Super Stars Tennis Programs
Super Stars Tennis has introduced thousands of children to the sport of tennis in the New York metropolitan area. Our USTA Quick Start format makes learning tennis easier and more fun than ever! Our programs introduce tennis sized right for kids so they develop skills and have fun right from the start. Using modified equipment and courts tailored to a child’s size and age, kids will learn, rally, play and compete quickly and in a way that is both enjoyable and rewarding. The Quick Start format fosters slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls, shorter and lighter racquets, and smaller courts. The smaller courts will give kids the confidence and ability to cover the entire court. The shorter, lighter racquets will allow kids to control the racquet and discourage extreme grips. The balls will slow play down, bounce at a height equal to the kids’ playing abilities and provide longer rallies, allowing kids to better develop their court skills, tactics and strategy. All classes are taught by our staff of tennis teaching professionals, who will teach your child the game of tennis, the sport of a lifetime. From the young and eager beginner to the competitive advanced teen player, Super Stars Tennis offers tennis for all ages and levels of children.
