Kids are able to compete in tennis matches as soon they are ready! Can they keep score? Do they have a rudimentary knowledge of the basic rules of the game? Then they all set to play!
Under USTA JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS, Dedham Health has competitive leagues for all ages! This is a fun format which is a lot less stressful than competing individually. As kids play a mix of singles and doubles, they get to know their teammates over the season. There is never any pressure to win a match.
This year we are introducing a 10 & Under team, along with our 12, 14 and 18 Under teams.
10 & Under players play with a slower ball on a slightly shorter court so it’s really tennis at their level. Matches are shorter “first to 4” games. All other ages play a traditional set, first to 6 games.
In order to participate, kids do have to be a USTA member. However right now any child 10 & Under can join FREE! Simply go to https://membership.usta.com/ and use the code JOIN2PLAY.
We need a minimum of 3 boys and 3 girls to field a team. Kids play fun matches at local participating clubs twice a month on Saturday afternoons. The season runs from November-March.
