Kids play using red, orange or green balls that bounce lower, don’t move as fast through the air and are easier to hit. Racquets are sized for small hands and courts are smaller and easier to cover. The benefits are immediate and within a short time, kids are rallying and playing – and are excited to keep playing! Kids will have more fun – and feel less frustration.
