About USTA's QuickStart Tennis

QuickStart Tennis will revolutionize tennis in
America and produce champions!

That's what tennis legend Martina Navratilova's predicts for QuickStart, and Davis Cup Captain Patrick McEnroe echos her sentiments. A similar approach has been used in other countries for years, but here in America we're playing catch-up. That's why QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia (QCV) plans to Jump Start QuickStart.

QuickStart Tennis, the USTA's new format to teach kids 10 and under, was introduced in March 2008. QuickStart presents tennis in a fun way and is designed to help kids be successful from their very first swing.

  • Kid-sized equipment
  • Smaller court size
  • Lower net
  • Slower, lower-bouncing balls
  • Simplified scoring
  • Age-appropriate lesson plans
  • Teamwork
  • "Play to learn" instruction
  • Fitness and conditioning activities

With QuickStart, everything has been kid-sized -- racquets, courts, nets -- and instruction is age-appropriate.  Special low-compression balls slow things down and decrease bounce heights. Scoring is simplified and there's an emphasis on teamwork. There's no standing in line waiting to be fed a ball. The Instant Rally Progression technique has kids hitting with each other in under an hour. Kids learn while they're playing, and best of all, they're having FUN!

QuickStart also includes age-appropriate fitness and conditioning activities that work on agility, balance, hand-eye coordination, reaction time and footwork.
