Why Grand Slam Tennis Camps by Active Away?
Grand Slam Tennis Camps are no ordinary tennis camps, we use current professional tennis players to host and lead our tennis programme.
Head Coach at the tennis camps in 2018 is Marcus Willis a former top 300 ATP player, who recently played Roger Federer on Centre Court at Wimbledon in 2016, and Jocelyn Rae who won Gold at the 2010 Commonwealth games, was a 2017 Wimbledon Quarter Finalist and represented Great Britain in the Fed Cup.[button color=”#COLOR_CODE” background=”#COLOR_CODE” size=”large” src=”https://activeaway.com//nas/content/live/activeaway/downloads/Grand-Slam-A4-brochure-.pdf”]Download our 2018 Camp Brochure[/button] [layerslider id=”112″]
Jocelyn and Marcus will be on hand throughout the week to ensure your child has a tennis camp experience like no other – learning what it takes to play at the highest level.
Alongside the professional players, we have a coaching team with a wealth of experience; Matt, who managed the U12 Great Britain teams and Steve, who has produced numerous international level players. They are also both the directors of Active Away and were successful on UK TV program; Dragons Den.

Tennis Camp Overview
Your son/daughter with stay at Henry V111’s former Tudor Palace – New Hall School in Chelmsford, only 30 minutes from London, and have their very own bedroom. We believe it’s important for children to have their own personal space, and this adds to the tennis camp experience.
Chelmsford is officially the UK’s hottest spot! Summers in Chelmsford have hit the heights of 35.2 degrees Celsius, so you can be sure of a fun filled summer tennis camp.
Getting to the tennis camp couldn’t be easier – Stansted Airport is just 45 minutes from New Hall, whilst Gatwick and Heathrow airports are only one hour 30 minutes away, all of which offer international transfers. There is also London Southend Airport within 30 minutes of New Hall School, which offers transfers to locations such as Geneva, Spain and Italy. By rail, New Hall School is only 30 minutes from London, from Chelmsford’s train station.
