Fun and games, that’s what kids love most. Here at Pierremont Oaks Tennis Club, our goal is to give your child a fantastic experience learning a sport they can play their entire lives, while in a fun, safe environment. We believe that your child should enjoy his/her time on court, while learning valuable life skills such as hard work, honor, integrity and fairness. We use tennis as a vehicle by which to develop the whole individual, emphasizing self-reliance, responsibility and a commitment to personal excellence. These philosophies are the foundation and guiding principles behind every decision we make at the Junior Development program at Pierremont Oaks Tennis Club. Whether your children are just starting out, looking to improve their game, or are high performance players, we have a program for them. Our Junior Development program offers a systematic and progressive approach to tennis excellence. Structured around effective growth and development principles, players move up at their own pace based on their ability, improvement and commitment. Every level of the program has a simple set of objectives, and our pros make your child achieving each goal their priority.
