Our summer tennis camps are offered free-of-charge to Toronto children and youth, living in high priority needs neighbourhoods, ages 5-15, who would otherwise not have access to such activities. We hire 34 qualified instructors to teach tennis at each of our 16 summer camps, which are located across Toronto, including downtown, Scarborough, Etobicoke and Jane & Finch. Our partnership with the Toronto Sports Leadership program offers youth the opportunity to volunteer at our camps, preparing them for Tennis Canada certification and then future paid employment as tennis instructors. Philpott children learn more than tennis – they learn important lessons about discipline, cooperation, physical fitness and self-confidence.
