"The USTA has launched Youth Tennis Progression which was designed to create a greater experience for children beginning and developing in tennis competition, to ensure that young players are competing at appropriate levels of play as they progress through competitive stages based on age, participation and achievement." (USTA)
Using different tennis balls for certain ages and heights allows the kids to easily have more fun playing the sport. With the lower compression they are able to hit the tennis ball at their hip height allowing for proper technique to be established at a very young age. This leads to less injuries and major changes when they age.
ALL LOCAL RED, ORANGE, and GREEN BALL TOURNAMENTS WILL BE POSTED UNDER OUR UPCOMING TOURNAMENTS PAGE
