulthood.RDU Tennis in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill

RDU Tennis offers tennis camps and clinics at more than 30 locations all over North Carolina. We provide an environment that’s fun and encouraging for kids of all ages and skill-levels to learn the game of tennis and feel better about themselves. Our camps and clinics are focused on teaching basic tennis skills and having fun as opposed to competition. Our participants range in skill level from beginner to intermediate, and our coaches will base the clinics on the skill level of our participants.

RDU Tennis is open to the public, but we like to keep our classes small to give more personal, individualized attention. You get the private club service without the private club prices. Our summer camps run four or five days during the week. They include snack breaks and recreational swimming at many of the locations for your kids to cool off and have even more fun after a day of learning new tennis skills.

By the way, RDU Tennis is not just for kids. We offer adult clinics for players of all skill levels to develop their abilities and have a lot of fun.

With more than 30 locations throughout the state, chances are we offer clinics and camps in your area. Visitrdutennis.net/dev for locations and information on how to sign up.

Also, new this year, RDU Tennis is excited to partner up in 2014 with Davis Lake Club in North Charlotte, Brunswick Co Parks and Recreation, Cameronwood Swim and Racquet Club in South Charlotte, and Olive Chapel Club in Apex.

What is Quickstart Tennis?

RDUTennis offers Quickstart Tennis training at most locations.   Email brian@rdutennis.net/dev to learn more about this tennis dynamic, alongside which RDUTennis locations offer this service.

About QuickStart Tennis

QuickStart Tennis is an innovative new play format that will help to get more children 10 years of age and under into the game.

QuickStart Tennis appropriately scales down all aspects of regulation tennis—including equipment, court dimensions, and scoring—so that the game becomes specifically tailored to their age and size.

The format is broken out into two age groupings, for children ages 10-under and for those who are 8-under, similar to models used successfully in other youth sports (such as youth baseball).

Children eight and under will play on a 36’ x 18’ court, with the length of the court equaling the width of a regulation tennis court. Racquets will be up to 23” in size, making them easier to control than larger-sized racquets.

The balls, either a foam ball or a very low compression ball, will also match the abilities of the child, bouncing lower and traveling less distance. This will enable the child to have proper swing technique, with the ball bouncing into their “comfort zones.”
