The staff of the Performance Tennis Academy believes that teaching character, honesty, integrity, self-reliance and independence is paramount to success in the sports of tennis. We further believe that it is essential that students develop equal skill proficiency in all areas of the court (i.e. backcourt, mid-court, etc.). Finally, it is our goal to teach percentage strategy and tactics for doubles and singles play and to aid each student in developing a game style consistent with their strengths, interests and goals.
QuickStart Tennis is an exciting new play format for kids to learn the game of tennis. The equipment and court dimensions are adapted to the age and size of children, just like is done in other youth sports. The tennis balls are lower in compression and don't move as fast, so they are easier to hit and allows kids time to get to the ball. Racquets are sized for smaller hands, and the courts are smaller making them easier to cover.
The children will be grouped by age and ability. The activites will be geared towards their specific age and skill level.
The basic philosophy behind QuickStart Tennis format is for kids to have fun learning and playing tennis. In addition to learning the skills needed by children to play the game of tennis successfully, we will make practice sessions fun and safe for you child. Our goal is to keep your children active and involved in tennis for years to come.
