Chilliwack Tennis Society holds court with summer camps

Following return-to-play protocols, the tennis group has camps running each week in July and August

The Chilliwack Tennis Society is returning to action with a full slate of summer camps starting in early July.

Programs are available for all ages, starting with an intermediate camp that runs July 6-10 for children ages 5-12 who have taken tennis lessons in the past.

Adults hit the court at Watson Glen Park (5727 Tyson Road) the following week (July 13-17) for a FAST camp. FAST stands for Fun Adult Starter Tennis, which introduces the basic fundamentals of play as well as rules and scoring.
