NET GENERATION (Ages 10 and Under)
The Net Generation Tennis format (a USTA initiative) works by getting kids into the game immediately and progressing them based on their ability. For kids who have never played, within the first hour of stepping onto the court they are actually playing the game, rallying with one another, moving around, and having fun. Kids who have played before are challenged with an ever-increasing playing surface and balls that progress towards a standard ball.
- Ages 4 and Under – lessons will be taught on 36 foot courts with foam balls
- Ages 5 to 6 – depending on ability, lesson might be taught on 36 foot court and a foam ball or 60 foot courts and a red dot ball
- Ages 7 to 8 – lessons are taught on 60 foot courts with a red dot ball
- Ages 9 to 10 – lessons are taught on full court (78 feet) with a green dot ball
