PTR knows that participating in a sport like tennis at an early age not only
helps the body physically, but it also helps the brain to develop in areas such as problem-solving and critical thinking. Tennis
is an ideal way for students to begin to gain the mind-set and skills that will help them as they make their way through the
educational system then head out into life. The sport also provides a direct pathway to a university education for these youngsters.
