Intro to Tennis: Ages 5-18

Midwest Youth Team Tennis

Anyone can start playing tennis, no matter their age or skill level! We’re introducing the greatest 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.



When your child plays tennis, they will achieve greater physical activity and feel successful right from the start because playing tennis incorporates aerobic exercise, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and teaches self-confidence and self-assurance.
