    Camp is held on the beautiful, state-of-the-art tennis facility at Hawken Upper School. All campers will receive a camp shirt. Tennis balls will be provided.

    NOTE: Campers should come with a pair of proper tennis shoes, their own racquet, and a water bottle.

Coach Smallwood has led the Hawken boys tennis team to two consecutive state runner-up finishes in 2016 and 2017 and 3rd place in 2018. He has trained 28 high school state qualifiers to the OHSAA Tournament and from 1999-2015 developed 42 collegiate players who have played at Division I, II, and III colleges.
