Junior Tennis Lessons at Gray Plantation Sports Club

The Gray Plantation Sports Club offers a variety of lessons and programs year-round for junior tennis players of all levels.

Our programs include personalized training, summer camps, and competitive and non-competitive play. Players interested in honing their skills or simply learning the basics can benefit from professional coaching and regular gameplay.

Kevin Gillete

Kevin Gillette, director of tennis, spent his career increasing tennis participation among young enthusiasts. In 2017 he was named the USTA Boys 18’s National Team Coach for the Southern Section and USTA National Boys and Girls Intersectional Coach. He also coached junior tennis player Stevie Johnson, who went on to play on the U.S. Davis Cup team.

Kevin and his team of professionals will be very direct in teaching juniors how to work as a team to accomplish more. While tennis is an individual sport, each player has a responsibility to each other when on a team. When one player is not doing their best, it affects the rest of the team.

Once Kevin feels that the group of juniors is ready to be leaders, they will be asked to mentor players in other groups through hitting balls with them and engaging in gameplay. In order for a player to reach their maximum potential, they need to become leaders and mentor juniors that are less experienced than them.
