Tennis Camp is Back!

Tennis Camp is Back!

On July 3, 2017 the Hartnell College Softball Head coach Andrew Watt hosted the Annual Tennis Summer Camp. The camp welcomed about 20 campers, ages 7 to 14 years old. “This camp has become a family tradition; my wife Cathy, my daughter, and my son have been part of the camps since I started working here at Hartnell,” explained, Softball Head Coach Andy Watt. During the camp, kids learned fundamentals of tennis, such as forehand, block hand and smash. Due to the size of the camp, children were able to have more one –on-one coaching from volunteers as well as plenty of practice time. “I’d like to keep this camp small, just because in tennis, practice is very important to getting the hang of the game. If we had more volunteers, I would be happy to expand the camp,” Continued Coach Watt. This co-ed camp was well balanced by having a good amount of boys and girls. We encourage high school seniors to participate in these camps and earn community service hours. We are proud to offer this type of camp since there is very little emphasis on tennis in our area. We hope to see more campers next year. Go Panthers!
