  • We provide the balls, and if you don't have a racquet yet, we have loaner racquets and at your first session, we can tell you what size to purchase when you're ready.  (generally $20 at Walmart/Sports Academy/etc.)
  • We separate the 4-5 yrs and 6-7 yr olds.  Our 4-5s use the Large Red Tennis Balls with a small tennis net.  Our 6-7s use orange dot balls and the standard tennis net.
