Total Tennis in New York
About the experience
Total Tennis is located just 100 miles north of New York City, at the base of the Catskill Mountains in Saugerties, New York.
Total Tennis is all about perfecting your game. Players have ten hours of tennis with upbeat pros who coach group sessions as well as one 30-minute private lesson. Off the court, that charming away-at-camp vibe comes through in the dining hall and the game room.
Total Tennis has country-style lodging options. Each room in seven buildings has direct access to the outdoors. Depending upon where you are you could have an unobstructed vista of The Catskills or brilliant terrace views or an outdoor deck, even a charming front porch with built-in skylight and garden.
Pick between two-night/three-day packages, from either Friday to Sunday or Sunday to Tuesday. Groups are divided by level of play, and with the 4:1 student/pro ratio and five indoor hard courts, there’s plenty of time and space to perfect that power serve or learn to lob properly. Campers get five hours on the court each day, and one 30-minute private lesson with the camp’s motivating and knowledgeable trainers.
There is a lot of action off the courts as well. Relieve your aches and pains with a massage at the Kaatsbaan Day Spa or a dip in the hot tub. Mingle with other campers in the game room. After nightfall the entire camp gathers at the bar in the main lodge. Swap stories over the complimentary wine and cheese – Total Tennis holds one reception of each trip.
Do the trip to Woodstock, located 10 miles from Total Tennis. This legendary town is still chock full of gift shops selling crafts and memorabilia reminiscent of the iconic time.
