10 and Under Tennis

Mantua offers the United States Tennis Associations’s 10 and Under Tennis program. What is 10 and Under Tennis? It’s tennis sized right for age and ability. Smaller courts, shorter racquets, and balls that bounce lower now make it easier than ever for kids to play tennis and develop a love for the sport right from the start! Here are some key aspects of 10 and Under Tennis

  • Courts are smaller and easier to cover
  • Balls bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit
  • Three levels of tennis balls: for kids 8 and under, 9 to 10 years old, and over 11
  • Racquets sized for small hands that are easier to grip and swing
  • New scoring rules that allow for more and shorter matches
