Tennis for Youth

Getting Started 


with Net Generation

Tennis provides numerous benefits beyond just good health and activity. Kids learn teamwork, communication, balance, agility, hand-eye coordination, problem-solving and self-reliance, all while having fun and making friends.


We’re introducing the game to a whole new generation. Tennis is more fun and easier than ever. With smaller courts, shorter tennis racquets and balls that bounce slower and lower, beginner players – especially kids – can learn more easily and quickly.


Net Generation is the USTA’s youth (ages 5-18) tennis brand, dedicated to welcoming millions of new players to the game by focusing on empowerment, unity, and play. Net Generation provides a single registration platform for programs across the country and also requires all deliverers to have completed a background screen and an education program for working with minors. 


Whether you are a beginner or a high school star, the Next Generation of Greats are in Net Generation – Official Youth Tennis of the USTA.
