Kids 10s @ APS Tennis
APS Tennis introduces the new format for children between ages five and ten years old. The format is tailor-fitted where kids can start playing immediately even if they haven't picked-up a racket before.
Since most kids love team competition, it is aimed to stress the importance of play and team games. The net height is adjusted and the balls used are easier to control giving young players immediate sense of control as they keep the ball more in play.
Studies suggest that if young children are immersed in a welcoming environment that allow for multiple play opportunities, enjoyment is thus enhanced.
