10 and Under Tennis is an exciting new play format for learning tennis, designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing specialized equipment, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring, all tailored to age and size. It’s the fast, fun way to get kids into tennis– and keep them playing. This enables kids to practice and play real tennis and allows them to have fun and learn at the same time. Most importantly to fall in love with tennis!
We run two basic 17 weeks sessions between September – January and February – June which is a perfect duration to develop necessary tennis skills with little kids judging from coaching experience. But you can sign up for a 17 week long session anytime. Another option YTA offers is to sign up for an 8 week session and extend to a 17 week session when you are sure you loved it and save money that way!
We run an 8 week and a 17 week sessions.
