Similarly one may ask, how do I start my child playing tennis?
You can start very informally when your child is 2 or 3 by introducing them to a tennis racket and ball and showing them how to hit for fun. You will want to make sure to keep it light and developmentally appropriate. Even just bouncing a tennis ball up and down is a way for them to get more familiar with the sport.
In this manner, how do I get my 4 year old to play tennis?
Can 5 year olds play tennis?
So at what age should your child start playing tennis? The consensus answer from all the coaches I know and work with is 5-years-old. If your child is precocious, he or she can even start at age 4. As a coach myself, working with children age 5 is fine if they can focus and enjoy tennis.
The general consensus is 4-5 years of age is the best time to get kids started with tennis. It’s never too late, though, to get a child into the game! Whether 4, 14 or 44, tennis is a game that can be enjoyed for life.
Your chances are extremely low. At the WTA level, those players started playing tennis at age 4–7. Age 15 is just too late to become world ranked on the WTA tour. If you are blessed with natural, great athleticism your best bet would be a lower level college player and even that is a long shot.
Here are some tips for an effective communication and collaboration:
- Get to know your child’s coach.
- Respect the opinion of the coach and leave the responsibility of training to him.
- Evaluate your child’s progress.
- Talk to other parents in order to make new friends and understand the world of tennis.
