Junior Tennis Champions Center (JTCC) is pleased to announce a long-term partnership with the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington. As a part of the agreement, JTCC will take over all tennis instruction at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase and Silver Spring YMCA locations. Junior and adult tennis programs will also be offered.
“JTCC and the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington share the similar goal of promoting tennis to people of all ages and skill levels,” said JTCC Chief Executive Officer, Ray Benton. “This is a great partnership that will give us the opportunity to grow the game of tennis in the metropolitan Washington area by providing professional-level instruction that is more accessible to both junior and adult players across the region.”
JTCC will offer its “Rally in 10” program, which helps adults new to the game learn the skills they need to take the court in three weeks. Both junior and adult lessons and programs at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase YMCA will be offered on its five outdoor courts and at the Silver Spring location on its four outdoor courts. YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase and YMCA Silver Spring members also can take advantage of JTCC’s indoor winter programs.
“The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington is pleased to partner with JTCC to offer access to the best tennis instruction in the region,” said Pamela Curran, Chief Operating Officer, YMCA of Metropolitan Washington. “In offering the JTCC’s world-renowned training program at YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase and YMCA Silver Spring, we will help introduce the lifetime sport of tennis to more people, at a higher level, and have the opportunity to connect them to the YMCA mission in Montgomery County.”
JTCC is a world-class training program for junior players from all backgrounds to reach their full potential both on the court and in the classroom. It was selected by the USTA as the first Regional Training Center for its high performance program and was awarded the 2013 USTA Developmental Program of the Year. JTCC is home of the College Park Tennis Club (CPTC), the premier tennis club in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area offering a 32-court tennis facility featuring indoor, outdoor, hard, red and green clay courts. The CPTC was one of the recipients of the 2013 USTA Outstanding Facility of the Year.
