Holiday Clubs in Cheltenham

Creative Explorers Summer Craft Club

Join the Wilson Cheltenham in our newly refurbished Foyle Learning Centre for an Artist led Summer holiday club for 4-10 year old’s who love to make, share and play. We will collaborate on engaging individual and group projects throughout the day to encourage creativity, language and expression within the arts.

This informal workshop will be fun and light, providing your child with the chance to express themselves artistically while making new friends and learning new skills. We will take a tour of the galleries, explore the works on display and discuss our favourite pieces, followed by mask-making, painting, tie dyeing, clay play, printing and more!

East Glos

We are running children’s tennis classes catering for a wide range of ages and abilities. Classes will include lots of teaching and games to help players progress their tennis and have a great experience. Our camps are run by our highly experienced and fully LTA qualified coaching team providing the children with a fun, friendly and active learning environment.

Our 4-8yrs Half Term Tennis Camps run from 9-11am Monday to Friday. Coaches will ensure that children are taught a wide range of skills helping them to serve, rally and score in smaller groups based on age and ability. This is a great first step into tennis, using modified equipment guiding players through fun, progressive content to achieve the most out of their time on the court. We ask all participants to bring a drink and a snack and to wear clothing that you are comfortable running around in!

Our 9-16yrs Junior Tennis Camps run from 11-4pm Monday to Friday. Players will be divided up into smaller groups based on age and ability and will be taught a wide range of tennis skills in the form of drills and games which will help them maximise their enjoyment of playing the sport. The morning will focus on more teaching points and the afternoon will include lots of game-based scenarios including singles and doubles to use what they have learnt. Using different daily themes, our coaches will ensure there is something for everyone and help players learn skills and knowledge that will stay with them for life! We ask all players to bring a packed lunch (alternatively food can be ordered from the club’s café) and plenty of drink for when we break for lunch at around 1pm for 45 minutes.
