QuickStart 10 & Under Tennis at Woburn Racquet Club!

What is 10 and Under Tennis with QuickStart?
10 and Under Tennis with QuickStart is an exciting new play format for learning tennis, designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing specialized equipment, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring, all tailored to age and size. It's the fast, fun way to get kids into tennis-- and keep them playing.

QuickStart Tennis includes six specifications including age, court size, racquet length, ball weight and speed, net height and scoring format. This enables youngsters to practice and play real tennis to scale and allows them to play and learn at the same time—as opposed to the traditional model of learning the skills before playing the game.

Tennis Sized Right for Age and Ability.
  • Courts are smaller and easier to cover
  • Balls bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit
  • Three levels of tennis balls: for kids 8 and under, 9 to 10 years old, and over 11
  • Racquets sized for small hands that are easier to grip and swing
  • New scoring rules that allow for age/ability match play Click to add a short introduction here.

Classes may be added/deleted depending on class enrollment.
