10 & UNDER TENNIS
Children ages 10 and under do not need a membership to participate in group tennis lessons at Elite Sports Clubs. If your child is participating in group tennis lessons, your child is allowed to take private lessons too. The 10 & Under tennis format formerly known as QuickStart tennis is a teaching format to help children ages 10 and under learn and play the game of tennis.
How the 10 & Under Tennis Lessons Work
The 10 & Under tennis format is taught on 3 different size courts with three different low compression tennis balls corresponding to the size of the court.
Each QuickStart lesson has an instructor to player ratio typically between 4:1 and 6:1.
Quickstart Tiny Tots – (Ages 3-4)
Your child’s fist 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.
Quickstart 1 & 2 – (Ages 5-10)
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 racket 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! Class is taught on either a 36′ Red Court, 42′ Red Court or 60′ Orange Court depending on age and ability.
Quickstart Advanced – (Ages 10 & Under)
This program is for players under 10 who have taken several sessions of QuickStart tennis and can rally the ball. Kids will gain better technical and tactical skills using QuickStart methods, which will help them to achieve early success for a greater lifelong enjoyment of the game.
This program is designed for our younger juniors that are starting to play tournaments using the orange and green dot ball. These players are focusing on development of a consistent stroke that becomes the cornerstone of rallying, as well as basic tennis strategies for match play.
