Jonathan Markson is a former captain and coach of the Oxford University tennis team and played tennis for Scotland – he founded his Oxford tennis camp in 1981. Today, his company runs tennis courses in Yorkshire (for 8-15-year-olds), Oxford (10-17-year-olds), Brighton (15-21-year-olds) and Cambridge (adults), and anyone, with any level of proficiency in the game (or none), can do them. Courses are run by a team of qualified instructors, and a typical day involves five hours of tennis followed by an evening activity, which might be football, punting or Zumba. Accommodation is mainly in private schools or universities.
