Barnes hosts WTT Junior Nationals, tennis legend
Ask almost anyone to choose whether tennis is a team or individual sport and the answer will almost unanimously be “individual.”
Which, according to tennis legend Billie Jean King, is part of the challenge in growing tennis and, particularly, getting young kids playing the sport.
“Just like a kid can sign up to play on a football or softball or baseball team, they should be able to signup to play on a tennis team,” King said. “Often when I ask kids to name their top three favorite sports, rarely is tennis on anyone’s list. What is on their lists are team sports.”
Even terminology commonly used with regard to tennis instruction needs to be altered, according to King.
