When the children reach this age, they have already quite developed their psychomotor skills, their coordination and attention, adapting themselves much better to the demands of the game.
This is the perfect age to let children experiment with racket shots, balancing the ball and coming into contact with the basic technique of this sport. The intent is to help children become accustomed to the court, to its dimensions, to the handles and weight of the rackets and balls. In addition, the little ones will begin to strengthen their speed, agility and reflexes, toning at the same time all the muscles in their body
