Play on the grass courts at Cambridge University
Originally published on 27/11/15
OK, so playing on Centre Court at Wimbledon is probably the most prestigious grass court in the world, but even members of the All England Club don’t get to play there.
As history and prestige goes, the grass courts at Cambridge University are hard to beat. Founded in 1881, Cambridge University Lawn Tennis Club is one of the oldest lawn tennis clubs in the country.
Cambridge is one of our favourite cities in the UK and we were delighted to discover that Jonathan Markson Tennis has launched a tennis camp for adults in the very heart of the city this August. The company has run popular camps from Oxford University for many years, but the adult tennis camps at rival university Cambridge is new for 2016.
Set in the heart of the city at Fenner’s Tennis Ground, the camp is targeted at adult players looking to finesse their game in a uniquely English environment.
With the option to attend the camp during the day as a non-resident or stay in one of the colleges as a resident, this is a truly exclusive opportunity.
Starting from £425, the camp offers up to five hours of tennis each day, including video analysis as well as doubles and singles tournaments during the week.
Of course, the English weather is unpredictable, even in August, and an indoor fitness hall can be used if rain stops play.
And with a Cambridge College tour included in the price, there will be plenty of time for you to get your cultural fix and explore the city’s historic museums, churches and colleges as well as the local pubs and restaurants.
