Few sports can compete with tennis in delivering overall physical, mental and emotional benefits. Teaching kids how to play tennis can also teach them to: develop a proper work ethic; be able to manage mistakes and failure; accept responsibility; manage adversity; learn teamwork; and develop social skills. All these benefits make tennis the ideal sport for kids to learn early in life. Typically, lessons from a tennis instructor cost $40 per hour. The cost of learning on the PSC Tennis Team is less than you will see anywhere else. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn this lifelong sport!
