In a context in which the first experience of children with tennis was until recently, most of the time, overwhelming, the MPG launched in Romania the project of Tennis10, which encourages the little ones to discover tennis as an easy, fun sport. and healthy. Tennis10 takes into account some simple principles, by which children between the ages of 4 and 10 years are oriented to tennis, and with the help of specific training and competitions remain attached to this sport and take the first steps to become champions.
Tennis10 is based on two essential components: on the one hand, the specific training methods, accompanied by the equipment appropriate to the age and abilities of each child, on the other hand, the competition system, designed to complete the first elements. In other words, children play tennis on smaller grounds, with shorter missiles and lighter balls, in competitions whose scoring system generates short-term games. As a result, the first experiences on the tennis field of the little ones are lacking the exaggerated effort that most have so far removed from this sport.
According to the rules of the International Tennis Federation, Tennis10 includes three play stages (Red, Orange and Green), designed to help children progress. As they move, the size of the field, the length of the rockets and the speed of the balls increase, until the player advances to standard tennis. Regarding the specific game equipment, the brands producing sports equipment have been associated with the Tennis10 project, providing special game kits: fillets, rockets and balls.
In 2013, the project will be in its fourth season. All the details about the Tennis10 project are available online, at www.tenis10.ro.
