We appreciate you taking the time to help us with our wish list to provide a quality tennis program to our students. Tennis equipment is needed to make our program and their experience a success. Our goal is to increase the number of inner city tennis players by establishing a comprehensive program that is affordable for every participant.
To help make tennis affordable to students we need racquets in every size for children K thru 8th grades. This provides them the opportunity to play and also lowers the cost of participating. Note: tennis racquets don’t have to be new racquets.
We also need portable nets, training aids like foot-ladders and cones which help our coaches provide kids with the physical fitness part of our program. We also need to maintain the maintenance of our rackets with new strings, over grips, and vibration dampeners.
Last but not least we need lots of tennis balls. In 10 and under tennis we use the different colored tennis balls like the green ball, orange ball and red ball. These balls allow smaller kids the opportunity to learn faster. At eleven years old we use regular tennis balls along with a slower green dot ball to advance their skills.
