How do Kids Learn Tennis?

Kids learn tennis by playing games.  The learning process starts with movement and coordination games with various types of tennis balls and racquets.   It then moves to playing Short Tennis over the net, and finally playing Mini-Tennis.  Learning occurs based on favorable growth of the brain and repeating games and tasks until children are proficient at them.  Learning in tennis is highly dependent upon a child’s age and the successful completion of games that develop fundamental skills.   Advancing in tennis is also highly dependent on age, mental and physical effort, and a competitive environment with several kids close in age and ability.  Often times, kids think playing a harder  version or full court tennis is best for them to learn tennis.  However, what usually happens is that making tennis harder by making the court bigger and the ball faster, only proves to move them ahead of their local peers and not really advance their skills.
