Tennis Benefits

Tennis is your child’s perfect match!

It’s never been easier to get your family active and healthy!

With smaller courts, shorter racquets and balls that bounce lower, your child will achieve greater physical activity and feel successful right from the start. Play incorporates aerobic exercise, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and teaches self-confidence and self-assurance.

Tennis participation positively influences the lives of U.S. youth across all socioeconomic levels. Youth who play tennis are less prone to risky behaviors including binge drinking, cigarette smoking and marijuana use and are also less likely to be overweight or at-risk for being overweight.*

Tennis is one of the best ways to get your family active. Kids grow up fast! Through a variety of programs, they can continue to play or compete into high school, or even obtain a college scholarship through the USTA. There are numerous ways to stay in the game, and we’ll help you find what inspires you.
