Pete Brown Junior Tennis Program (PBJTP)

The Pete Brown Junior Tennis Program (PBJTP) is a 5013c organization in honor of Coach Pete Brown who for forty-plus years shared, taught, and spread his love for the game of tennis to inner-city youth of South Central Los Angeles.

Pete Brown passed in 2009, and the tennis program formally became a nonprofit organization to continue its mission of providing a safe and positive place for young people to learn and excel at tennis. The program is based at Jackie Tatum/Harvard Tennis Park courts. We offer after-school and weekend tennis, academic and mentoring programs at no charge to children willing to work hard in school and on the tennis court. We help our children reach their full potential and use their PBJTP experience to help them go to college and earn a degree essential for future success. Your contribution will change a child's life and help set the foundation for a healthy and active lifestyle that will last a lifetime.

We are dedicated to training diverse community youth in grades pre-K through 12th grade in the sport of tennis. Our emphasis is on developing physical fitness, sportsmanship, teamwork, and education. PBJTP strives to provide the opportunity for children to grow into competitive tennis athletes, build self-esteem, personal confidence, lasting friendships, and great memories, all while having fun.

We offer free weekly supervised on-court tennis coaching and training to children at all levels from ages 5 to 18. The program provides equipment which includes tennis rackets and balls. In addition, all children must wear tennis shoes on the courts.

Our seasoned players need excellent practice and coaching to advance to the next level of play. Weekly drills, instruction, and match play propels our players and readies them for USTA and local tennis tournaments. We strive to provide these players with the skills they need to be winners.
