Camps and Conferences PAY BALANCE DUE

UW-Whitewater Adult Tennis Camp

Dear Warhawk Camper and Family,

To ensure the safety of campers and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater has made the difficult decision to cancel all  overnight summer camps. This is the first time since Warhawk Tennis Camps started in 1973 that there will not be overnight camps here.  Of course we were hoping to again be able to offer our summer camps, but realize that safety needs to come first during these difficult times.  I hope you are all doing well and staying safe.

We do understand that it is a crazy race in January to get registered into the exact camp you want to be in, so we would like to offer you the chance to hold your spot in next summer’s 2021 corresponding camp by keeping your current deposited amount on file.  You will also be locking into the 2020 summer rate in doing so.  If you choose to cancel later on, we can help you with that at a later date.

If we do not hear from you we will keep your money tied to your account and you will automatically be registered for that same session next summer.

  • Collegiate Prep: June 14-17, 2021
  • Adult Camp June 18-20, 2021
  • Junior Session 1 June 27-July 2, 2021
  • Junior Session 2 July 11-16, 2021
  • Junior Session 3 July 18-23, 2021
  • Junior Session 4 July 25-30, 2021
  • Junior Session 5 Aug 1-6, 2021

If you can’t do those dates in 2021, you can do one of two options by emailing the camps office at

  1. You can request a different session and we can hopefully move your current payment into that session when campers cancel from that session. Again you will avoid needing to register next January and you will lock into the 2020 summer rate.  I would expect we can get most of you into the desired session before 2021 summer registrations open in January.  If not, we will refund you, and put you on that waitlist. In that email include the camper name, list which session you were in originally, and which you would like to move to.
  2. You can simply cancel now at no cost by emailing your cancelation request to the email above. In that email indicate which session you were originally signed up for.

OTHER SUMMER OPTIONS THROUGH WARHAWK TENNIS: We are still looking to offer some tournament play or day clinics later in the summer if we can get approval to do so. We are actively working on those types of things and will keep you posted as soon as a decision if reached on those offerings.

Thank you for your patience during these times!

Frank Barnes, PTR Tennis Professional, UW-Whitewater Head Men's and Women's Tennis Coach
