USTA 10 And Under Tennis


Now more than ever it is easier to get your kids involved in the great sport of tennis. 10 & Under Tennis provides fun activities for kids of all ages and abilities. With equipment perfect for children ages 3 to 10, 10 and Under Tennis is now the place for your child!

10 and Under Tennis was designed with the child in mind. We use smaller racquets and slower balls that allow children to get acclimated to the sport in a fun environment.  We host family oriented tennis festivals and friend-focused tennis teams (Jr. Team Tennis) throughout USTA Southern, all of which are fun for the entire family.

Want to make a court in the middle of your driveway? Want to invite friends to be on your team after school? 10 and Under Tennis has it all for you. So come sign up and start having fun today! Ready to get your child on the court?
