Friendship Tennis Academy

Welcome to Friendship Tennis Academy!  We are proud to offer private and group tennis lessons to children and adults of all ages and levels. Our 4 hard-surface tennis courts are located in a beautiful wooded area in the heart of Camp Friendship. You will enjoy a great game of doubles or a private lesson from our pros in this peaceful outdoor environment.

Our Courtside Pro Shop is fully stocked with tennis rackets and balls available for groups and individuals when at camp. The concrete backboard is available for anyone who wishes to practice their game against the wall.
