Tennis

Quick start tennis is a revolutionary method of teaching tennis introduced by the United States Tennis Association in order to make the court and equipment compatible with kids aged 3 to 14 who are beginners to the sport. Smaller court size, smaller racquets, and modified tennis balls that bounce a little higher all lead to a fun and accelerated learning experience. Students are taught age appropriate skills in a dynamic and engaging environment.
