Camp Co-ordinator

The 2019 camp co-ordinator Laura Valettas.  As a junior, Laura played competitive tennis and she has completed the Tennis Canada Instructors course.  Currently she is studying Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa.

Tennis Instruction

Tennis lessons will include a variety of drills appropriate for the age and skill level of the campers. Each day of camp will focus on a different tennis skill. On Monday, the campers will be introduced to the rules of tennis, practice foundational tennis skills, and learn the forehand shot. Tuesday will see the campers learning their backhand shots, followed by volleys on Wednesday. Thursday will focus on overhead shots and the service. The week wraps up with a round-robin style doubles tournament, which allows the campers to put all they have learned through the week to practice.

ETC Camp Refund Policy

If a request for a full refund to withdraw from the Elmdale Tennis Camp is presented more than 7 days prior to the start date of the camp then a full refund will be given.  If less than a week’s notice is given, then each case will be handled individually.  The ETC is committed to providing a 7:1 or lower counsellor/camper ratio.  Consequently, the decision to provide a full refund with less than 7 days notice will depend, in part (there may be other factors), on the cost of the club to engage staff to maintain this ratio on a weekly basis.

The club is committed to actioning refunds as quickly as possible.


If there is rain during the week which stops campers from getting out on the courts, the camp still happens and the campers will be given a ‘guest pass’ to use to come play for free at a later date.  There are no refunds because of rain.
