POP Tennis is a great way for everyone to have fun and exercise at the same time.  With a less lively ball, a smaller court, a lower net, and a shorter racquet, it is easy for everyone — especially children —to immediately play well, and thereby, gain empowering feelings of success, accomplishment, and confidence. It is these gifts — along with the ability to strategize — that children can take from their POP Tennis experiences and transfer them to other endeavors.

Other positives regarding POP Tennis, are that POP Tennis courts require less space, and the equipment is far less expensive than Tennis. For example, you only need a wooden paddle and one punctured tennis ball to play POP Tennis; and unlike a tennis racquet, which needs to be re-strung periodically, once you have an inexpensive paddle, it can last a lifetime. Obviously, the smaller space and lower costs, make POP Tennis an ideal sport/game for schools and communities with tight budgets and limited space.

Additionally, POP Tennis is an excellent means for youngsters to learn to play Tennis. It teaches them how to hit consistent groundstrokes, to volley, to move to the ball, to effectively strategize, and to compete. As a 7 year old, I fell in love with POP Tennis and played it regularly.  I then transitioned into playing Tennis at age 13.  Because of my POP Tennis experiences, I won a number of Tennis tournaments. Thereafter, I became the Captain and #1 Singles and Doubles Player on the Harvard University Varsity Tennis Team. I owe a great deal of my success on the court and in life to playing POP Tennis as a youngster.

Speaking for the United States POP Tennis Association, we aspire to bring POP Tennis into all schools and communities, so that everyone can experience the joy and empowering feelings of accomplishment that readily come with playing POP Tennis.
