Tennis & Multisport Camp FAQ


What do I need to pack for my child?
  • A packed lunch (plus snacks), please inform us of any allergies.
  • A drinks bottle (water refills are available on site)
  • Wear appropriate clothing & footwear for sport
  • It is a good idea to pack spare clothing & footwear
  • A tennis racket (if you have one – otherwise you can use ours)
  • Sun screen (child must apply themselves).
Will the children go outside?

If the weather allows we take full advantage of our location and will utilise the outdoor tennis courts, grass areas for multi sports and the play park at lunchtimes. All camp players are registered in and out of the building by our coaches and park areas are checked in advance by staff.

How do I sign in/out?
  • Please come into Aberdeen Tennis Centre reception area where a member of our Camp staff will greet you.
  • Make sure you complete the ‘Sign In’ and ‘Sign Out’ register each day. Whilst you do this, your child can drop their bag off and join in the games straight away. Another coach will be with the children.
  • If you will be dropping off or collecting your child out with these time slots, please report to reception and inform a member of staff. They will contact the camp coaches and organise.
What happens if my child is ill?
  • Before camp – If your child is sick from a virus within 24hrs of the camp, we kindly ask that they do not attend camp that day. This is to minimise the risk of spreading the infection.
  • During camp – If your child becomes ill during the camp, we will contact you using the details on the camp registration form. Staff will discuss the best solution with you and action.
What happens if there’s any behavioural issues?
  • On day 1 of each camp, all participants and coaches contribute in a group exercise to produce a Camp Code. This works very well and sets out a safe, fair, fun environment for all.
  • If any unacceptable behavioural is picked up, then we operate a 3-strike system:
  • Verbal warning to the player
  • Verbal warning + player time out (parent/carer informed at the end of the day)
  • Phone call to parent/carer and discuss appropriate action (this is extremely rare!)
What does a typical camp day look like?
  • Camps are generally split into two groups (by age)
  • A camp day includes group games, tennis coaching & competition, multi sports and a visit to the park (lunch time) as well as break time activities.
  • Some of our multi sports: Football, Athletics, Hockey, Basketball, Ball Games, and much more!
Can I pay for holiday camps with childcare vouchers?

As Sport Aberdeen’s holiday camps are an activity based service (and not daycare of children) it is not registrable by the Care Inspectorate under the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010. This means that we cannot accept childcare vouchers for this service.
