Books, backpacks, lunch boxes and … tennis racquets?
That’s right, tennis is a great fit for schools, a safe, non-contact sport that can be played anywhere and by everyone.
Tennis is now sized right for age and ability, with shorter racquets, lower-bouncing balls and smaller courts – which means it’s an easy sport to set up on a playground or in a gym. A traditional tennis court is no longer required to get started with tennis, making it perfect for physical education classes and after-school programs like Kids’ Tennis Clubs.
