Tennis & Pickleball for Schools and Youth

One of the best things about the game of tennis is that it appeals to all ages. It's a fantastic sport in so many ways — not only does it teach reflexes and agility, it also improves discernment and other mental abilities. And of course, there's the benefit of exercise without the type of danger you'd encounter in contact sports!

Pickleball is a similar game, related to tennis and in fact was invented as an alternative to tennis that is even friendlier to young children. Adults love Pickleball too, though, and many players continue to prefer it throughout their lives.

Do you want to spread interest in tennis or Pickleball throughout the youth in your area? Tennis Court Supply can help!

Tennis and Pickleball Machines

Tennis ball machines are a great option for players who want to continue practicing even while solo, which makes them a must for your tennis facility. Some tennis ball machines are capable of introducing a random element to their shots, keeping players on their toes. With a tennis ball machine, players can practice to their hearts' content even without a partner, and with a much more varied experience than rebounding against a backboard.

What in the World is Pickleball?

Pickleball has been around for decades, but has been gaining momentum and popularity in the recent years. Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements from badminton, tennis and ping-pong. It is lauded as a sport that was created for all ages and skill levels. According to USAPA.org, there are more than 15,000 pickleball courts in the US and at least one location in each state.

Basic information:

Pickleball can be played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-sized court. The net lays close to the ground similar to tennis. Players use a solid paddle to hit a perforated ball (similar to a wiffle ball) over the net. Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles.

How to Play:

The game starts with a coin toss. The winner of the coin toss will have the option to choose whether or not to serve first. The serving team may also determine who will serve first. Serves are made diagonally, starting with the right-hand service-square and alternating each serve. The serve must clear the seven-foot non-volley-zone in front of the net and land in the diagonal service court.

Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed. There is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net to prevent “spiking.” The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until he or she faults. The first side scoring eleven points and leading by at least two points wins. Points can only be scored by the side that serves.
