Tennis provided a world of opportunities for Ms. Pantusart as an athlete, student, and businesswoman. She believes, through direct experience, that tennis and other youth sports can be extremely beneficial to a child’s most formative years. Not only do youth sports such as tennis instill the timeless values of hard work, teamwork, grace in victory and defeat, they also contribute to a sense of community and friendship which is vital for children. Furthermore, Ms. Pantusart has identified the benefits regarding the intellectual and academic emphasis on the science of playing tennis. Ms. Pantusart is excited to be operating in the DC area and is looking forward to providing children with new experiences, skills, and opportunities.
Tennis is one of the best sports for youth development – fostering advanced physical, cognitive, and social aptitudes. Getting children involved in tennis at an early age can tremendous benefits for their future.
