TENNIS patron and sportsman-businessman jean henri Lhuillier has thrown his full support behind the Philippine Tennis Association (PTA) which was organized August last year to identify and train young players who have the potential to make the top 100 of the International Tennis Federation junior rankings.

“I have been supporting Philippine tennis for a long time under PJ Lhuillier group. We have sponsored men’s professional events, we run around 18 junior tournaments every year, and we also support our national teams in the Southeast Asian Games, Asian Games, and the Davis Cup,” said Lhuillier, who plays a mean game of tennis himself.

He has also been involved in the development of Filipino coaches and with the PTA, Lhuillier is looking at a more focused and effective program of discovering and training new talents in the grassroots level.

“We believe that it is just a matter of time before we will be able to develop a Filipino player from the many young talents we are discovering in the countryside, more so if we are able to get them tennis scholarships in American colleges,” concluded Lhuillier.
