10 and Under Quick Start

HTC_10_Under

Quick Start Tennis

The youngest players are able to learn and succeed as the game of tennis is paced to their playing abilities. A standard yellow tennis ball moves too fast, bounces too high and is too heavy for their smaller racquet. With 10 and Under Tennis, each age group uses a tennis ball better suited to its size and unique playing ability. At Heritage Tennis Club, we use modified fun-sized courts, nets, racquets, and balls.  See below for more information about age groups, equipment and more! 

Red (4-8 years)

Ball

75% slower than a yellow ball

Scoring - Quick Start Red is best of 3 games. Servers alternate every two points, and each game consists of the first person to win 7 points.

Description - Equipment for Quick Start Red is for a 36 foot long court. The low compression red ball is 15% larger than a real tennis ball and is much lighter.  Quick Start Red balls bounce at a slower rate, allowing participants to move to the ball and hit between their knees and waist.

50% slower than a yellow ball

Racquet

23"- 25"

Net Height: 3' middle 3' 6" on sides
