St. Johns Racquet Center and Portland Tennis & Education
St. Johns Racquet Center (SJRC) is located in the heart of historic St. Johns in North Portland. This is a public facility with three indoor tennis courts.
SJRC is the home of PORTLAND TENNIS & EDUCATION (PT&E). PT&E is a non-profit organization that offers one-on-one tutoring, group tennis instruction, life skills instruction, and parent advocacy and training to K-12th grade participants in our year around program. We are dedicated to the academic success and lifelong health of Portland’s underserved youth, supporting them in becoming well-rounded learners, exceptional athletes, and global citizens.
In October 2012, Portland Tennis & Education acquired SJRC in a lease with the City of Portland. Every time you play a play at SJRC you are "playing a point" for our Scholar Athletes. All of the revenue generated by the SJRC is invested into programming for our Scholar Athletes and used to support our mission of making tennis and education accessible for underserved youth in Portland.
