The first play opportunity is during the actual clinics. We start with cooperative skills and after students can serve and rally, they will begin to play. Play always starts with TEAM. Young kids and beginners need to be in a fun, safe environment and this is what team competition creates. Click here for the clinic schedule.
Do you need a night out for the adults? Fun Friday is just what you need. Kids from 6-16 can come out and play tennis, eat pizza, and enjoy their friends. Play is supervised by Cheri Hain (Play Program Director) along with other PRC professionals. This program runs 6:00-8:30 p.m. and is held once each 6-week session during the school year.

Super Saturday Play
Super Saturday events are designed for kids in the Quick Start and Team Groups to try out their skills with other familiar faces from their class.
- 12-2:30 pm: Quick Start team competition for QS 1 , 2 and Team 1. Kids in QS 1 who cannot rally will compete in cooperative skills as a team.
- 2-5 pm: Regular court play for students in the Team 2 group. All Super Saturday events are held at PRC. Click here for Super Saturday dates.
Junior Team Tennis (JTT) Play
The next level of play is our local Junior Team Tennis league, where kids will compete on a PRC team against kids from other area facilities. In order to play, you must be able to rally, serve, and keep score. Format is singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.
This play opportunity is offered through local public and private Middle School and High Schools. Players participate in team competition in singles and doubles.
Sanctioned Tournament Play
The final stage of the competitive pathway is sanctioned tournaments. PRC offers three different sanctioned tournaments during the year. In the fall and spring, we have novice tournaments (GA. Satellite) that offer Quick Start divisions for U8 and U10, as well as 12-18 year old divisions that play on the regular court. In the summer, we have our annual Mark Brown Invitational, which is an "open" tournament for any level players. There are additional tournaments in the CSRA held throughout the year. In order to be ready for sanctioned tournament competition, PRC players need to have participated in Super Saturdays and Junior Team Tennis.
