I am an adult with flat feet that plays tennis and is very active in the gym. Flat feet should definitely not hold your child back. I went the orthodic route in my earlier years and did not like the feel. Perhaps the technology is better today. I eventually just found wide shoes that were comfortable enough for an active lifestyle. New balance has good options and so does Babolat. The things to look out for are tired feet, and sore ankles and knees from the rolling that takes place from taking steps without an arch. If my feet really take a beating, after playing I roll my foot up and down on a frozen water bottle and it is very soothing. Best of luck.
