We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, December 20, 2019.

Level: Low Intermediate-Intermediate, Ball Type: Foam, Green Dot, High Compression, Court Size: 60' & 78?, Tournament Level: USTA Sanctioned Entry Level or Non-Sanction Competition

Silver 8-11 is the next level after Bronze 8-11 in our Junior Development Pathway and the first level to offer a recreational match play session as part of the curriculum (match play attendance is very important, as match play is 60% of player development). This class is a ton of fun, with a lot of athletic movement, and high energy instruction from our USPTA/USPTR Certified Tennis Professionals. This class runs in monthly sessions and generally meets 3 times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for Match Play. Silver 8-11 is specifically designed for younger players to focus on more advanced movement, agility, racquet preparations, rallies, placement, recreational competition and point play for singles and doubles. Players will continue to work on fundamentals, but should already know how to score, and be comfortable with the basic serve, groundstrokes, volleys and overhead fundamentals, as players will be introduced to stroke preparations on the run, the slice serve, return of serve and additional ball control using shape, spin and placement on their groundstrokes. As players develop, coaches will separate players abilities to create level compatibility throughout the session, so that our 2 tiers of development criteria are fully utilized to optimize player development.

Player graduation is approximately 12-24 months and Pro approval is REQUIRED to move to the next level of development. Player pathway development criteria is posted online at or posted in the PTC lobby. If you have any questions about the junior program, please call PTC @ 503-823-3189 or contact PTC Tennis Coordinator Bret Bowers by email:
