The equipment we use for our younger groups (children ages 3 to 12) are 2 different kinds of low compression balls. We encourage them to use rackets ranging from 19 to 26 inches in length. We also have the portable nets which are lower then the standard nets and make the game scaled to the size of the child.
If you are not sure what size of racket you should get for your child, please have a look below:
19 inch racquet for age 3
21 inch racquet for 3 to 4 year olds
23 inch racquet for 4 to 6 year olds
25 inch racquet for 7 to 10 year olds
All children grow at a different rate so these sizes are approximations for their age. To find the proper size for a racket, the child should place the racket under their arm. The racket should be the same length as the child’s arm from armpit to fingertips. If the finger tips go past the end of the racket then it is too small. If the fingertips don't reach the top of the racket then the racket is too big. Always keep in mind that it is okay to have a racquet that is slightly bigger as the child will grow into it.
The cost of a racquets is $31.50 (tax included), please contact us to receive our discount if you wish to purchase more then 3 racquets.
