A 10 and Under Tennis Workshop will be held for coaches and instructors of all levels, from after-school to professional development, during the U.S. Fed Cup match against Sweden on Saturday, April 20, 2013, in Delray Beach, Fla.
 
For the $20 workshop fee (only $10 for USTA members), participants will also receive a ticket to Saturday play at the Fed Cup at the Delray Beach Tennis Center. To join USTA and save $10 go to www.usta.com/membership. The workshop will have a 9 a.m. check-in, and run from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the Fed Cup matches starting at 2 p.m.
 
USTA National Trainers Kirk Anderson, Susan Allshouse and Spanish-speaking coach Jose Caballero will provide workshop participants with the tools and age-specific activities that will have kids experiencing the fun of the 10 and Under Tennis format.
 
10 and Under Tennis allows children to emulate adult play on smaller court sizes, with racquet sizes that fit their hands, lower-bouncing low-compression balls, and a simple scoring system, all adjusted to ease kids into the sport and help them quickly find success.
 
"This tennis workshop is a great educational opportunity to learn how to introduce and develop children via the 10 and Under Tennis principals and philosophy," says USTA Florida Associate Executive Director Andy McFarland. "We are encouraging any level of teacher, instructor, coach, teaching professional and anyone that works with younger children to attend this workshop, as we will be customizing it to our audience. It is also an exciting opportunity to partner with USTA national to allow our workshop participants to attend a first-rate workshop led by Kirk Anderson, and then attend the Fed Cup matches afterwards and support the U.S. players."
 
The Delray Beach Tennis Center is located at 201 W. Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Fla., 33444. Workshop space is limited so sign up today. The workshop registration deadline is Friday, April 12.
