Being able to rally a ball back and forth over a net with a partner is what makes tennis such a fun activity. Activities designed to help young players reach this goal are necessary tools to getting children playing during their first practice. The USTA QuickStart Program is an exciting new play format for learning tennis, designed to bring kids into the game by adapting the equipment, court dimensions and the scoring to the age and size of children-just like other sports do. QuickStart Tennis enables kids to have more enjoyable experiences early on in the learning process-and having fun is the number one factor in keeping kids involved. This format will be incorporated into camps, clinics and lessons for the young members of Fair Valley.
