Kids' QuickStart Tennis Clubs

Kids' QuickStart Tennis Clubs -- More Tennis! More FUN!

A Kids' QuickStart Tennis Club is an after-school or out-of-school program that allows kids to sample tennis through supervised play and FUN interactive activities. The program is a great way for kids to be introduced to tennis in a safe,open-play setting at schools, parks, youth centers and tennis facilities. No courts, no instruction required!

The "clubs" offer kids the opportunity to have FUN, gain confidence and make new friends, all while enhancing their social and physical development.
