How To Teach Your Kid Tennis

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 75

Tennis is a great sport and very few people can argue with that statement. It has all the challenge of competition as well as being a great exercise with a lot of cardiovascular activity. It's the type of sport that kids would enjoy playing. It isn't that difficult to learn, but the person doing the teaching should be able to interact easily with younger people. A tennis lesson for a kid is really quite different from an adult tennis lessons.

There are a number of places to play tennis. Singapore has quite a few so that arranging for tennis lessons is not that big of a problem. Finding the right tennis coach for your kid, however, will take a little more time. This person has to be extremely patient. Kids do not have the concentration and mental discipline skills of an older person. They get very easily distracted particularly when things don't come to them easily. A good instructor will make the lesson a fun activity so that the child wants to keep trying. The tennis court should never be a place where a youngster doesn't want to go. The instructor takes his or her young student through the motions gradually. Groundstrokes are mastered first and then the overhead swing for beginner tennis. Kids group tennis lessons are sometimes a good way to make the instruction more of a social event where children get to know each other, and learn from watching.

Group tennis lessons can be fun but if the youngster shows a real desire to learn, then private tennis lessons are best. They still have to be as much fun as possible, though. The rules of the game can be communicated as a young person is learning proper technique. Tennis rules are in a class all by themselves and your kid needs to know how important the boundary lines are in the game and how important it is to keep the ball within the boundaries as it is served to the opponent's side. The child also should appreciate that if the ball bounces more than once on his or her side, the opponent gains a point. He or she will pretty much understand that failing to hit the ball back over the net will also result in a loss point. Teaching the rules at the same time as technique is being learned helps a child better understand why staying alert is essential to winning a game.

Some parents have visions of professional tennis whenever they see their children do well. That is not a good idea at all and is unfair to the kids. Tennis is meant to be fun at an early age and not an occupation. Putting too much pressure on a budding tennis player will only result in the youngster walking away from the game entirely. Teaching your kid tennis should be enjoyable and the child should think of it as fun. That way, a lifelong attachment to the game can be generated.It also fosters a healthy emotional attachment within the family.

I hope this article will provide some guidance for all would-be tennis players! If you find this article useful and would really wish to learn tennis, please visit: for our private and group lessons.
