A Family Orientated Tennis Club in Finchley Central

The Avenue Tennis Club Holiday Camp Logo

Junior Holiday Camps - 2020

Run by our Head Coach Sally Bentley

Please note that day bookings are not accepted on the Friday.

Individual days MUST be paid for BEFORE the day.

Extended Hours
We run an 'Extended Hours' programme so that children can be dropped off at 09.00 and picked up at 16.00 instead of the normal camp times which are 10.00 to 15.00. During the extended hours, the children can play table tennis, table football or enjoy some quiet creative activities in the clubhouse, as well as play tennis.

Booking & Paying by Card
We are using the LTA 'Clubspark' system for booking and taking Credit & Debit Card payments.

The 'Book' button will take you to the Clubspark website where you will be asked to create an account, unless you already have one.

Once your account has been created you will never be required to re-enter your information when using this booking system.

Please Note
When creating your Clubspark account use your own name and then add your child as a player.

Avenue Member Discount
A 5% discount is available for Avenue Tennis Club members and this will be deducted from the full amount at the booking stage.

Payment by Childcare Vouchers
If you wish to pay by Child Care Vouchers, please follow the instructions further down this page.

Single Days
Single days must be booked before the day so that the appropriate number of coaches are available.

If your child cannot attend due to social arrangements or ill health, the day still has to be paid for as extra coaches are hired to accommodate player numbers on these days.

What will my child be doing?
Children learn and practice a different shot for each of the first four days. Each day includes FUNdamentals, technical, tactical and physical development, as well as team games and match play.

On the final day, all children will compete in a tournament and they will be presented with personalized certificates and prizes.

How many children will be in a group?
There will be a maximum ratio of coaches to children of 1:6 (often better!) Although children will be in their small groups for some activities, groups may merge for certain games.

Does my child need to have played tennis before?
The camp is open to players of all levels including complete beginners. Groups will be split according to ability as well as age and so every child should feel comfortable in their group.

Will my child only play tennis?
The camp is a tennis camp rather than a multi sports course, although there may be opportunities to play other games. At lunchtimes, staff will arrange other activities such as football, rounders and arts and crafts. 

What does my child need to wear?
Loose, comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Because the club has brand new court surfaces, all players must wear flat soled tennis shoes.

What does my child need to bring?
Packed lunch, plenty of water, cap and sun tan cream if appropriate. Rackets can be provided although many children bring their own. Please do not send your children with food that contains nuts or nut traces.

Who are the coaches?
All my coaches are LTA qualified coaches. All hold a recent Criminal Records check and all hold first aid certificates.

Payment by Childcare Vouchers
Sally accepts Childcare Vouchers, so please let her know which Childcare Voucher provider your employer uses.

This is what you need to do:

1. Book the camp via this website using a card.

2. Then using your Child Care Vouchers, pay the same amount again plus £5 admin fee.

3. Send the confirmation that the vouchers have been paid to Sally with the addition £5 and she will refund your first payment via the website. (You only need to do this the first time that you register with Sally at The Avenue Tennis Club, after that if you want to use vouchers, you can just tell Sally the time/day/week/course that you require and she will register your child manually and then all you do is pay with the vouchers.  You must however always send the confirmation of the voucher payment) 

4. The sooner you use the vouchers, the sooner the refund is made.

All the different providers have their own unique systems, so these are the policy/reference details that you require for each provider.

Guest Fees
If the player is not a member of The Avenue Tennis Club there is a small quest fee for all camps held at The Avenue, this is included in the price of the camp for non-members.

Day Bookings
Please note that day bookings are not accepted for Fridays and have to be paid for before the day.

Bad Behaviour
Bad behaviour will not be tolerated and children will be asked to leave a course with no refund, if behavior does not improve following a warning.

Cancellation Policy
Camps cancelled before the camp starts will be subject to a 20% cancellation fee.

Camps cancelled during a camp will receive no refund.

Bad Weather
In the event of bad weather, the camp will take shelter in the club pavilion and play table tennis or board games inside. If it is light drizzle or showers we will stay outdoors as long as it is safe. Therefore please dress suitably.

Refunds will not be given if a day is missed due to your decision not to attend, including parties, travel, holidays, illness and religious festivals. Also please do not ask if your child can do a 'make up' session due to a missed session. This cannot be done as I keep all sessions within the LTA player/coach ratio guidelines. You would not be happy if two extra people kept turning up for one of your child's sessions thus upping the ratio.
