Lou Marino is a USPTA Cardio & Youth Tennis Coach with 50 years experience playing and teaching tennis. He has lived and taught in the greater Hilton Head/Bluffton area since 2003.
This is a tennis program focused on beginners, ages 5 through 10, and follows the current United States Tennis Association (USTA) guidelines for “Youth Tennis.” From it’s (USTA’s) inception of providing an organized, group tennis experience to kids.
The racquets, balls, nets and even the courts have been more appropriately sized to the kids height, strength and speed abilities. Teaching is more focused on activities that promote success through the kids having fun with each other as well as “rallying” the ball back and forth while virtually, eliminating the net as an obstacle.
