postpre, some of these kids were 6 years old. But all that tennis is not a guarantee of anything.
I have to disagree with Martina though on the lack of other sports. Its not that tennis kids do not do enough other sports, its that our most athletic kids do not play tennis, which she did say. Go watch a group of basketball players, football players, soccer players, and a group tennis class....then tell me where the best athletes are.
I have been watching a large drop in tennis program in our area. The fact is most of the kids who show up are not very coordinated and failed at other sports....so the parents get them into tennis. There are a few nice athletes, but they are rare.
