Children's Holiday Camps
A great way for children to have a lot of FUN and improve their tennis skills.

The Northumberland Club offers different camps during the school holidays which means we can cater for any child between the ages of 4 and 17 at different holidays throughout the year.

Our next camps are running from 2nd January 2023
Tennis camp is perfect for 4 - 9 year olds to develop their skillset in tennis and other sports in a fun, sociable environment at The Northumberland Club, the largest rackets facility in the North East of England. A fun camp with 5 sessions per day. 3 sessions of Mini Tennis red and 2 sessions of multi sports, eg, Rounders, Football, Mini Olympics etc
This is a great opportunity for children to partake in an enjoyable holiday activity in a quality coaching environment in which they will learn and improve their sporting and tennis skills all whilst building friendships! 

Each day runs from 10am - 4pm. Additional supervision outside of these hours can be provided on a day to day basis between 8am and 6pm. 
*Additional supervison available outside of camp hours


For 4 to 9 year olds, we hold a Tennis Camp every half term during Autumn and Winter and during Easter, May and Summer holidays we cater for aged 3-18 year olds which consists of four hours of coaching each day tailored to the age, standard and individual needs of the children involved. During the course of the week, children will work at improving their technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects of tennis in a fun and friendly group activity. Camps are directed under the supervision of our Head Professional John Henderson (pictured) who is supported by our fully qualified coaching team.  The tennis camp runs between 10am and 4pm each day and additional supervision* is available before and after the camp if required.                                                                                                               

 General Safe Guarding and Refunds 
Please note that all children should be dropped and collected from the courts that the session will take place on. We cannot release children unless the responsible adult collects them from the court and designated coach leading the session. You will be notified in advance of which courts these will be, and they shouldn’t change throughout the term of coaching. If a change is necessary, we will give you prior warning. Children attending holiday camps must be signed in and out by an adult.
The bar and café will be open from 0900 - 21.30 daily serving brunch, lunch, coffee, drinks, snacks, and hot meals. Parents and children are welcome to use the lounge and bar at all times.
Please ensure your child brings a water bottle with them. If the weather is hot, please send your child with sun cream already applied and a hat.
Walkie-talkies are used by staff and coaches to communicate between the reception/office; senior leaders; courts, sports halls and lunch spaces to ensure we operate as safely as possible and provide support to children when needed. All coaches are trained First Aiders and we have several first aid kits on site. Other first aiders are on call around the site at all times if an accident requires more attention in each building/area.
All adults are expected to apply the safeguarding policy and code of conduct consistently and children should respect all adults equally.
Fee structure and Booking arrangements
Clubspark coaching courses are payable termly in advance via the club spark booking system. Where there are available places and a course is not full after it commences, parents may book part way through the term for the remainder of the whole term and this can be booked on line or at the reception desk. The club offers discounted prices for courses where the child or parent is a member of the club. Memberships are validated by our reception staff and are paid monthly through the go-cardless system.
Refunds will not be given for sickness or any other absences. The Head coach will try to offer an alternative or additional session wherever possible within the weekly timetable/the following week if there is a genuine reason why your child is unable to attend so that they do not miss out. For example, isolation due to covid or a sprained ankle. We do understand there are sometimes extenuating circumstances and, in the case, where your child for example has had to undergo surgery or breaks a limb and is unable to attend for a longer period during the term the club will refund a maximum of half of the term course fees. Please see the General Manager in this case.
We would prefer parents to pay on line via our Clubspark system. If you have not registered to do this, it is very easy. Simply access the website The Northumberland Club / Coaching ( Please make sure that you record your contact details and special requirements or medical information your child may have when you are booking.
Changing and medical information
It should be recognised that the Northumberland Club is a multi-user facility and there is not a separate changing/toilet facility for juniors. This policy encourages children to come to coaching and holiday camp sessions already changed and to use any showering facilities in their own homes. 
We understand that sometimes changing rooms are needed to attend after school sessions and we would ask that children aged 11 and under are accompanied/supervised by their parent or responsible adult in the changing room. Children aged 12 and above may use the changing room unaccompanied but please be mindful the changing rooms are accessible by other adults.
If your child has any medical conditions that we need to be aware of or special requirements please ensure this is recorded on your booking information or email
