Required Equipment

With the exception of National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) Program, students may use a CityTennis loaner or "demo" racquet for their first three classes. After three classes, all students should have their own racquet. If you or your child needs to purchase a racquet, our tennis professionals will provide guide and assist you in proper racquet selection. Factors to consider include: grip size, frame weight, head size, flexibility, composition and proper stringing. We recommend that you "demo" any racquet before purchasing. Your instructor can bring "demos" to class for your use.

What Size Tennis Racquet Does My Child Need?

You want your child to play with the largest racquet they can swing easily. Racquet size can vary if your child is smaller or larger than typically at their age. The following suggestions are based on average size.

Age 5 should play with a 21" racquet Ages 6-7 should play with a 23” racquet Ages 8-10 should play with a 25” racquet Ages 11-14 will play with a full size racquet. Make sure the racquet is lightweight and the grip size is 4 – 4 ¼ (not larger)

Class Advancement

Advancement through class levels is a very individual process. Some students will be ready to advance after only one session at each level. Other players, because of different levels of natural ability, practice time, and prior experience, may need to repeat a level before advancing to the next one. To ensure that students are at the correct level, CityTennis assigns a rating to each student so they know exactly what level they are. After consulting with CityTennis, please register for the next session as soon as possible to ensure a spot in the desired class.
