Day Off from School “Match Play” Pizza Parties
New Format with More Match Play!
For Players 8 Years Old and Up
Join us for our new “Match Play” Pizza Parties for players 8 years old and up. Parties will be scheduled when schools have a day off, normally 1:00-4:00pm. Round-robin competitions will be set up at each ability and age level to provide match play experience. We hope to prepare our new players for team tennis and tournament play. Advanced beginner players must be able at least to serve and keep score for a game. More competitive match play takes place with the older and more advanced players, so a good time is had by ALL! This is a wonderful opportunity to try out a new skill (new serve, slice backhand, net play…) and learn to compete. It’s also a great way to meet new friends and have FUN!

2016 USTA Early Development Camps
For Players Age 7 to 10
|Maryland EDC Camp #2
Saturday, October 8, 2016, 1:30-6:00pm
|Maryland EDC Camp #3

Early Development Camps (EDCs) are an initiative developed by USTA National Coaches that focus on dedicated 7 to 10-year-old players. The goal is to bring together the top players in a local area for intensive half day Orange Ball training sessions. EDC Orange Ball Camp themes are Expert Rallyer, Net Dominator and All-Court Player. Serve & return training are incorporated into all camps.
Orange ball tennis (including ball, racket and court size), fosters learning in young players that proportionately mimics larger/older players on a full-size court. Ball-bounce height, number of steps to reach a ball, depth of shots, and shot patterns all shadow a larger scale platform. This is one of the most critical stages of training and the Section encourages young players to practice and play orange ball tennis for as long as possible.
