My name is Larry Brown and I am excited to be the Tennis Pro for the Pentwater Tennis Club. It is my goal to provide players with the opportunity to develop their skills and abilities in Tennis to their fullest potential. I have run the Junior Tennis Clinic at PTC for several years and provide private tennis lessons to our members as well as some adult clinics and fast feeds.
I have worked for the State of Michigan, Jackson Public Schools, Spring Arbor University, Jackson Parma Western Schools, Jackson Lumen Christi Schools, Shelby Schools and more recently I have provided private lessons, weekly drill practice, and run the kids tennis camp at Lincoln Hills. I have been the Athletic Director for Pentwater Schools and the JV boys Tennis Coach at Ludington Schools.
I have enjoyed over 40 years of coaching students. I had the opportunity to take a number of boys and girls teams to be conference and regional champs. I have also had the opportunity to go to state tournaments with both boys and girls teams in Tennis. Over the years I have surrounded myself with quality coaches and individuals. My family (Matt and Nikki), my five Grandchildren (Lily, Evie, Elias. Genie, and Auggie) and my wife (Tammie) have also contributed to this process.
My main Coaching Philosophy involves three main components in the approach to the athlete. They are 1) Tell them, Show them, Involve them 2) Can you trust me, Can I trust you, are you committed and 3) Champions on the court, Champions for Life, Learn life Lessons
