By following the 10 and under Tennis, established by the USTA, the shorter nets and smaller racquets and balls enable children 10 and under to learn tennis in an easier, more fun way. Scaling down the game enables children to feel overjoyed, instead of overwhelmed and provides them with the confidence and ability to cover the entire court.
Court – Mini nets are 18′ long and 2.9″ tall, allowing 3-8 Year olds Proper play.
Racquets – For children 9 and under, 19″, 21″, or 23″ racquets are used. Youth racquets are required not only for safety reasons, but to also teach students to learn how to control their shot.
We use a mix of foam and
low-compression balls depending on the activity.
The reason for the foam or low-compression is that
they move slower and bounce lower, giving students
more time to track the movement of the ball and
set up for the shot.Age 3-5 (36'
Court) Red foam ball
Age 6-8 (36' Court) Red felt ball
Age 9-10 (60' Court) Orange Felt ball
Age 11+ (78' Court) Green/Yellow felt ball
Tennis Shoes Required!!
Each child should please bring a bottle of water, towel, his/her racquet and sunscreen. Please have hat/visor or sunglasses to block sun during play.
