Tennis and Children

Parents are always looking for a good sport for their child and more and more parents are starting to turn to tennis as the perfect sport for their child.   The benefits of tennis go far beyond simply learning good sportsmanship skills, it also goes deep into learning good skills in terms of eye coordination and even hand eye coordination just to mention a few.   Deciding if tennis is the right sport for your child is sometimes easy and at other times a bit more complicated, but you should always take a cue from your child as you make the final decision.

The first step should be deciding if your child enjoys playing with large groups of people such as with football or soccer or if they prefer to play solo sports.   While tennis is  more of a solo sport while he/she is  competing against one opponent if playing singles or playing with a partner against two opponents,  rather than an entire field like many team sports involves.  

Your child should be relatively coordinated.   Tennis is said to be the most difficult sport due to the fact that you must hit a moving ball with your racquet.   Unlike, golf where the ball is stationary when you make contact with it.       Many children enjoy the challenge of being able to hit the moving ball while running on the tennis court.   Some  take this as the perfect time to get started really improving their skills and technique in order to protect themselves from the ball.      

You should also look at the benefits that tennis can provide.   It is a great form of exercise that allows your child to move around the tennis court a very great deal thus providing them with plenty of exercise.   At the same time, it is also possible to practice improved hand eye coordination, teamwork skills and even learn how to make quick decisions as a split second.   A child who has issues making a decision is generally not cut out for tennis, however a child that is able to just jump in and make a fast decision will generally do very well at tennis.

Another   benefit of tennis is  the ability to have your child  practice on  their own.   While many sports need a  partner to interact with  or  numerous  other people in order to actually practice,  you can practice your tennis strokes  by hitting on a solid wall.    A tennis ball and racquet can allow your child to easily practice almost anywhere, even at your home.   This allows your child to have the time to practice that they need which can be a huge help if you are looking for the best sport possible that will not potentially damage your property.

For parents who are looking for a competition sport,  tennis makes a wonderful choice, you can choose just how many or how few competitions you are comfortable with your child participating in and ultimately they can even play in the Olympics or as a professional if they are skilled enough when they get older.   This can allow you to consider that tennis is a great sport because it has a serious future ahead that is very much possible for virtually anyone to learn.   Read More…
