What is Rogers Community Team Tennis?
Rogers Community Team Tennis is a tennis program that provides participants with the opportunity to combine practice and play, with a focus on skill development through match play. Games are played using the Kid’s Tennis format, which includes appropriate equipment (based on age and skill level) with corresponding court sizes.
Players are placed on teams of similar strength and the format ensures that players play against opponents of similar ability. Scores are kept and the results are counted towards a team’s overall score to ensure that every participant’s efforts are rewarded.
Rogers Community Team Tennis operates much like a recreational house league and fills the gap between lessons and tournament competition. This Rogers Community Team Tennis concept provides the participant the opportunity to play right away and be part of a team. The program introduces tennis as a game, where playing as part of a team is the main focus.
Research shows that kids who take part in leagues not only enjoy them but see in increase in their skills development:
- 90% of parents would register their children in leagues again
- 30% of league participants have since registered for other tennis programs
- 80% of players would like to continue playing tennis
- 100% of parents saw improvement
- 90% of coaches saw improvement
- 90% of league organizers observed their players had more fun in leagues than other tennis programs
- 100% of league organizers recommend leagues to other clubs/organizers
