Non-Stop Action at Tennis Camp   Site Map   Click to enlarge pictures

[Click to enlarge view] Can you imagine 250 local children filling the courts of the Malliouhana and Carimar resorts? Well, that is what happened this summer at Tennis Camp 98. The camp is the creation of Mitch Lake who convinced four teammates from Gardner-Webb University to come to Anguilla and coach for a week: Murray Wellington of Perth Australia, Jason Allen, Brad Burgess and Timothy Parker. Then he convinced the hotels to donate use of their world class tennis courts for the week. The turnout and enthusiasm awed the instructors from the USA.

The picture here shows children wearing the Anguilla Tennis t-shirts and caps that were donated by Carson Products and Caribbean Silk Screen.

This is the 3rd year of Summer Tennis Camp in Anguilla and this year it is bigger than ever. The public courts at Ronald Webster Park now have lights so that they can be used at night (thanks to the tennis lovers of Anguilla and all the donors who made this possible). Marc Grenouilleau, a French tennis pro from St. Martin, visited the camp and is now working on a tournament for the young players of Anguilla, St. Martin and St. Maarten.

The tennis camp has its own web page at and Mitch is busy planning more tennis activities for Anguilla in the future.
