Why it’s so important to your tennis community
Acknowledges that the USTA has “battled the trend (of decline in outdoor activities) somewhat successfully with a forceful campaign to recruit young players” – Feb 21, 2008
The 60 ft courts are already becoming popular for adults to better allow singles play for seniors, those with bad knees, wheelchair players, obese players or anyone who is “mobility challenged”….which is exactly what small kids are relative to full-size courts, as they lack stride length. While kids may have tons of energy, they struggle to cover a full size court, particularly with regulation balls. A smaller court in conjunction with slower balls affords getting to more balls, providing enjoyment for anyone who gives it a whirl.
