Tennis Sized Right for Age and Ability

The Edwardsville Futures is a proud supporter of the 10 and Under Initiative of the United States Tennis Association. In 2013, 10 and Under lines were permanently painted onto the EHS tennis courts, giving area youth the opportunity to participate in the new program.

Due to the 10 and Under Tennis program, tennis is now fun and accessible to kids and families everywhere.

Benefits of the 10 and Under Tennis program include:

1. Your child will enjoy playing with balls that bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit.

2. Raquets are sized for small hands, making them easier to grip and swing.

3. Courts are smaller, so kids can cover them and have more success when they play.

4. Kids have more fun - and want to play more often.

5. Tennis is a sport that gets kids moving, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and can teach self-confidence and self-assurance.

6. Playing tennis, your child can make new friends in a safe, support environment.

7. Your whole family can play together anywhere - driveways, gyms and playgrounds can all be transformed into your very own tennis court.

By getting your kids into the game, you’ll be opening a door to a lifetime of enjoyment.
