The 10 & Under Program launch day was a success!
A good foundation provides the building blocks for success in every area in life. We want our little pros to love the sport while we teach them the values of passion, hard work and dedication.
At ProWorld Tennis Academy, We aim to instill a good work ethic while still maintaining the fun, playful environment that should accompany every sport at this age.
Our 10 and Under tennis program covers all the areas needed for a young player to excel.
Aside from learning about the technical, physical and proper biomechanical motor skills, they will learn self-confidence and self-assurance for a long and successful tennis career.
Proper Kids’ Tennis Equipment – A mix of 21-, 23- and 25-inch kids’ tennis racquets will help ensure that the appropriate racquets are being utilized for each player. With very young children (5 and under), it is recommended to use 19-inch racquets.
Tennis Balls – Kids need a ball that is sized and paced to their playing abilities. A yellow tennis ball moves too fast, bounces too high and is too heavy for smaller racquets. We make sure each age group uses specific kids’ tennis balls best suited to their size and playing ability.
For kids 8 and under, a red foam or low-compression red felt ball moves slower, bounces lower and travels less distance.
For 9-10-year-olds, a low-compression orange felt ball moves a little faster and travels farther than the red ball used with the younger group, but it still has a lower bounce than the yellow tennis ball.
Tennis Courts and Nets – Portable nets and throw-down lines allow our coaches to create multiple 36- or 60-foot tennis courts, on a variety of surfaces, for 10 and Under Tennis play.
