General Camp Information

The Paley Tennis Camp is designed to fit the needs of players between the ages of 8 and 18. It is a Co-Ed Program, created to challenge campers from a beginner level to those that are nationally ranked. The camp prepares players for high school and tournament play and focuses on all aspects of game development.

In addition to training High School Varsity players of all levels, we added a special curriculum to help Junior Varsity players better prepare for the High School season.

“We are very pleased to say that the 2019 Paley Tennis Camp was a very successful summer of Tennis! They played a lot of very competitive, high level tennis with many of the former boys and girls state high school champions in attendance, as well as many top ranked players in all age divisions. We were also very excited to have top ranked juniors from Spain at the camp. The evenings were also a lot of fun with a wide variety of different activities. We’re all very excited about this coming year and can’t wait to see you on the courts next summer!"

Chema Martín de Oliva“I visited Paley Camp last summer, it has been a great experience, as I've grown up as a tennis player and as a human being. Andy and Jim have been more than trainers: they have been my friends, my counselors, and my guides. They have showed me the way american people think about tennis. People in the camp, were so good to me!! Boys and girls of all ages.... I've made sincere friendships.”

Juan Pablo Canas Garcia“Have been the best two weeks of the summer, I am very happy, I have learned many things. I think it's always good to know different "cultures of tennis." I got a lot of positives from this trip, the people are charming at Paley Tennis Camp. I hope to have a chance to go again.”

- Juan Pablo Canas Garcia
