PTR Professional Tennis Registry  

Internet scams are prevalent regarding tennis lessons or familiar names having been robbed abroad. Be suspicious of any unsolicited request from someone you do not know, especially emails that involve any payment or financial arrangement. There are many scams right now regarding tennis lessons. Many offer to send you a check (which is bogus). The check ends up being for more than the amount, and they ask you to send them a check for the difference. Please do not respond to these requests! The most recent scam emails are being sent by with the subject line Private Tennis Lesson.
