Private instruction and 90-minute clinics are offered daily. Camps and one- through seven-day programs are available.

Resident students/families/teams stay at the historic Grassmere Inn, located on quiet, tree-lined Beach Lane in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., only 50 yards from the beginning of the charming village, yet less than one mile from a beautiful ocean beach. The location could not be better. The Grassmere has 22 guest rooms, all with air conditioning, WiFi, cable television and private bathrooms. Ideal for families, are two suites or interconnected rooms. A delicious breakfast of fresh muffins, bagels, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, tea, milk and yogurt is included daily.

The Tennis Academy, located three miles away, is primarily a teaching center featuring 12 soft courts. We have welcomed participants from over 25 countries and 30 states since 2000. The Academy features an enthusiastic staff, renowned for its high-quality instruction and low student-to-staff ratio. The maximum ratio is 4:1, but the average ratio is 2:1.

Thirty-five Japanese juniors have been coming for three weeks annually, for the last eight years. They run three miles before breakfast and then 10 hours of instruction, running and matches. However, most participants seek a less intensive program, taking three to five hours of instruction daily. The staff is always accommodating and happy to tailor programs to fit the needs of the customer. Frequently, an adult team will come at the beginning of the season and return for a family vacation. There are also tennis pros who bring groups. The Academy’s staff is available to supplement visiting pros staff. The groups always have an incredible time, some having returned for 10 consecutive years. Tennis during the day, a trip to the beach in the late afternoon, perhaps a glass of wine at sunset, and then dining at a great restaurant, a movie or a show at the Performing Arts Center. Occasionally, guests are coaxed into karaoke with the international staff!

Our intensive SPORTIME EXCEL Summer Training Camp, located at SPORTIME Randall’s Island, SPORTIME’s flagship site and the NYC home of the John McEnroe Tennis Academy, is specifically designed for players competing in or striving to compete in USTA Sectional, USTA National and ITF tournaments, and those interested in playing high school tennis, college tennis and beyond. Our world-class JMTA tennis and performance directors and coaches carefully evaluate EXCEL students, place them in small age and level appropriate groups, and customize programs to meet their developmental needs. All levels are welcome!

The EXCEL Summer Training Camp will be directed by JMTA Director Lawrence Kleger, JMTA Associate Directors Nate Emge and Felix Alvarado, and Camp Director Greg Evans. In addition, EXCEL will be staffed by other JMTA Assistant Directors, and by our world class JMTA tennis and athletic training coaches. 

Program curriculum and philosophy
The EXCEL curriculum features a combination of drills, technical coaching, match play, off-court athletic and cross-training, and mental toughness training, specifically tailored to the ages and levels of each EXCEL player group. Our coaching approach is positive, encouraging and motivating, as we believe this approach produces the best short-term and long-term results, and maximizes players’ enjoyment of the sport. Our curriculum is designed to develop players, not great hitters with beautiful strokes who cannot compete and/or win. We carefully balance technical stroke development with development of tactical and strategic proficiency so our players “EXCEL” in competition. Developing competitive tennis players is not just about the technical, the tactical and on-court training. We integrate mental toughness and off-court athletic development training into the EXCEL program to develop complete players—stronger, fitter, faster and smarter.

This summer, train where top American players like JMTA’s Noah Rubin, Jamie Loeb, and Madison Battaglia, Oliver Sec, Sabrina Xiong and Jessica Golovin train—SPORTIME EXCEL!

The West Side Tennis Club’s Summer Camp offers top notch coaching at the most historic tennis venue in the U.S. Led by former touring pro Bob Ingersole, who has coached numerous sectional, national and professional players, our program outlines the “Road to Success.” Former home of the U.S. Open, the Club still maintains grass, hard, red clay and Har-Tru courts. Each day, campers receive three hours of instruction from our certified staff. Our 10 & Under program is an innovative way to start children off on the right foot. Using graduated-length racquets, low compression balls and smaller nets, we can immediately increase their success rate which makes learning tennis more fun.

West Side’s Tournament Training Program was created to meet the needs of the top players in the area. Gus Alcayaga, one of the highest caliber coaches in the area, heads up our team of senior staff professionals. In addition to the high intensity drills, we conduct on the court, we incorporate conditioning and match play into the curriculum to make sure our players reach their maximum potential. The camp consists of players ranging from touring pros to complete beginners. Campers also have two hours of free swim in our Junior Olympic-sized pool. The camp provides drinks throughout the day, a snack of fresh fruit, a lunch catered by our restaurant and towels for pool time.

Day-to-day activities are handled by Assistant Tennis Director Thomas Gilliland. A national coach, graduate of Columbia University’s Maters of Sports Management Program and vice president of the USTA Metro Region, Thomas has run the camp for the past five years. Thirteen weeks of camp begin June 9, and transportation is available from Queens and Manhattan. For more information, call (718) 268-2300 or e-mail thomas@foresthillstennis.com.
