Junior School Holiday Programme

Holiday Programmes

Albany Tennis Park school holiday programme is a fun half-day programme, where kids make friends on the court and better their tennis abilities.

We focus on maintaining the level of each child by putting them in a specific group based on their age and ability, each coach knows what they need to do to help the child succeed and on the last day of Holiday Camp (Friday) we run a mini-tournament round-robin style.

For more information and booking phone (09) 414-5530 ext: 2 or e-mail office@tennisnorthern.co.nz
