QUICKSTART TENNIS CLOSED QuickStart Tennis is a new format to help children 10 and under learn and play the game of tennis. To make it easier for them, a few things have changed.

- The court size.
- The racquet sizes. 
- The tennis balls. 
- The scoring system.
- The height of the nets. 
The changes really work, because now any child between ages 5 and 10 can start playing tennis almost immediately - even if he or she has never picked up a racquet before. Just like other popular youth sports, QuickStart Tennis stresses the importance of actually playing the game of tennis and getting involved in a team competition. QuickStart Tennis is also now part of the USTA Jr. Team Tennis league and Clarke-Oconee Tennis Association (COTA) Junior Team Tennis. This means that even more children will have the opportunity to experience this new format, have fun playing with their friends and develop skills that will become the foundation of their game. Participants should wear sneakers. All other equipment is provided.
