KATS (Kids at Tennis)

The Society for Kids at Tennis (KATS, www.kidsattennis.ca) provides free tennis lessons and equipment to families experiencing financial barriers (application required). Using the “progressive tennis” approach recommended by Tennis Canada, the KATS program uses smaller racquets, smaller courts, lower nets and low compression balls. This approach helps kids to develop confidence in their ability to hit the ball, learn quickly, and most of all, have fun playing the sport!  Kids will be introduced to the fundamental skills which form the foundation for future development. 

Location:  Banfield Park Tennis Courts, Craigflower Road
