The Valter Paiva Tennis Academy Summer Junior Tennis Camp is open to players aged 5-18. Everyone from the beginner to the advanced player is encouraged to attend. All camps are taught by USPTA-certified coaches and Valter Paiva personally oversees the Camp Program. Enrollment is limited to ensure the highest standard of individual attention. Please enroll well in advance to secure a spot.


The most important highlight of Valter Paiva Summer Tennis Camp is that the kids HAVE LOTS OF FUN while DISCOVERING AND ENJOYING THE GAME OF TENNIS. THE SPORT OF A LIFE TIME! Beginners will be taught the fundamentals of tennis. The intermediate players will work on developing solid ground strokes, serves and volleys. The advanced juniors will focus on fine-tuning their overall game by simulating pressure situations during game-like settings. Good sportsmanship and a positive attitude are strongly encouraged. Participants will have daily refreshments break consisting of Gatorade, water and NRG food bars and prizes will be awarded on Friday including one Wilson Jr. tennis racket to a lucky camper.

Summer Tennis Camp Format

We use an exciting NEW play format for learning tennis. It is designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing specialized equipment (racquets, balls and net height).

  • Specialized Equipment for Kids

  • Shorter Court Dimensions

  • Rackets That Fit Kids Hands

  • Slow-Bounce Tennis Balls

Shorter court dimensions and modified scoring all tailored to age and size. Kids can start playing at a very early age. Balls bounce lower, don’t move as faster through the air, and are easier to hit.

  • Ideal for 5-8 Year Olds

  • Kids Learn the Fundamentals

  • Kids Play Real Tennis

  • More Fun and Less Frustration
