Description

TEN AND UNDER TENNIS introduces young children to tennis skills in a non-threatening manner, developing eye-hand-ball skills which progress easily into racquet handling. Racquets and courts are tailored to a child's size. Slower and lower bouncing balls ease a child into moving to the ball and rallying over the net. A variety of fun, fast- paced games, with every child constantly involved, introduce the forehand, backhand, volley, serve, and footwork. Children participate in rotation through various skill stations, then small group contests, and finally games that introduce scoring and rallying over the net. 

As children progress to rallying at least 5 times over the net, they will be promoted to team play on the 36' court. When they have developed either an underhand or overhand serve, as well as depth and direction control in their rallies on the short court with mini-net, they will be promoted to the orange ball 60' court.
