Chasing Summer – USA Tennis Camp Experience

Chasing Summer
with Leon Van Voorthuizen

Winter is coming and that means it’s time for me to fly North in search of warmer temperatures and longer days on the courts. Once again, I will be returning to take up my position as Tennis Director at Windridge Tennis and Sports Camps in Roxbury, Vermont, USA.

Since joining Vida in September 2018, I have met some amazing individuals and have been inspired by the culture of Vida, and its goal of creating life opportunities through tennis.

Tennis has allowed me to travel the world and over the last 4 years it has allowed me to impact over 60 coaches and 600 players at Windridge.

This year Cian Brien, the Head Coach from Altona Tennis Club will be joining me on the courts as we bring Vida and Windridge together. Over the course of the Summer (Aussie winter) we will be posting about our adventures on our social media platforms and we invite you to follow the journey.

The upcoming Summer will be the 52nd at Windridge. Apart from tennis, Windridge offers expert instruction in horse riding and soccer as well as an extensive electives program filled with activities such as a high ropes challenge course, archery, golf and mountain biking.

My goal for 2020 and beyond is to provide an opportunity for Vida players to travel to the US with me to immerse themselves in a 3 week summer camp session.

Here is a short video about life at Windridge.
