K-State Women's Tennis Camp Information

MANHATTAN, Kan. –
Kansas State women’s tennis coach Steve Bietau will host four camp sessions during the upcoming summer months. The four sessions will be held for a variety of age groups and will begin on June 6. All camps will be conducted at the K-State Recreation Center tennis courts.

The first, second and third camp sessions, QuickStart Camp I, II and III, will be for children ages 5-6, 7-9 and 10-11. These camps will begin on June 6 and conclude on June 9. The cost for either session is $35. The QuickStart Camp I will meet from 8 a.m. until 8:45 a.m. The QuickStart Camp II will meet from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m., and the QuickStart Camp III will meet from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

QuickStart tennis is a new format to help kids 11 and under learn and play the game. To make it easier for them, the court sizes, the racquet sizes, the ball, the scoring system and even the net heights have all been adjusted to help the age group learn the game.

The fourth session, High School Girls Camp, will be conducted on August 1-4 and will include two daily sessions from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m., with a break for lunch followed again with a second session from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. The cost for this camp is $95.

The High School Camp is for players who are beginning to compete and anticipate playing on their high school team. The camp will focus on developing sound strokes, conditioning, and patterns of play for both singles and doubles competition.
