10 & Under Tennis Lessons
Elite’s 10 & Under tennis lessons are 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 their age, size, and ability. By kid-sizing the equipment (balls, racquet, and net height) and modifying play components, kids can quickly develop tennis skills such as rallying.
USTA Red Ball Progression (Ages 3 & 4)
Your child’s first tennis experience establishes a foundation for hand-eye coordination, basic movement, listening skills, team cooperation, and athletic tennis skills. It’s a fun-filled introduction to the great lifetime sport of tennis. This class is taught on a 36′ Red Court.
USTA Red & Orange Ball Progression (Ages 5 & 6, 7 & 8)
A focus on introductory rallying skills and beginning stages of cooperative tennis. Students will learn how to initiate a rally, how to move and judge a ball, and racquet control. As they advance, students learn basic tennis tactics and athletic skills, while developing social skills and group attitudes. They will be playing by the end of the session, guaranteed! Classes are taught on either a 36’ Red Court, 42’ Red Court, or 60’ Orange Court, depending on age and ability.
USTA Orange & Green Ball Progression (Ages 9 & 10)
This program is for players who may have taken several sessions of tennis and can rally the ball. Kids will gain better technical and tactical skills using these methods, which will help them to achieve early success for a greater lifelong enjoyment of the game.
