Play Days are designed for kids – from those just learning to compete to those who are already in competition – to play in a fun, non-threatening yet competitive environment. Over duration of a few hours, these events give kids the opportunities to play – whether they are getting ready for the next step of playing sanctioned tournaments or if they already are competing and are looking for additional play time. Emphasis is placed on participation, effort and sportsmanship.

Tennis is one of the best ways for kids to become healthy, confident and physically fit. The very nature of the game of serving, returning and rallying makes tennis a highly active kids sport with plenty of movement, starts, stops and direction changes. As such, tennis is a great cardiovascular activity, and the movements used on the court help develop enhanced balance, agility and coordination. Mental focus is also sharpened through tennis because decision-making and concentration are necessary every time a ball is hit.
USTA 10 & UNDER GUIDELINES
Smaller and Lighter Racquets – Kids’ tennis racquets are designed for small hands, making them easier to grip and swing.
Adjusted Scoring – The scoring for youth tennis matches is modified to allow for shorter matches and more competitive experiences for your child. Children just want to play, and the more they can play the faster they will develop.
