This camp is now complete.


Taking place on Brown University’s historic campus and directed by Paul Wardlaw, Brown's Head Women's tennis coach, Wardlaw Elite Camps Camps offers a camp that is the epitome of the “College Experience.”

TRADITIONAL CAMPS
The Traditional camps (Sessions I & II ) are for boys and girls ages 12-18 of all skill levels. This camp will offer a comprehensive training program focusing on how to play, stroke production, and swing technique for all levels. The goal of the camp is to continue a player’s development while immersing campers in a competitive, challenging and fun tennis environment.

Our traditional tennis camps (non match-play or college prep) are designed to focus on the fundamentals and swing techniques of the modern tennis strokes. Some of the areas focus for each level include:

  • Beginners: The beginning level player will be introduced to the basics of the game. Emphasis will be placed on stroke production and the technical aspects of the swing in an effort to teach these young players sound fundamentals from the ground up.
  • Intermediate: Intermediate level players will also focus on fundamental stroke production (to ensure proper technique), but will also be in put into game play situations to introduce these players to the competitive side of the game.
  • Advanced: The more advanced players will work with stroke production in a competitive environment, but will also be introduced to the basic strategies of the game.
  • High School / Tournament: Varsity high school and tournament players will focus on the strategic and competitive aspects of the game. Although there will be attention spent on the stroke fundamentals, more emphasis will be placed on point progression, court positioning, patterns and sequences, percentage plays and live ball drill work.



    Instruction takes place on Brown’s eight-court Varsity Tennis Complex and Brown’s four-court indoor facility housed in the Pizzitola Athletic Center. All twelve courts are US Open-style and tennis instruction is guaranteed rain or shine.

    Highlights of the Brown University camp include:
  • 5.5-6 hours of tennis daily
  • Comprehensive instructional program with daily teaching progressions
  • Small instructional groups to ensure individual attention.
  • Social and Recreational activities daily
