If you’re looking to introduce your child to a sport, tennis is a great option for many reasons. It’s equally mental as it is physical, thereby promoting both strong psychological and physiological development. Through tennis, your child will develop hand-eye coordination, motor skills, balance and body coordination, all the while building acceleration, speed, leg strength, agility and flexibility. Mentally, children who play tennis develop skills and strategies that will also serve them well in life off the court. On the court on their own, often calling their own lines while competing, children learn to accept responsibility for their actions, decisions and mistakes, and they can begin to manage these more effectively.

With our recreational and high performance programs, tennis is also a social sport where kids will learn to have fun, interact with others and develop teamwork.
