Quick Start Program
For an adult player to succeed at tennis, racquet control is essential. Same goes for kids. But since kids are smaller than adults, kids have trouble controlling full-size racquets. They’re too long, they’re too heavy, and the grips are too large. Kids need racquets that are proportionate in length and weight and have a grip that fits their smaller hands.
Kids need a ball that’s sized and paced to their playing abilities. A regulation tennis ball moves too fast, bounces too high and is too heavy for their smaller racquet. Each age group, therefore, uses a ball better suited to their size and unique playing ability.
The QuickStart Tennis play format uses courts and nets that are scaled to the size and ability level of young children.
The scoring system has been modified as well. Gone is the traditional 15, 30, 40, deuce system.
