As Jonathan Fralick, General Manager of PCTC, said,
“We want to ensure the most positive experience you can have playing tennis, including everything from customer service to court time,” Fralick said. “If this facility were located anywhere else, we would have competition.” But, the GM know that, with the magnitude of this facility, PCTC could compete with the anyone, anywhere.
Fralick also described the venue as an extremely professional environment. The facility prides itself on being a complete, comprehensive full-service facility; the expectations are for a high level of commitment, and no favors are made over members or non members. Everyone who plays or visits PCTC should have a positive and memorable experience from beginning to end.

Peachtree City alone could entice you to make the trip to the tennis center, with 99 miles of golf cart paths lining the city; yes, you heard correctly! Local restaurants and businesses encourage golf cart parking and commuting to and from their locations, and even to your local tennis facility. If driving a golf court along paved pathways in a city doesn’t seal the deal, try out Lake Peachtree, the Fred amphitheater, local PTC dog park, and other outdoors arenas. The city truly incorporates a one-of-a-kind vibe that must be experienced to truly appreciate its value.
