Junior Tennis Academy

PV Tennis Academy is a year-round tennis program for kids ages 4 and up. Our coaching philosophy is based on teaching and developing the fundamental skills that enable the player to have the most complete game possible. We believe that successful players never stop learning skills and developing their game. We offer group workouts, private lessons, and match play for members and non-members. 

PVTC follows the USTA curriculum and progression pathway, focusing on lighter balls, size-appropriate rackets, and smaller courts. By doing so, kids will develop skills faster, build more confidence, and have more fun. Each player is encouraged to start in their age-appropriate group and we will graduate the student as needed.
