We are very pleased to announce our plan for the summer holidays. We will be bringing back our popular junior holiday tennis camps that have been redesigned with COVID safety measures. We will be running half-day camps for kids aged 4 to 18 at Cheam Lawn Tennis Club.

However, this Summer, there will be a maximum of 6 players per group/coach. Players have to stay in a bubble with their coach. Places for camps will be very limited so you will need to book early to secure a place for your child.
