Bethpage Park Tennis Center Summer Tennis Camp
99 Quaker Meeting House Road, Building #4
The 2021 Summer Junior Tennis Program at Bethpage Park Tennis Center, where Safety, Enjoyment, Value and Improvement is at the forefront. Our 10-week Summer Junior Tennis Program begins on Monday, June 21, and runs consecutively every weekday through Friday, August 27.
We offer two sessions daily: a morning session from 9 a.m.-12:15 p.m., and an afternoon session from 1 p.m.-4:15 p.m. with limited enrollment for each session. For the many players who stay full day, we are offering an optional specialized package which will maximize improvement opportunities in a quality and result-driven program. Based on last year’s highly successful and safe summer we are continuing several new policies that will maintain the highest degree of safety standards for both staff and players alike.
Among these are a daily comprehensive disinfecting of the facility; use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all players and staff and active player and staff social distancing. Other safety measures are still in development and will continue to be as needed. As an extra measure of safety for our players and staff, food and water will no longer be provided. Please make sure to bring your own snacks, lunches, towels and have plenty of fluids to drink. Also, for the current Summer Junior Tennis Program transportation services are suspended.
At Bethpage Park Tennis, we have two large air conditioned structures with four courts in each as well as two outdoor courts. All 10 courts have been allocated to our Summer Junior Tennis Program to ensure that social distancing rules are followed and maintained. With our programs enrollment limitations, our safety policies as well as our commitment to the health and safety of all, our Summer Junior Tennis Program will be one of its kind.
Sport-based programs like ours should be fun and as stress free as possible during these unprecedented times. We have a great staff of full-time teaching professionals as well as top college players, all of whom have been with us for many years. With our experienced and successful coaching staff, our plentiful courts and the safe nurturing environment for which we have been known, our Summer Junior Tennis Program players will remain active and smiling.
For over 40 years, our junior program has provided the best learning environment to develop top student-athletes. Our record of development with our long-time students including 20 players ranked #1 nationally, numerous ATP, WTA and NCAA champions, and over 2000 nationally ranked players is unrivaled and unprecedented for a single facility that is not a massive academy. As enrollment is limited, act soon to ensure a spot.

Windridge Tennis and Sports Camps
1215 Roxbury Road
Windridge ... a tradition of tennis, soccer, horseback riding and golf for over 50 years. Located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Windridge Tennis and Sports Camp stands unique in that they feature specialized sports programs within the framework of a traditional New England camp setting.
Since 1968, children have come to Windridge from most of the 50 states and more than 30 countries to share in the Windridge experience. Campers make a commitment to hard work, good sportsmanship, and wholesome fun and laughter, within a warm and friendly environment.
Windridge offers two-week and three-week coed sessions from June through August, serving ages seven through 15. Windridge’s 4:1 camper-to-counselor ratio is an important factor in its warm and nurturing environment. In addition, we offer 10-day Rookie Camps for 7-10-year-old first-time campers.
Windridge offers “majors” in tennis, soccer, riding and golf. Campers will develop skills in their chosen major each day while rounding out their schedule with electives like mountain biking, archery, basketball, volleyball, arts and crafts, and more. Windridge adds to this a wide variety of exceptional evening activities and special events, such as Carnival Day and Teela-Games to create a well-rounded experience for each camper.
