  1. I have a son…not at high level yet, though ambidextrous. Can play both left and right forehand/backhand. Can’t make up mind which side to become more dominant in..as is comfortable with both…

  2. My kids have been wanting to learn how to play a new sport because they are very bored this summer. You mentioned that for ages 4-7, 30 minutes is plenty, kids ages 8-12 might consider 45 minutes, and 12 & older may be able to handle 60 minutes. Do most tennis instructors have the training to teach a wide range of ages? Finding an experienced tennis instructor might be a good idea.

    1. Hi Derek! It depends on the teacher. How old are your kids? If you’d like some help finding a tennis teacher, feel free to give us a call at 877-231-8505 and we’ll be happy to help!

  3. I do like that you go over what skills the tennis coach should have. After all, if it is a parent’s first time taking their kid to tennis practice, it can be a bit difficult to differentiate a good coach from a bad one. In particular, I’m glad that you emphasized how important patience is as a good tennis coach need to know that kids need time to develop their tennis skills.

  4. I was wondering what game to teach my kids. It was good that I found this site… I have learned how to give my kids a good tennis lesson. I understood it doesn’t matter what the kid’s age is, we can still teach him or her some great tennis lessons!

  5. It’s good to know that children ages 4 years old can get private tennis lessons. I think I will let them start with foam balls if the teacher who will train my kids will permit it. Since I want individualized attention to my sons, I’m sure that this decision is a good one.
