Tennis is a sport that can be learned at just about every age, but the best tennis players started when they were very young. Even if your child is not destined to become a pro, there are many benefits of tennis for kids and youth. It is a very active sport that increases hand-eye coordination, agility and balance. Because tennis involves almost constant running, it is a great way for your child stay fit and healthy.

Through playing tennis, your child will also improve his or her problem solving skills. Since tennis is a sport based on angles, geometry and physics, your child will have to develop a mental game to be able to compete. Tennis also involves strategic thinking – knowing your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses and playing accordingly.

Tennis teaches children accountability, because it requires a commitment to practice. It builds a child’s social skills of being able to “play well with others.” Tennis also teaches honesty because there’s often no umpire, which means the same children playing the match are the ones making the call on their opponent’s ball.
