Georgetown Tennis Center Head Pro, Pete Polkinghorn, serving tennis balls on the court

Pete Polkinghorn joined the tennis staff in May of 2009 as the Center’s Head Tennis Professional.

A U.S.P.T.A. certified Tennis Professional since 1980, Pete played for Westlake High School and later played under the guidance of Fred Kniffen at TJC in Tyler.

Pete has worked with a number of state and nationally ranked players. His teaching philosophy centers on keeping things simple and fun for the students. “Simplifying the stroke mechanics for beginning- and intermediate-level players provides immediate results. This also builds a higher level of self-confidence for all players, from novices just entering the sport to those who have reached a plateau and need help moving to the next level.”
