2014 Spring Junior tennis program (10 and under) - January 27-June1

Kids learn to play baseball by first playing t-ball; they use shorter, lighter bats and larger, softer balls. Kids learning basketball hoot baskets with kid-sized balls and lowered backboards; they play soccer on smaller fields with smaller goals. But when it comes to learning tennis, kids have learned to play on full size courts with highly pressurized balls and oversized racquets. Too hard!

But tennis has finally caught up. The USTA's 10 and Under Tennis Initiative follows the same logic as other youth sports like baseball or soccer: kid-sized courts and kid-sized equipment. The benefits are immediate. Within an hour kids are rallying, having fun and psyched for more. They're playing real tennis and having real fun... and isn't that the point?
