Designed to teach beginners how to compete in the Junior Team Tennis USTA competitions. Winning teams will have the opportunity to move on to District competitions and Sectional competitions.

Scoring
The QuickStart Tennis format has a scoring system that is very simple. It helps kids understand the structure of the game and allows them to keep track of the competition as it unfolds. Conveniently, it also gives parents and players a start and finish time.

For the 10 and under age group, children play the best of three sets and the first to win four games wins a set. For the third set, the first player to win the seven points wins the match.

Balls
Kids need a ball that is sized and paced to their playing abilities. A regulation tennis ball moves too fast, bounces too high and is too heavy for the smaller racquet. Each age group, therefore, uses a ball better suited to their size and unique playing ability. For children aged 10 and under, a low-compression ball moves a little faster and travels farther than the ball used with the younger group, but it still has a lower bounce than a regulation ball.

Racquets
For an adult player to succeed at tennis, racquet control is essential. Same goes for kids. However, since kids are smaller than adults, kids have trouble controlling full-size racquets. They're too long, too heavy and the grips are too large. Kids need racquets that are proportionate in length and weight and have a grip that fits their smaller hands. For children aged 10 and under the appropriate racquet size should be 23" or 25".

Courts
Children aged 10 and under will play on a 60-foot long court.

School Gardens

RSH promotes gardening in schools to help encourage character development and responsibility in the early ages of childhood development. School gardening helps to teach these important developmental skills, while also educating children in science, health, and basic sustainability.

Thank you Wells Fargo - Bala Cynwyd for the $1,000 grant. We look forward to helping out some very fortunate kids this next summer so that they have the opportunity to attend Lavner's camps.
