Welcome to QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia

We've grown kid-sized tennis in Virginia from the ground up . . .

Since 2009, QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia (QCV), an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) public charity, has taken the kid-sized QuickStart Tennis "play to learn" format to 27 formerly underserved counties in central and southside Virginia. Our goal is to create happy, healthy, active and literate kids in the communities we serve.

Want to be a great adult?

Play tennis! Read books!

Eat healthy! Have FUN!!!

Be a QuickStart kid!

COVID-19 UPDATE - We can't work with kids in-person for the foreseeable future, so we have found other ways to positively impact kids' lives. For this school year, we are emphasizing nutrition with Go Bananas for QuickStart! cards and materials and promoting childhood literacy for preschoolers and kindergartners with book giveaways and book grants. Please check out our Racquets for Reading!!! Initiative.

Tennis Brings Kids
Tennis Brings Families Together!
Tennis Brings Communities Together!

We keep score!!! In September 2008 there was one "pilot" school in Albemarle County (Greer ES). We held a 10-year celebration at Greer in September 2018. Today there are 212 QuickStart schools with tennis in PE classes in 27 counties and 3 independent cities reaching 99,000 kids in central and southside Virginia!!! We have deepened our impact with BrightSTARS -- Tennis for Me! in a dozen schools so far. Plus we've taken tennis to PE classes in another 37 schools with 16,000 students in communities outside our service area.

Through local community partnerships we can get QuickStart Tennis going just about anywhere!!! Let us know if we can help in your community.

Thanks to the USTA's new Net Generation Initiative, schools, parks & recreation departments and youth-based organizations can now qualify for free training and equipment. Check it out here.
