USTA Junior Team Tennis for 10 and Under With youth tennis, kids play on shorter courts, with smaller racquets and with slower moving, lower bouncing balls. Kids play tennis made just for them, so that they have a great time and want to keep playing and improving.
We'll guide you through the many ways kids can get started in the game, playing and competing, so that they can have a great time with their friends.
Play at Home The main reason kids play sports is to have fun. Tennis, sized right, provides constant action to keep your child engaged, and you don't need to go to a tennis facility or have a professional court to play. Create a court with chalk lines and a piece of string for a net. Play at home, at the playground, in a gym or on any flat, hard surface. The most important thing is to have fun.
Equipment Youth tennis utilizes smaller courts, shorter racquets and slower moving, lower bouncing balls - equipment that is sized perfectly for kids. Find out which racquets, balls and courts are right for your child.
