Quickstart Tennis

Designed by the USTA, Quickstart Tennis  gives kids an opportunity to rally a ball over the net and play points as quickly as possible – all in a fun, small-group environment.  Quickstart Tennis uses the appropriate size racquet, ball and court to encourage new tennis youth to do more, faster!
