Project Description

JULIAN KRINSKY SCHOOL OF TENNIS

Rethink Tennis Camp.

We did. And, the Julian Krinsky School of Tennis is the coolest thing you’re not doing…yet! This is tennis camp reimagined, individualized and focused on YOU! We’ve trained thousands of tennis players, and we know that each player has unique goals, interests and strengths. So, we did it. We rethought what it meant to come to a summer tennis camp and created programming designed just for you. You choose the intensity you want, and we’ll give you the best experience and the best results

If you are just doing drills, serving and playing matches like your iTunes on repeat – it’s time to step up and try a different approach. After 40 years, it’s clear that Julian Krinsky knows tennis. Now you can experience five tennis tracks with personalized electives. Bring out the best possible player in you with individualized training! See the difference JKST will make in your game.

Choose One of Five Tennis Tracks

Take your pick! Depending on what you want to get out of your week at JKST, you will be able to pick from a variety of tracks. These tracks let you work with other tennis players at your level and also choose from a variety of electives so you can focus on areas of your game that interest you most.

No matter what track you choose, everyone will do core tennis programming for half the day. These are your tennis fundamentals. Then, for the other part of the day, you will take your electives.

Tennis Events

We’ve been known to work hard and play hard. We hustle on the court and then take breaks to cool down and have some fun. We’ve created special tennis events you’ll love like Davis Cup, matches against local clubs, tennis carnivals and beat the pros.

Tennis is a sport to play for a lifetime. Be part of it! Have fun, learn new skills and be with kids looking for the same experience. Whether you are brand new to tennis or play inconsistently, come play games that are fun and build confidence. We’re making the game easier to learn so you have more fun and success on the court!

Don’t get caught up in the trophies and rankings. Play the game you love and compete with your fellow students in a team atmosphere. This is an ideal prep for school team players. You have withstood backbreaking practices and grueling matches, so, let us help you showcase your abilities when tryouts start. Beat out your archrival for that coveted singles or doubles spot that you have long desired. Amp up your game and have a break-through season!

This is the track that pulls all the components together to help you win in tournaments. Execute your best game every time, keep your cool in the toughest moments and capitalize on your opponents’ weaknesses! It’s time to be a titan, step up your training and analyze what triggers you.

You’ve won a lot, but now you are in the pressure cooker. This is the track that elevates the high school tennis player to a college player, the true competitors, the ones who play with courage and the fighters who know how to bounce back after a crushing loss. Strike a balance with high pace, high performance and high intensity master classes that will push you past your limits. You’ll be ready to dominate but with the heart and mind of a champion. It’s the ultimate refinement of your game. Players should be participating in USTA (or Ranking) Tournaments and preparing for college tennis.

Elective Examples:

  • Unleash the Beast
  • Equipment Revolution
  • College Tennis Preview
  • Pro Strokes
  • Play Connected

LEARN FROM THE PROS

Our teaching professionals are affiliated with USPTA, PTR, ITF and trained at the Julian Krinsky School of Tennis. There is a low student to staff ratio, which means you will get individualized attention and instruction. Our pros come from around the world and are some of the best. They have played in international tournaments, and they know what it takes to make it in tennis. They work with each student, no matter what your skill set or goals, to ensure the level of play is right for you.

It All Started With Tennis – Once a pro player at Wimbledon and the French Open, Julian Krinsky brings his passion for tennis to his summer camps and year-round training tennis academy. Plus, Julian is on campus often, so you can learn from him first-hand!

LIFE ON CAMPUS

Campus Experience. From meeting your new roommate, walking around the beautiful campus, eating in the dining halls and taking classes in the historic buildings, you’ll get a taste of what life as a college student is really like. You’ll love the modern facilities, air-conditioned dorms, snack shops, WiFi and state-of-the-art athletic spaces.

International Experience. About 40% of students come from around the world to join us at JKCP each summer.  Every year we hear how much students enjoy meeting people from all over the country and the world and how it opened their eyes to different parts of the globe.

Trips & Activities. One of the best parts of JKCP is the activities. Every evening there is a planned event. Sometimes we stay on campus, and other nights we’ll travel to a local venue for an off-campus activity. Trips are offered every Saturday to regional destinations of your choice. And Sundays are for exploring the Philadelphia region.
