Tennis in Schools
Whether your child is picking up a tennis racquet for the first time or looking to continue their passion for the sport, there are plenty of play opportunities.
From elementary to high school, tennis can be played at any age and is open to all levels of play. Youngsters can ask their teachers about how they can start playing in their PE class or whether there are after-school programs they can join.
Outside of the classroom, there are various other opportunities for elementary- and high school-aged children, both competitive and non-competitive tracks are available depending on the ability and needs of the individual player.
Tennis is more than a sport. In addition to encouraging physical fitness and healthy living, it teaches important life skills like being responsible, gaining independence, self-confidence, treating others with respect, fairness and problem solving.
