Quickstart Tennis is the new exciting tennis format for kids introduced by the USTA, and has been instrumental in introducing kids to tennis in the U.S. and various European nations. European teaching pros and clubs have been using the format for years to produce champions such as Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters, who played the QuickStart-type format as children. The program is currently being implemented in tennis clubs and elementary and middle schools throughout the U.S.
