Welcome to QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia

We've grown kid-sized tennis from the ground up . . . and now we're improving early childhood literacy!

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 31 formerly underserved counties and cities in central and southside Virginia. Our goal is to create happy, healthy, active and literate kids in the communities we serve.

We're moving and changing our name!!!

QuickStart Children of Virginia
(still QCV)

Williamsburg, VA

- Racquets for Reading!!! tops 10,700 kids since we kicked it off in November 2020! We emphasize nutrition and life skills with Go Bananas for QuickStart! cards and materials and promote childhood literacy for preschoolers and kindergartners with book giveaways and book grants -- all in the FUN QuickStart way. We receive awesome thank-yous like this slide show from Central Elementary in Fluvanna County.

QCV is also an advocate for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (DPIL). Three years ago only two of our counties had DPIL programs. Now there are 23 QCV counties with DPIL and more in the works. 63,000+ kids are enrolled statewide and the State funds 50% of the program costs.!

We keep score!!! In September 2008 there was one "pilot" school in Albemarle County (Greer ES). Today there are 215 QuickStart schools with tennis in PE classes in 28 counties and 3 independent cities reaching 101,000 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.
