QuickStart Tennis follows the same logic as other youth sports like baseball or soccer, which use kid-sized courts and kid-sized equipment. At Capitol City Tennis, kids play on courts and use balls and rackets designed just for them!
8 & Under QuickStart

Players will work on general movement fundamentals,hand-eye coordination, and simple racquet games using the USTA QuickStart format, low-compression balls and smaller racquets!

8-under : 36′ court : Red Foam balls

10 & Under QuickStart

With the 10-under lessons, kids have a weekly practice and a match on the weekend. The 60′ court is used, 25″ rackets or smaller, plus orange low-compression balls (so they don’t bounce over their heads!).
They will actually learn to play the game of tennis, and not just how to hit a forehand and backhand! Never played before? No problem! Every match has a “court monitor” so players have help with court etiquette, line calls, and rules. Double faults are not an issue because we use a “coach’s feed” where the ball is fed into play if the player is unable to get one of their two serves in the service box!

10-under : 60′ court : Orange dot balls
13 & Under QuickStart

This class is the first or second step for kids entering grades 6-8th grade who are still fairly new to tennis. Emphasis will be on stroke production, technique, learning how to play the game, keeping score, and fitness.

13-under : 78′ court : Green dot balls
