Recreational On-Court Training

QuickStart for 7-8 Year Olds: Throw Ball Tennis

Throw Ball Tennis:

Players are on either side of the net on a 36-foot court. Players throw a foam ball underhanded over the net. The opposite player must catch it and throw it back after the ball bounces one time on the court. To make this game easier, players can use a larger ball, such as a playground ball and they are allowed multiple bounces before catching and they can move closer to the net, marked by a poly spot or donut before throwing back over the net.

Play can be a continuous rally or let them play points to see if they can toss the ball in the court and away from the opponent.
