You, undoubtedly see Brecht at the tennis facility in the upcoming days and months. Please give him a warm welcome.
At the October 3, 2016 City Council meeting, City Council members approved a contract for our new teaching tennis professional, Dan Carozza.

Jacksonville Beach Tennis Center has men’s, morning ladies, working women’s, mixed doubles, junior, and senior teams at all levels. Membership is required for league play.
JBTC has a strong junior program for beginners, intermediate, and advanced players. Also offered are adult beginner and intermediate clinics, along with teen clinics and private lessons.
JBTC is a fun place to play tennis. When league play isn’t keeping the courts full, the center offers round robins, mixers, and annual tournaments. The annual Iron Man, Iron Woman, Junior Senior citizen challenge Holiday Round Robin, Mixed Doubles Madness, and Morning Ladies Mixer have all been great successes. These tournaments and activities are not only fun but they help raise money to allow JBTC to transport special needs kids to the center to have fun.
JBTC’s staff, with the help of volunteers, gives free clinics to special needs children and others. In particular, the program with Alden Road Exceptional Student’s Center has been a huge success. These kids, with the help of volunteers and staff from both centers, are transported and given free tennis clinics through the school year. We end the year with a Tennis Carnival which is always a lot of fun. The local high school (Fletcher) girl’s team practices at JBTC. JBTC strives to help the community through the sport of tennis.
Good sportsmanship and proper tennis attire are required at ALL TIMES.
