At Faulk Training Camps we offer five 4-day camps for players of all levels. Whether you are looking to learn the basics of tennis or you are trying to reach a higher level of competitive ability, this is the camp for you.

All camps are held at the Janet Swanson Tennis Center on the beautiful campus of Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA located just 40 minutes south of downtown Pittsburgh.

This 4-day camp will enhance the technical and physical abilities of each player. Students will take part in fast-paced drills as well as rigorous, tennis-specific fitness drills during the 3-hour session (9:00am-12:00pm) giving them a look at the benefits of college-level training camps. Students will come away from camp with a new knowledge of how to keep themselves in top physical shape and a confidence in their technical abilities that they have never before experienced. 

This is an ideal camp for intermediate and advanced players who currently participate in club clinics but want a bit of variation in their training. The challenges presented in this camp will help players more quickly advance to a higher level of play.

All campers will receive a Faulk Training Camps t-shirt (youth sizes available). Snacks and drinks will be provided by camp staff.
