Hello JPTC Members & Friends –
Our beloved namesake John Powless passed away on Thursday, May 20th.
Some of you have been part of the tennis center since before John and Sheree purchased it back in 1979. Many of you got to know John before that time or during the 42 years since, on court and off. We grieve with you and share the loss his death brings.
Others among you are newcomers who didn't know JPTC with John in it. We regret that he didn’t have the chance to meet you and vice versa.
While his irreplaceable presence will be sorely missed, the game he loved to play and teach and the community surrounding it remains, allowing us to keep enjoying tennis and each other. Thanks for the many sympathies and memories, tears and smiles shared with us and our staff.

With the lifting of the Dane County-Madison mask mandate, masking is now optional with the exception of indoor JPTC Junior Group Classes for children under age 12. JPTC requests children under age 12 in official group classes continue wearing masks indoors until vaccines are made available to that age group. The decision to mask during outdoor JPTC Junior Groups is left to parental discretion. Thank you!
