2024 JUNIOR AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Progressive Tennis uses a system of modified courts, racquets and balls scaled to maximize learning for different levels and/or age groups. Just like many other sports (e.g. Mini-soccer, T-Ball, etc.), scaling the game down to the size of the child speeds up the learning process and makes the game more fun.

The colour-coded system is fully endorsed by the International Tennis Federation and has been adopted by the majority of countries worldwide.
