10 and Under Tennis
Utilizing the QuickStart Tennis format, 10 and Under Tennis is a great new way to introduce children to the game.
Young players will use lesser compressed balls designed to bounce lower and move slower; encouraging the optimal swing mechanics and greater hitting success. Because children are smaller than adults, so are the courts and racquets they play with.
To play tennis, children need to first be able to hit the ball. USSI tennis programs encourage this development from the start, giving children maximum opportunities to play and develop, without waiting in lines. Ultimately, children will experience greater success and less frustration, leading most importantly to greater enjoyment!
