The object of the Brady Tennis Camp is to have fun while learning the game of tennis. The Bradys feel the experience one gains with the enjoyment of tennis will last a lifetime. Personal attention is a high priority at Brady Tennis Camp. The goal is to send each camper home with a new enthusiasm for tennis and a better understanding of their game. All levels are represented: Novice, Satellite, Open, and High School players are grouped in levels of similar ability for instruction and match play. Instruction and drills will be tailored to meet the needs of every ability level. A written evaluation will be given to each camper at the conclusion of camp.

Junior Camp Sessions
One week sessions for juniors begin on Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. and conclude on Friday at 11:30 a.m. The format is similar to the adult sessions. Juniors (14 and older) may attend adult sessions if accompanied by a parent/guardian. Activities with the counselors will be planned over the weekend for juniors who are staying for additional weeks.
Campers will be staying at Tropicana Garden. Juniors will share dorm rooms with campers of similar age and gender. Meals are buffet style at the facility and include a salad bar. Camp counselors and designated dorm parents reside in the same building. Curfews and rules are strictly enforced. The dorms are safe and secure facilities. Campers will be playing at university courts and other tennis facilities in the local area when needed.
Transportation is complimentary to and from Santa Barbara Airport and Goleta train station. Call the camp office at (310) 798-0333 to make arrangements.

The Bradys believe the mental part of the game is just as important as the strokes and also helps kids/parents with life lessons. Dr. Virgil Brady, author of "The Score is Love All," will give seminars throughout the week to campers as well as offer a free workshop to all parents on the closing day helping parent/child communication and motivation in sports.
