Our team at Grand Slam Tennis Camps are renowned for their careful selection of potential venues for our tennis camps.
For 2018 we’ve selected the prestigious New Hall School in Chelmsford.
From the moment Grand Slam Camp players first travel up the mile-long, tree-lined avenue that leads to the grand façade of the former Tudor palace, they will be made to feel welcome and excited.
Chelmsford is officially the UK’s hottest spot, with its own microclimate! Summers in Chelmsford have hit the heights of 35.2 degrees celsius. The city is ideally placed; the coast is a short drive away, as are historic Colchester and Cambridge.
The outstanding facilities on offer within the stunning 85-acre campus will cater for a camper’s every need.
New Hall is set in an idyllic and convenient location, just 30 minutes by train from London and within easy reach of all major London airports.
At New Hall, there is an offer a wide choice between hot and cold food, with plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and salads. Proposed menus are reviewed by Nutritionist, Dr Juliet Gray RD RPH, along with the School’s medical team in the Health Centre. Weekly menus are put onto our website by our Caterers. We offer our campers a widely varied, healthy and tasty diet. We also attempt to cater for all tastes and preferences, including vegetarian.
When you’ve been running around on the tennis court you need to re-fuel regularly so there are also snack breaks to keep those energy levels up. Water is available throughout the day and coaches will always be encouraging players to maintain hydration.
We cater for students who have alternative diets or food allergies. Just advise us when booking.
The modern and well equipped boarding houses have been carefully designed to be a ‘home from home’. All based on the stunning campus, each player will have their very own Single Room.
Facilities available to boarders include: common areas in each house with TV, DVD, computers (for work and play) and piano; sports hall, swimming pool, athletics track, tennis and netball courts, fitness suite and floodlit AstroTurf pitch; ICT suite; Eaton Theatre; The Library; and not forgetting the beautiful gardens and grounds.

As you can see this is the perfect Venue for our Grand Slam Camps.
We look forward to welcoming you on our 2018 Tennis Camp!
