LONDON, UK - Introducing tennis to young starter players in the right way is critical, and that's why the ITF, the world governing body of tennis, is changing the format for 10 and under competition to a smaller court and slower balls.

A series of YouTube videos has been produced by the ITF, and those can be seen below. First is a summary commercial for the new initiative, followed by several of the world's best players - WTA and ATP World Tour - commenting on the changes and reminiscing about their own days in junior tennis.


The ITF recommends players 10 and under do not train or compete with a regular yellow ball on a full court, but instead train and compete with a Red, Orange or Green ball on the appropriate sized court. Using the slower balls will help players develop the most efficient technique and implement advanced tactics, which in most cases could not be performed with usual format.
