Welcome to QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia

We're growing tennis in central Virginia from the ground up . . .

QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia (QCV), a 501(c)(3) public charity, has taken the kid-sized QuickStart Tennis "play to learn" format to 23 formerly underserved counties in central and southside Virginia. Building on QuickStart's initial success in Charlottesville/Albemarle, we have gone where no QuickStart Tennis ball has ever gone before. We are the "tennis greenhouse" in central Virginia, growing tennis players and a public tennis tradition from the ground up.

Tennis -- it all starts in public schools with QuickStart!

In September 2008 there was one "pilot" school in Albemarle County. Today there are 140 QuickStart schools reaching more than 67,000 kids in central Virginia!!!

Field Day at Yancey Elementary


USTA Pro Circuit School Outreach at Yancey Elementary

American Tennis Professional Jennifer Elie, who was in town to compete in the Boyd Tinsley Women's Clay Court Classic, talked to kindergarteners and first, second and third graders at Yancey Elementary in Esmont, VA about what it's like to be a tour pro. She started tennis at age five and has been on tour for eight years. And there was some on-court activity for the Principal, PE teacher and some of the kids. LOTS of QuickStart FUN!

Keep a Kid on the QuickStart Pathway!!!



Kids are Learning to LOVE tennis!

What is QuickStart Tennis? QuickStart Tennis is the USTA's kid-sized, age-appropriate format for teaching kids ages three and up the "sport for a lifetime." Tennis has always taught kids valuable character-building life skills like integrity, sportsmanship, dedication, determination and teamwork. QuickStart has changed the teaching approach from traditional instruction to "play to learn" with a competency progression, which helps kids experience success early on. QuickStart adds FUN fitness and conditioning activities that work on agility, balance, coordination, footwork and reaction time. QCV is helping create "play pathways" in the communities we serve to get kids playing tennis in PE classes, after-school and out-of-school. Kids have so much FUN with QuickStart that they don't even know they're learning, and they're learning a lot. QuickStart brings out the best in kids naturally. Want to be a great adult? Be a QuickStart kid!        

The QCV Mission
QCV is an all-volunteer, grassroots Community Tennis Association (CTA) dedicated to promoting, developing and growing QuickStart Tennis in 23 counties and one independent city in central Virginia. Unlike most CTAs, which focus on a limited local area and offer a wide variety of established USTA programs, we are targeting a wide area with a concentrated goal of introducing, promoting and growing the QuickStart Tennis format.

Service Area: Counties: Albemarle, Amelia, Appomattox, Brunswick, Buckingham, Charlotte, Charlottesville (City), Culpeper, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Fluvanna, Greene, Greensville, Halifax, Louisa, Lunenburg, Madison, Mecklenburg, Nelson, Nottoway, Orange, Powhatan, Prince Edward, Rappahannock

At QCV we feel a little bit like pioneers or missionaries taking the message of the "sport for a lifetime" into new territories, but we're having a lot of FUN spreading QuickStart Tennis all around.

QCV is a member of the USTA, Tennis Industry Association and Center for Nonprofit Excellence and a registered USTA Community Tennis Association.
