The difference between tennis camps and tennis schools
Depending on where you are with your tennis, you might be considering both women's tennis camps and tennis schools. Here are some distinctions to keep in mind between the two.
You can find information on college tennis camps online, and we highly recommend that you research any potential camp in depth before you sign up for it. You should ask questions like:
- Who will be instructing the women's tennis camps day-to-day?
- How long will the tennis camps last, and how much will they cost? Will that fit into your family's plans for the summer?
- What do you hope to gain from attending the tennis camp? Would you prefer a college tennis camp experience that focuses more on getting you confident on the court, or one that will give you intense instruction in specific aspects of the game?
While you have the choice of attending women's tennis camps that might last a couple hours each day or overnight for a week at a time (which can be a great chance to experience what life is like on a college campus), some players might also be interested in tennis schools (e.g. IMG Academy). At tennis schools, women's tennis players receive in-depth instruction in the sport while also preparing for college in a preparatory school environment. Typically, tennis schools offer low student-to-faculty and player-to-coach ratios—but a variety of factors may weigh in on whether tennis schools, as opposed to college tennis camps, will be right for your family.
Major women’s tennis tournaments
Tennis tournaments provide recruits opportunities to play year-round and range from single-day to multi-day events with both singles and doubles competitive play. When selecting which tournaments a recruit will attend, she should evaluate how well her skill level matches with the competition and what tournament college coach typically attend. Once a recruit has identified a list of tournaments that meet her needs, it’s time to register.
After a recruit registers for a tennis tournament, she should notify college coaches that she will be competing at the tournament. When the tournament is over, recruits should update their NCSA Recruiting Profile with any new achievements or stats and reach out to college coaches to let them know about their tournament performance.
