Children ages 5-12 will have the opportunity to try and learn “progressive tennis” in five locations in Mississauga. Progressive Tennis also known as mini-tennis, is a new way of teaching the sport which allows players 5 years and older to learn and play the game more quickly and successfully. Progressive Tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level.
The try event will include free tennis, games, free prizes, refreshments or BBQ, and high-energy tennis demonstration. Children will have the opportunity to experience the fun of mini-tennis using age-appropriate equipment, with the support of tennis professionals and volunteer supervisors. Try events will take place at Quenippenon Meadows Park, Meadowvale West Tennis Club in North Mississauga;
MLATC is a project piloted in Mississauga two years ago with an aim to introduce affordable and accessible tennis programs for children and families in gyms, community centers, community/indoor tennis clubs and schools. Based on the success of the Mississauga model, this project is now expanding across the country in major cities such as North York, Surrey, Edmonton, Montreal, Kelowna, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg.
