Frequently Asked Questions
I know how to hit well, but can I learn how to win?
You can with good strategy! It is one thing to be able to hit the ball well, quite another to know how to win a match. We will show you ways to win with court positioning, ball placement and proper shot selection.
I have never played before. Will I enjoy your camp?
No need to worry. By the end of your holiday you will be startled at your improvement. We often take the beginner to long rallies and a good understanding of strategy by week's end.
I am an advanced player. What can I learn?
We won't tear your game apart... but, will help you improve what you already have. Instruction is easily geared to the stronger player with emphasis on use of spins, approach shots, more involved strategy and hitting time with the pros.
Will I be able to physically handle the camp?
Our tennis camp is not boot camp! Our soft clay courts and varied program of coaching, drilling, video, strategies and play, keep up the levels of enthusiasm and energy. Our flexibility also gives the hard core enthusiast the workout he or she needs.
I'm coming alone. Will I be out of place?
About half of all our campers come alone. In fact, many come to meet new people with similar interests. In the evenings we eat dinner as a group (or not, if you prefer a quiet meal) so you will never feel uncomfortable or left out.
What if it rains?
No problem! Very few camps offer you indoor courts and full recreational facilities as at Clay Brook in Sugarbush, Vermont.
What is there to do after camp?
Tennis matches are arranged after camp. Hiking, biking, swimming in clear mountain rivers, lakes, gliding, golf, shopping, antiquing, craft fairs, chair lift rides, concerts, the theater, dancing, etc, etc... And of course just relaxing is another option..
