Men’s Tennis Announces 2014 Summer Camps

UK Tennis 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (6/2/14) — After another successful season as head coach of the University of Kentucky men’s tennis team, Cedric Kauffmann and assistant coach Matt Emery announced the dates and features of the 2014 Wildcats Sumer Tennis Camps Sunday.

UK Tennis Camp will continue to provide campers with the best instruction focusing on basic fundamentals, technique, footwork and match play. All campers will continue to receive the Wildcats’ court instruction from our returning world-class staff.

The camp curriculum covers all aspects of tennis with players grouped according to both age and ability. At the camps, the staff will work with the campers on their forehands, volley, approach shots, backhands, serves, overheads, service return, drop shots and feature all of this in match play format.

Morning camps will run for campers 8-18 years old and will run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Morning campers will check in at the Boone Center June 15 and July 13, from 4 - 5 p.m. with a tennis evaluation from 6-8 p.m. that evening.

Also targeted for kids 8-18 years old is the Wildcat Day Camp, which will run from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Hilary J. Boone Varsity Tennis Complex. Day campers will check in at the Boone Center June 15, July 13, from 4 - 5 p.m. with a tennis evaluation from 6-8 p.m. that evening.

The overnight camp will also run alongside the morning camp and the day camp, and is aimed for students who are 12 to 18 years old. Overnight campers will check in at the Hilary Boone Indoor Tennis Center on either Sunday, June 15 or Sunday, July 13 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Please note that to be eligible for overnight camps, the camper must be 12 years or older on the first day of the camp to be eli-gible.

General Information

Mission Statement
We hope to provide a positive, learning environment in which the camper can learn fundamentals, individual skills, and competitive skills if they want to advance their game to the next competitive level. Additionally, we want to expose the campers to instructors and players who have been successful on the NAIA, Division I, and professional level. The camper’s growth as a player and person is important to us while spending the week at Wildcat Tennis Camp.

Facilities and Parking
The Dr. H.H. Downing Outdoor Tennis Complex, and the 9-court Hilary J. Boone Varsity Tennis Stadium Complex, is the facility for the Wildcat Tennis Camp. It is located off of Cooper Drive in Lexington, across from the Lexington Community College. One of the nation’s finest indoor collegiate facilities, the Boone Indoor Center, houses the Wildcat Tennis Hall of Fame and serves as the headquarters for the camp. All registration will take place Indoors. The parking lot to the right of Sports Center Drive is available during the summer for you to park and walk your camper to the Indoors Building. Paid parking is also available in the new parking garage adjacent to the tennis courts. You may enter the Boone Center off of the grass facing Cooper or come down the sidewalk (Complex Drive) and enter by crossing the outdoor tennis courts.

Trainer
A University of Kentucky trainer will be a member of our full-time staff and will stay in the dorm with our campers. Please notify our trainer at check-in of any special health concerns you may have.

Equipment
The camp will only use regular ball for all ages.
