Lafayette Tennis Camp will not be open as part of DC Phase 2 Opening because of DPR permit limitations. If and when Mayor Bowser allows us reopen the camp later in the summer, the new camp format will be two half day camps:
You may register to "hold" a spot in the new camps.
Full Day Camp starts at 9:00AM and ends at 4:00PM.For families with working parents we offer optional Pre-Camp Care (7:30AM - 9:00AM) and Post-Camp Care (4:00PM - 6:00PM) for an additional fee.
Half Day Camp from (9:00AM - Noon) is also available. The camp will be using the two upper tennis courts at the Lafayette Recreation Center at 33rd and Quesada Sts., NW. Players will learn to play tennis through shot drills, games and tennis matches appropriate for their skill level. Fitness, strengthening and flexibility will be worked into the tennis activities. Video analysis of players' strokes will be done to help them know how they are hitting the tennis ball.
PRIMARY CAMP GOALS - to help a player improve their tennis skills during the camp and have FUN while doing it with the other kids.
How will we keep cool in the sizzling Washington heat?
