CAC - Pine Lake’s tennis department is excited to announce the start of a new program: Point Play! Competition is a crucial aspect of the game and allows players to form critical skills that apply on and off the court.
We believe your child has demonstrated the technical ability to begin gaining experience in a more structured, competitive environment. Our program leads will guide your child through the rules of score keeping, basic singles and doubles strategy, navigating the highs and lows of competition, and celebrating the wins while managing the pressures one faces during match play. These experiences are critical to improving a player’s physical, strategic, emotional, and mental game, giving your child confidence in their abilities.
