Bollettieri Promotes Short-court Masters Tennis in Florida

At clubs and facilities across Florida, Masters Tennis is bringing players back to the court that had left the game due to age or injuries, or other issues that no longer allowed them to comfortably play full-court tennis.

Legendary coach Nick Bollettieri is a supporter of Masters Tennis, played on the shorter 60-foot court within a full-size 78-foot court for a wide array of players -- veterans looking to get back in the game after injuries, players who can no longer cover a full court, or adults newer to the game looking for a fun challenge.

The 60-foot court with the lower-bouncing "orange ball" also provides the perfect learning laboratory for players or teaching pros working with new players. Players can use their regular racquets, or smaller racquets which provide more control.
