JR. TENNIS LESSONS
10 and Under Tennis using the QuickStart tennis play format takes a new and better approach to introducing kids to the game. Balls are lower in compression; they bounce lower and don’t move as fast so are easier to hit. This allows kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized for small hands and the courts are smaller and easier to cover. Full sized courts can be reconfigured to accommodate up to six 36-foot courts, so instead of waiting inline, kids can spend their time playing. When it comes to learning tennis, we still make children play on adult sized courts with yellow balls and adult-sized racquets. They’re playing real tennis and having real fun!
