ALBANY — The rules have changed for 10-and-under tennis. The USTA has now approved smaller courts, lower nets, low compression balls (lower bounce), easier scoring and shorter rackets to help 4-10 year old boys and girls be more successful playing tennis earlier and have more fun.

If you have a child that is 10-and-under (beginner to advanced level), bring him/her to Stonebridge on Saturday to try the new way to play tennis. Parents will attend a short briefing regarding the new concept and are then invited to help out. Different length junior rackets will be available to tryout/purchase if needed. There will also be other activities for all levels.

Following the Saturday “Play Day” there will be an opportunity to continue participating in the 10-and-under program each week throughout April and May and then in June at four Stonebridge Junior Tennis Camp sessions.

For more information and to sign up, contact Randy Jobson, Stonebridge tennis director, at (229) 889-0755 or email stonebridgetennis@yahoo.com.

Play Day cost is $10 a child.
