About Us

OUR MISSION:

TO PROMOTE AND DEVELOP THE GROWTH OF TENNIS IN THE SUFFOLK AND SURROUNDING AREAS.


Furthermore, to provide quality tennis instruction through private lessons, group lessons and tennis programs in the Suffolk and surrounding areas to promote the growth of the tennis community. By accomplishing this purpose, Raising a Racket, LLC will give the youth and adults of our area a health sports activity that can be played for a life time.

Our program is striving to provide the local schools with players for their teams and give the youth an alternative individual sport to participate in.  The adults will benefit by the healthy activity of playing and the social benefits of being part of a group that is pursuing an active life style and supporting the life-long  sport of tennis.

"In the late ’50s and early ‘60s, the town of Suffolk was known for its strong tennis program. The local high school team won six straight State Championships. Suffolk no longer has a tennis program and it needs a new beginning to get participation in the sport. This can only be provided by a teacher(s) with proven talents and great knowledge of the sport. Raising a Racquet LLC has hired Jan Talian to accomplish this purpose."

 

CORE VALUES:

TO PROVIDE TENNIS INSTRUCTIONS AND PROGRAMS WITH INTEGRITY, TO BE INCLUSIVE AND NON-DISCRIMINATORY, TO HAVE EXCELLENCE IN OUR PROGRAM OFFERINGS, TO BE COMMITTED TO WORK WITH OTHER OGANIZATIONS PROMOTING TENNIS ACTIVITIES AND TO BE ACCOUNANTABLE FOR PROVIDING GREAT SERVICES.
