Kidz Tennis is a fun format designed specifically for children under the age of 10, where both the children AND their parents / guardians are exposed to the necessary basic fundamentals of tennis and the important value sets and etiquettes of sports generally!
It's about being exposed to the basics of tennis and having fun. Children will learn a lifelong sport in a socially interactive, safe and happy environment using appropriate sized equipment and court dimensions. Whilst learning new skills and interacting with other kids in a familiar , manageable environment, they also build confidence and learn to appreciate their own worth.
Kidz Tennis finally addresses one of the most intimidating areas for children learning tennis; playing on an adult-sized court with adult-sized equipment, as well as using the same complicated scoring system. This intimidating combination often causes children to lose interest without ever really playing and experiencing the game, not to mention actually learning the skills necessary to succeed.
Kidz Tennis is designed to facilitate appropriate social interaction for children encouraging fun, co-operation and being pro active from their very first swing of the tennis racket.
Equipment is appropriately scaled down so that the game becomes tailored to their age and size.
Our programs develop sportsmanship, social skills and motor skills. They provide an enjoyable, interactive and challenging platform that will benefit children of all ages. We are also initiating a generic MBPKidz tennis rating in line with the adult ITN rating. The modules will include an assessment/workshop component with each skill level denoted by WHITE , YELLOW or BLUE colours to designate skill levels.
Progress will be measured using our Kidz Tennis Rating to move through the levels – competency tests will be carried out quarterly when program gains full momentum. The Assessments will include: Accuracy - hitting to target areas, balance and stroke production, movement/coordination skills and a "good sports" component. The later focuses on attitude, demeanour, personal interaction, self awareness and the like.
Overall, our Kidz Tennis programs are designed to develop the social aspects of tennis, promote early understanding of fundamentals, encourage early success and manageable competitive skills and the desire to learn and participate in a lifetime sport.
