Tennis is Now Sized Right for Age and Ability!
Other youth sports have long used equipment, fields and courts scaled to the size of young kids. Now it’s tennis’ turn! With tennis sized right, kids won’t have to play tennis like adults anymore, making it easier than ever for them to get in the game.
At NETRESULTS Tennis, we strive to make learning and playing tennis fun and easy for all children; the USTA’s guidelines for youth tennis equipment help us achieve this goal. With tennis sized right, balls bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit. Kids’ tennis racquets are sized for small hands, making them easier to grip and swing. And courts are smaller, so kids can cover the tennis court and have more success when they play!
These innovative changes help kids achieve greater success – and a lot more fun – right from the start. And, youth tennis is a great way to get your kids active! It’s a sport that gets kids moving, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and can teach self-confidence and self-assurance – all while allowing them to enjoy themselves in a safe, active environment.
By getting your kids into the game, you’ll be opening a door to a lifetime of enjoyment.
