**Multi-Sport Camp

Mulit sport is the perfect option for the camper who is interested in improving their tennis but does not want to spend all day every day on the tennis courts. This year we have changed our multi sport component to adapt to the ever changing needs and interests of our campers.

For those who have enrolled in the multi sport camp, we will be offering various sports throughout the week in an air conditioned gym. These will be done approximately 2 hours per day and some of the sports may include basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer and others.

Campers will train at the Globe Foundation Tennis complex which overlooks AOF's baseball and other amazing athletic facilities. You will be training on nine state of the art hard courts with ample room between courts and spectacular areas for viewing match play.

The coaches were awesome at the adidas Tennis Camp at Avon Old Farms School. Coach Filipek had collegiate players that we got to compete against during beat the pro. It was a great challenge and look forward to returning to camp.

Great camp with a very low camper to coach ratio. Seemed like everyone was getting personal attention when it came to their strokes.
