LC TENNIS Academy held a summer camp for children with hearing difficulties and children of deaf parents last week. All levels of playing skills were welcomed to what was a great opportunity to learn key skills, improve existing skills and meet new friends, with young and old alike having lots of fun putting their tennis skills to the test.
