Cal Lutheran Tennis Camp

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.— The Cal Lutheran tennis program is hosting a summer camp, on July 17-21, for boys and girls ages five to 18 interested in improving their skills and learning from nationally and internationally accomplished coaches Mike Gennette and Jerry Yu.

The five-day camp separates athletes based on age and skill level, guiding them through daily dynamic warm-ups, modern stroke technique training, footwork, strategy, mental coaching, competition and more.
