Quick Start Levels

QUICKSTART ACADEMY

This is for students from beginner level to advanced levels from ages 4-17 years old. Quickstart is a fun and successful way for students to learn to play REAL tennis. It is designed to bring kids to the game by developing important skills, utilizing smaller racquets, slower and lighter balls, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring, all tailored to the age, size and skill of the student. Students will learn technique, strategy and tactics appropriate for various ages and skills. It also prepares students for match-play through league tennis.
