From finding the right equipment to programs in your area, USTA Florida is focusing on beginner adult play opportunities across the state this spring.

Want to grab a friend and practice, or get the family on the court? Start off with lower-compression balls for kids or adults that are easier to keep in play and rally — and for children, kid-sized racquets for better control and success.

Need to find a place to play? Tennis courts are all over Florida — at local parks, tennis clubs, and schools. You don’t event need a court if you have a mini-net, racquets and balls, you can create a court anywhere.

Other ways to tennis are getting your feet moving with Cardio Tennis, the high-energy fitness activity combining the best features of the sport with cardiovascular exercise. Cardio Tennis delivers the ultimate full body, calorie-burning aerobic workout. Find a Cardio Tennis program in your area.

Another newer way to tennis is social play. USTA Florida adult social leagues and one-time play events stress fun and sociability over competitive play. Organized in 4-6 week leagues or one-time events, social play offers the fun and sociability of tennis without a multiple-month commitment. Find social play events near you.
