**We are excited to announce that for this Summer we will offer again our campers a multi-sport camp option at our Avon Old Farms location only. Same as last year, the multi-sport camp includes a combination of tennis, soccer and/or basketball.

Campers may choose from any of the following multi sport combinations: Option 1: Tennis & Soccer, Option 2: Tennis & Basketball or Option 3: Tennis, Soccer & Basketball. The multi sport camp is available for day and overnight campers at Avon Old Farms. Campers may choose to sign up for one or both of the offered weeks.

We are hoping to share the love for the game of tennis and all sports with those players who may want to play or learn tennis but prefer a balanced curriculum with other sports. Thus, we have introduced a new program, which will combine tennis, soccer and basketball into one multi sport camp option. We will be using on campus facilities for all sports, and the basketball courts are located inside the air conditioned Field House of  the Brown Student Center building.

Our soccer and basketball programs are instructional based and are designed for developing players of differing ages and levels. Each multi-sport camper will receive daily training in all three sports that will include skills, drills, game play and conditioning.

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.
