Ultimate Tennis Camp (UTC) was a concept started in 1997 at a small facility called The Heritage Swim and Tennis club in Concord, Massachusetts.
UTC operates out of our MLTC East location at 10 Granite Road in Acton. Campers are outdoors during the nice weather, however during inclement weather or when temperatures and humidity are dangerously high, players are moved inside to our indoor courts that are substantially cooler.
UTC begins and ends with one simple premise: to have fun. Although that seems obvious, it is not always the case when a beginning or intermediate level player is practicing hitting backhands in the hot, summer sun. Unfortunately, the reality is that for many players, they become bored.
At UTC, the kids are motivated in two unique ways. First, when players succeed at an activity by either hitting a cone or making a basket, they receive points. These points are then used to buy things such as cans of tennis balls, water bottles, candy, etc. Because of how the camp is structured and handicapped, ALL of the campers no matter what their level, earn enough points to make purchases.
The second motivator is the types of activities that the kids engage in. There are numerous games and exercises which are fun and challenging for the campers to participate in.
Age and Skill Level
The program is designed so that a younger and less experienced player has just as much of a chance to win points as an older participant. Even if your child has never held a racquet before, this is a fantastic medium in which to start them. Only players holding rankings in the USTA (United States Tennis Association) are prohibited from participating due to level restrictions. If you have a child who you feel is too advanced for this camp and would be interested in more match play, then you may be interested in our Junior Training Camp.
UTC is generally for boys and girls 6-13. As for level, kids are separated onto different courts relative to their age and skill level, enabling a younger, less skilled player to have as good a
