Thanks for all your feedback regaurding Mini Tennis!
Tennis has been played for years in all kinds of formats!
Beach tennis in italy!
and the mordern game we all know.
for years tennis federations have used the mini tennis game as a way to scout talent in young junior players
In programs in germany the DTB would have local coaches run weekend Mini tennis tournament and run some timed sprints and check eye hand skills! the players with talent were offered chance to train with coach in area that was getting $$$$ from german tennis federation!
This is a great program when good coaching is in place!!
there is so much a great coach can spot when a young player plays mini tennis!!
Footwork and eye hand skills surface immediately.
you can spot a gamer in seconds> a kid that loves to play a game!!
does not mater what the game is!!
Do you like to play games!!
this is not spam !!
check out the site and fun games kids play!
I had the chance once during a high level fourm with USTA offical with Player development to ask a few questions!!
This was 8 years ago at USTA teachers coference in New York!
Was told bye director of player development that we know what are German comrads are up to!
Basic blow off!
there is no program in place to trak young new raw talent!!
with funding from the federation!
so many young american kids should be playing tennis!!
there has to be a place where the kids can play the sport!!
does not have to be Tennis Court!
Look at what other countrys are doing!!
Look who is playing big time College Tennis!!
finding young talent and training them!!
any one can learn to play tennis in a year of less!
five years to become tennis player!
ten years to make a champion!
well once again thank you for responding to my post!!
