The Centercourt Performance Tennis Center (CPTC) is located in Morristown, N.J., a one-of-a-kind facility fully-dedicated to the development and performance of tennis players. The Performance Center went through a complete renovation in 2012 and has seven hard courts (five are domed in the winter and two are permanent), one red clay court, state of the art strength and conditioning room, study area, new lobby, and new locker rooms.

Our philosophy is if you want to improve, you need to train. While you don’t have to be exceptionally talented, you do need to be seriously committed to your training. Our mission is to help every student-athlete we train realize his or her full potential; athletically, academically and within life itself. We believe that the trials and tribulations that our student-athletes endure in the tennis pathway will develop our young athletes into leaders on and off the court. Our players respect the game, their peers, parents, environment, and coaches. Our players are coached to not only become great players, but hard-working, self-sufficient individuals.

The CPTC curriculum features on-court and off-court lesson programs which include comprehensive tennis instruction complimented with both physical and mental conditioning conducted by performance specialists; all of whom are committed to developing players into champions. Total athletic training programs are designed to increase player development and facilitate higher overall performance by incorporating mental toughness, nutrition counseling, speed/movement, communication, and vision/reaction skills in all of our players.

Our culture is simple, We live the sport! Seven days a week, 365 days a year. Continually striving for improvement, we do not celebrate mediocrity. We strive to get the most out of all our players. If you are serious about your tennis and want to be the best athlete you can possibly be, you owe it to yourself to experience the Centercourt Performance Tennis Center firsthand!

Mayotte-Hurst Tennis Academy
196-00 Union Turnpike ♦ Fresh Meadows, N.Y.
(718) 740-6800 ♦ www.cunninghamsportscenter.com

Mayotte-Hurst Tennis Academy runs sophisticated, cutting-edge programs and private lessons at its site at Cunningham Tennis in Cunningham Park, Queens. Led by former top 10 player Tim Mayotte and top coach Lee Hurst (who has developed a number of tour-level players), our coaches bring years of experience in player development and getting them on track to be top players. All participants are expected to embrace and contribute to a "culture of excellence" built on our knowledge that great joy comes from the mastery of the physical and mental aspects of playing.

There are four levels of programming:
►Performance-Full Time: For pros, aspiring pros, full-time home-schooled students. This is for the most committed players. Participants train twice a day and receive mental, technical, tactical and fitness training of the highest level. Scheduling, goal-setting, video documentation and periodization training are also part of the regime.
►High Performance: For committed serious players ages 11-17, these competitors receive world-class training in one two-hour session per day. Embedded in the technical, tactical and fitness training, the students work on learning how to train with intensity and focus while finding their way to "practice with purpose." Private lessons are strongly suggested for participants (Monday-Friday from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.).
►Competition: Focused players from 12-years of age through high school can participate in the Competition Program, which currently runs Monday-Friday from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. The focus here is less on technique and more understanding tactics by learning to "practice with purpose." The coach-player ratio is 4:1. The work is intense as we push players to maximize their learning every time they step on the court.
►Development: For younger players there is Development. This program is focused on skill-building for ambitious youngsters. Realizing that high-level tennis requires the mastery of complicated skills, such as good technique, footwork patterns and basic tactics, we guide our students in a fun, age-appropriate way to learn the foundations of becoming a top level player (Monday-Friday from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.).

Weekend hours are being planned for all groups. For more information, call (718) 740-6800 or visit www.cunninghamsportscenter.com.

USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center
12402 Roosevelt Avenue ♦ Flushing, N.Y.
(718) 760-6200 ♦ USTA.com

The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center is the largest public tennis facility in the world. Operated by the USTA for the City of New York, the facility opened in 1978 when the USTA moved the U.S. Open from the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, NY. It is, most certainly, a “Tennis Welcome Center.”

In 1997, the USTA opened Arthur Ashe Stadium as its main stadium and expanded the tennis facilities at the USTA National Tennis Center. The construction increased the number of courts on the grounds from 25 to 45 and saw the acreage more than double to 46.5 acres. In 2006, the USTA renamed the entire facility the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in honor of one of tennis’ finest ambassadors and a product of public courts in her native Long Beach, Calif.

Expansion of the USTA National Tennis Center has increased the number of outdoor courts available for public play to 30. This does not include Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium or the Grandstand. In addition, there are 12 indoor courts for public use in the Indoor Training Center.

In actuality, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center is open to the public seven days a week, 11 months a year, closing only on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center has a staff of more than 20 USPTA and/or PTR-certified professionals conducting programs, clinics, private lessons, leagues and tournaments year-round. The NTC also supports all USTA Community Tennis and Player Development initiatives.

Other tournaments held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center include the Men's and Women’s College Tennis Invitational (an ITA event) and other ITA college events and conference championships; the Jana Hunsaker Memorial Eastern Wheelchair Championships (an ITF event); the USTA Men's and Women's National Open Indoor Championships and a host of USTA Eastern sectional tournaments for juniors, adults and seniors as well as New York Junior Tennis League (NYJTL) and New York City Parks Foundation programs for junior and senior players.

The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center professional staff also conducts community tennis programs, including Ten and Under Tennis for children 10 & under to learn tennis in a fun and dynamic way; USTA Junior Team Tennis for youth match play; USTA League Tennis for competitive, level-of-play competition, and an official Cardio Tennis site for on-court heart pumping fitness.

Initiatives for USTA Player Development include an Invitational USTA Competition Training Center for ranked players, Player Development programs for top-ranking juniors residing in the Northeast, and a year-round USTA Tournament Training Program for ranked juniors.

In addition, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center hosts events for coaches training and education, including United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) functions, four Certification Training Courses and Developmental Coaches Workshops each year, annual meetings and conventions and at least four Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) Teaching Essentials Workshops and Professional Development Workshops.
The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis also provides for diverse community outreach programs including; the New York Junior Tennis League (NYJTL), the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, the Queens District Attorney’s Star Track/Say Yes to Tennis, No to Violence program for Queens at-risk youth, and free tennis clinics conducted for NYC Department of Education teachers/coaches. The NTC hosts various tennis opportunities for special populations, including wheelchair tennis instruction for the physically-challenged from the months of October through July, HERO (Help Expand Recreational Opportunities) for developmentally challenged adults and tennis for autistic children through NYFAC (New York Families for Autistic Children). There is an extensive summer camp program which provides basic tennis instruction, including the 10-and-Under QuickStart format for younger children, and basic fitness programs; encourages good sportsmanship; and leads to general character building for the children in the New York City area. These services are provided at nominal cost, making it affordable for youngsters who would not otherwise get the chance to attend camp or receive tennis instruction. Lastly, our Project ACES (Alternative Classroom Environment for Students) which was implemented at the NTC in 2009, is geared toward six- to 10-year-old children from schools from the NYC Metropolitan Area. This program provides students the opportunity to visit the NTC and learn about the history and the game of tennis. The kids are given a walking tour of the entire site (excluding Stadium 2/3), including Center Court in Ashe, a video presentation in Interview Room 1 on the history and the game of tennis and the great players of the sport, a tour of the locker rooms, and roughly an hour of tennis instruction from the NTC’s pro staff, ending with lunch at the Indoor Training Center.
