Learning Through the Progressive Tennis Pathway
Progressive tennis uses larger decompressed balls to allow for easier exchanges, using mini sized nets and a smaller court sizes, which is proportional to the size of the student. Young players are properly equipped to enjoy rallies and learn the fundamentals of the game early on. Skills are developed much quicker, allowing for an easier transition to full court play.
