This fall,  Fun Unlimited is pleased to offer the most complete junior tennis program in the area. Whether your child is a beginner or an advanced tournament player, we have a high quality, fun-filled program designed especially for them.  If your child’s Into junior tennis, you should be into Fun Unlimited at Farmington Valley Racquet Club.


Quick Start Tennis & Advanced Quick Start Tennis (Ages 4-7)
Quick Start  Tennis is designed to introduce children between the ages of 4 and 7 to the game of tennis in a fun and rewarding way.  The basic concept behind Quick Start Tennis/10 & Under Tennis   (scaled down nets, smaller racquets, low compression balls & smaller courts) follows the successful precedent established in t-Ball (the kid sized version of baseball) and GLM (graduated length method) skiing.  In these programs, the elements and equipment of the sport were adapted to fit the needs of children athletes.  By matching the game to their size and athletic ability, Quick Start Tennis allows children to learn quickly and to have FUN and success playing the game.  Because they have such a good time, children love their first tennis experience and want to continue playing.
