BAYTOWN, TX — The Lee College tennis courts have been filled since June with dozens of children and teens running drills and playing games to increase their skills and knowledge of the sport — and there is still time to register youths 5-16 years old for the last remaining tennis camps of the summer.

Tennis summer camps run weekly, with the final camps set to begin Aug. 15 at the Lee College Tennis Center on Market Street. Parents can select from a half-day option that runs from 8:30 a.m.-noon, or a full-day option that runs from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. and includes lunch. Students are divided into groups according to their age and skill level, with the goal of improving their overall athletic ability and sharpening their fundamentals to make them more successful tennis players.

Tennis campers spend their week on the court enjoying a variety of different activities that enhance their conditioning, coordination and footwork. Participants run relay races, practice strokes and compete in matches against their peers. Care is also taken to ensure that the campers stay hydrated and get plenty of rest in the Texas heat. In addition to the youth summer camps, Tennis Professional Rob Coles also offers year-round after-school and private lessons for both children and adults.
