With 10 and Under Tennis, kids enjoy playing with balls that bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit. Racquets are now sized for small hands, making them easier to grip and swing. Courts are smaller, so kids can cover them and have more success when they play. Kids have more fun—and want to play more often.
Tennis is a sport that gets kids moving, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and can teach self-confidence and self-assurance. Playing tennis, your child can make new friends in a safe, supportive environment. Your whole family can play together anywhere–driveways, gyms and playgrounds can all be transformed into your very own tennis court.
