Welcome to PTA, from Kelly Baritot Sorbo

PTA was founded to create a professional platform and training academy to achieve one goal: the elevation and advancement of local and national junior tennis players. Our system provides:

  • Proven instruction rooted in the most current instructional techniques, including the modern forehand, used by the majority of tennis professionals
  • State of the art video technology, which allows us to compare students with tennis professionals frame by frame, allowing us to see similarities and areas where improvement can be made
  • Leveled instructional programs to maximize student success.
  • We have tennis lessons and tennis clinics available for all skill levels and levels of competitiveness.

At the Pennsylvania Tennis Academy (PTA), we offer a full service tennis training facility for all of your tennis needs. For the past 13 years, we have offered high quality, affordable instruction. We offer well-lit, newly surfaced courts, high performance drills and clinics, and all of the services you would expect from a world class tennis academy. Our core focus is providing the skills our students need to achieve their full potential.  

Whether you are a recreational adult, a high performance junior player, or anything in between, we can help you achieve your goals.  We want you to be a successful tennis player and to enjoy this lifelong sport.  For our junior players, we provide a structured educational environment, with a system in place to ensure success.  By providing students with the tools they need to face adversity, they become stronger mentally and physically both on and off the court.

At PTA, we have developed personal relationships with college coaches throughout the country. We act as an advocate for your child during this process, with constant communication with college coaches.  Players are limited in their contact, so it is very important that your coach continues communication on the players behalf.

We have coached many players who have gone on to play Division 1, 2, and 3 tennis, some on full-ride scholarships.  At a Division 1 school, tennis scholarships can be valued at over $150,000!  Our students have played in many of the major conferences, including the Ivy League, Big 10, Big 12, the Big East, and many more.

We are proud of our students, present and past.  Below is a partial listing of past students and their tennis placements.
