Dear parents, I would like to draw your attention to the comprehensive positive impact of tennis lessons on the development of children.

There is a hackneyed quote, “Tennis is chess in motion,” which gives a succinct definition of the game of tennis.

Professional tennis coaches for children from various tennis schools and tennis academies note (and, this is obvious) that in tennis training, at tennis camps, at competitions, tournaments and tennis championships, children develop all the physical qualities necessary to play tennis (speed, agility, endurance, flexibility and strength), and mental abilities (“Tennis is played with a racket, but won with a head”).

Tennis is an individual sport (martial arts).

Tennis matches, individual lessons (classes) in  tennis, as well as group tennis trainings develop healthy individualism, competitive spirit, the will to win in the child, help to cultivate discipline, diligence, dedication, friendliness and communication skills. All these factors will contribute to the formation of your child into a strong personality with high self-esteem, own opinion and clear goals.

Another important aspect in favor of  tennis is the low injury rate compared to other sports.

Tennis is a safe, non-contact game that will provide the child not only with good health, but also form the best personal characteristics in him that will help him in life, and Tennis For Your Children Will Be A Game For Life!

Individual and group tennis lessons for children

Based on the generalized experience of professional tennis coaches from all over the world, it is recommended to start teaching tennis to children at the age of five in group classes (training sessions) according to the “Play & Stay” program, which is recommended by the International Tennis Federation (ITF-International Tennis Federation).

In the practice of tennis training for children, individual, split and group lessons are used.

All group, split and individual tennis training sessions use special equipment that improves and speeds up the learning process (tennis walls, simulators, targets, etc.), and video analysis is also used in the classroom to better understand the training information from the coach.

  • Individual tennis training for children – one-on-one format with a coach.
  • Split tennis training for children – one coach and two students.
  • Group lessons in tennis for children allow you to meet other players of the same level, and in such group training there is a fact of rivalry between the players, which positively affects the achievement of the goals of such a group lesson. For children, a group tennis lesson is cheaper than an individual tennis lesson.

Tennis training programs for children.

The development of daily  tennis training for children is based on:

  • general and long-term goals of the annual plan;
  • specific and short-term training goals;
  • characteristics of the player (players);

There are several principles that should be applied to all tennis training for children:

  • setting goals for the current workout;
  • warm-up and relaxation;
