Lynne Ledanois

I have been an active tennis player with PCC for 14 years now and can tell you that membership has its privileges, from Coach Sid and Coach Robert, Cardio Tennis, the Fun Night Mixers, the competitive USTA teams, the camaraderie of the members and the opportunity for singles, doubles and mixed at every level. PCC has everything I am looking for in a club and I take advantage of all it offers whenever I can, and we are always delighted to have new tennis players join us:)
