Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my class is cancelled?
PTP makes every attempt to hold Princeton tennis camps, programs, and classes for kids, adult, and seniors as scheduled. In the event of inclement weather, you can call the PTP office at 609-520-0015 to check on the status of classes. Use ext. 2 (weather conditions/class cancellations hotline) for classes in and around Princeton and use ext. 3 for Veteran’s Park Hamilton.
If we must make a change to the schedule, a message will be left 30 minutes prior to the start of your tennis camp or program. If the message is not updated, we suggest you proceed to your scheduled court time to check court conditions.
How do I get my child into Peak Training?
There is no open registration for PTP Peak Training classes. Participation is by invite or tryout only. If your child is currently participating in our program, they will need a recommendation in order to try out.
As a rule, juniors who are accepted into the Peak Training classes demonstrate commitment to the game, are participating in USTA tournaments, play for their school teams, play year-round, complete regular drills and supplement with private lessons.
What level should I register for?
If you are currently enrolled in a PTP camp or program, please speak to your instructor for his or her recommended level. If you are a new PTP participant, we suggest you review the “skill levels” option on our menu.
Determining skill level in tennis has many components; i.e., stroke mechanics, strategy, footwork, mobility, basic fundamentals. Therefore, it is not a simple and straightforward progression. You may be in an advanced beginner class for several sessions before you are ready to move to the next level.
When is open registration?
All class registrations are based on a “first come, first served” basis. PTP now offers you the opportunity to register online through Club Automation. Registration start dates for Princeton tennis camps are as follows:
- March 1st – Spring outdoor season & early bird summer camp registration
- May 1st – Summer outdoor season & summer camp
- August 1st – Fall outdoor season & Winter indoor season
Can I make-up a missed class?
PTP policy states that there are no make-ups for personal absences. Make-ups will be offered only if a class is cancelled due to inclement weather.
Can I get a refund?
PTP policy states there are no refunds. Extreme circumstances may be considered by the director.
Why is the computer saying I am ineligible?
This could occur for a few different reasons:
- it could be an exclusive class, which means you would need to call the office to be made eligible;
- You may not be at the correct age group for the given class, which also means that you would need to call the office to be made eligible;
- There has been an error or misunderstanding, in which case you should call the office for help.
