Elementary Programs

10 & Under Red Ball (Ages 5, 6 & 7)

10 & Under Tennis is a new format to help kids ten and under learn and play the game. To make it easier for them, we changed a few things. The court sizes, the racquet sizes, the balls, the scoring system and even the net height have all changed.

Now any child between ages five and ten can start playing tennis almost immediately-even if he or she has never picked up a racquet before.

Like other popular youth sports, 10 & Under Tennis stresses the importance of play and team competition. It’s also now part of the USTA Jr. Team Tennis league and can be part of your existing programs as well. Which means that even more kids will have the opportunity to experience this new format, have fun playing with their friends and develop skills that will become the foundation of their game.
