About Us

Junior Tennis Development is a process – often lasting 10 years or more – that is filled with ups and downs, successes and failures, extreme joy and devastating disappointment. As Tennis Parents (and coaches), we are our children’s first line of support and defense as they learn and grow in this beautiful sport

Whether your child strives to be the next World #1, a top-level college athlete, or simply a good recreational player, ParentingAces is here to help! The articles and podcasts are designed to help all of us  – Parent, Coach, or Parent/Coach – do a better job at helping our kids reach their goals.

ParentingAces was started in 2011 by Tennis Parent Lisa Stone while her son was in the midst of his own Junior Tennis Journey. Even though the Stone Family’s own tennis journey is now complete, Lisa continues to work hard to gather and share information to help all Tennis Parents find success as they navigate the ever-changing world of Junior and College Tennis.

Lisa Stone is in regular contact with tennis federations, governing bodies, rating and ranking services, and other tennis media outlets to ensure YOU have the best and most current information.

The ParentingAces Podcast is a proud member of the Tennis Channel Podcast Network.
