Announcing 1st Annual Fremont QuickStart Tennis Tourney

QuickStart Tennis Logo Announcing 1st Annual Fremont QuickStart Tennis TourneyThe Fremont Family YMCA hosting their 1st annual Fremont QuickStart 8/10/12 & Under Tennis Tournament.

The tournament will be held December 12, 2009 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Registration deadline is Friday Dec. 4. Players will play a minimum of three matches and will be limited to one singles event.

WHAT IS QUICKSTART? The QuickStart Tennis format is about fitting tennis to kids based on age and physical size. By shortening the court dimensions, equipment (rackets and balls), net height and scoring system coupled with a play component, kids will develop better technical and tactical skills. When each of these elements is used together, kids will achieve early success and stay in the game. To give kids the confidence and ability to cover the entire court, score points and build an all-court game, the court is shorter and narrower for both age groups. The QuickStart Tennis format divides kids into two ages groups: the first is 8-and-under; the second is 10-and-under. We will also offer a 12 and under division. By putting kids with similar physical and social skills together, they have more fun while learning and developing skills.
