Tennis Games and Activities for Kids


Tennis games and activities for kids provide fun in the sun and plenty of outdoor exercise. The ping of a ball or birdie on racquet strings signals a fast-moving, action-packed game.

But while organized racquet sports require expensive equipment and regulation courts, these games can be played at home in the yard or driveway, or on the sidewalk. And beyond just being fun, these activities will improve skills kids need to succeed in playing tennis or badminton on actual courts.

Follow the links below for tennis games and activities that your kids can play.
