Tennis Fit for Kids .. New Program offered January 2013


Tennis Fit for Kids is a group activity featuring action-based tennis drills and games for children ages 8 to 12 of all ability levels, emphasizing movement and fun using music and pedometers. Using age-appropriate equipment, TFfK will develop an environment filled with tennis specific athletic skills while improving health and fitness. This program is designed to invigorate children’s tennis programming and will provide an option to help fight childhood obesity.

Benefits of Tennis Fit for Kids

  • Participants consistently elevate their heart rates into their aerobic training zone.
  • It is much more fun than working out on a machine or other fitness activities.
  • You get short cycles of high intensity workouts and periods of rest, almost like interval training.
  • It is a fun, group activity where players of all abilities enjoy tennis together.
  • While you are playing tennis, the focus is primarily on getting a great workout.
  • You naturally improve your game because you hit so many balls and repeat various shots.

    Hey Tony, I’d like to sign up Emma for this–maybe even twice/week if that’s offered? Do you have more details yet, or enough kids?

    Also, Emma has (surprisingly!) signed up for tennis team again this year, and we look forward to your spring lessons!

    Hi Tony,

    Happy New Year! I am interested to see if the tennis fit for kids is being offered for Roxboro Valley at this time. I would love to get Carter enrolled.

    Please let us know!
