Laois village set to host first ever tennis summer camp on new court

Vicarstown tennis court

The SVT Activity and Wellness Hub is set to add another string to it’s bow this summer.

The Stradbally, Vicarstown and Timahoe based group is already very active every week with walking, running, cycling and paddling.

This summer the Laois County Council sponsored “Parks Tennis Summer Camp” will spend a week in Vicarstown.

This is the first time that Parks Tennis has come to the Vicarstown area.

The camp will be held on the marvelous new tennis court at the Community Hall.

With the excitement of Wimbledon still fresh in everyone’s mind, it promises to be a great week of fun.

The camp runs from Monday July 25 to Friday July 29, and coaching is provided by a qualified tennis coach, assisted by the Youth Sport Leaders who have also been trained.

The morning session is for 6-10year olds, and the afternoon session is for 11-16year olds

The cost is €30 per child and siblings are €25. Tickets can be booked by clicking here.
