Tennis Sized Right
TGA utilizes the USTA’s “Tennis Sized Right” guidelines for youth tennis equipment and courts that are tailored to the size and ability of children’s bodies to allow for quicker success and enjoyment of the game. As players grow physically and develop stronger skills, they advance to playing on courts and with equipment that gets progressively closer to standardized tennis.
Reduced compression balls bounce lower and move slower.
Youth racquets have smaller grips so they're easier to hold and swing.
Courts are smaller so kids can cover more ground and make more shots.

Play Days are the second point on our player pathway because they are a great next step for anyone who had participated in a TGA Enrichment Program or any young athlete who wants to continue developing their game through organized play.
"TGA is very organized, communication is very good, teachers are knowledgeable and relate well to the children. I appreciate that there was foundational knowledge about the rules of the game in addition to the skill development and they taught the children importance of warm ups before exercise. Lifelong skills are being cultivated."
