Veteran players looking to get back in the game after injuries and adults new to the game looking for a fun new challenge can now experience tennis on a whole new level.
 
The new Masters Tennis option is the perfect format for communities or facilities looking to introduce the game of tennis to adults, or bringing former players back to the game, regardless of ability. Played on a 60-foot court (lined within a regulation 78-foot court) with the lower-bouncing "orange ball" in singles or doubles, Masters Tennis is a great way for players to stay active and in the game. Players that have stopped playing tennis due to injuries will find the format more forgiving and accessible.
 
"Masters Tennis is easy to learn, fun to play, social, and keeps players active," says USTA Florida Masters Tennis organizer Carla Williams. "For players, the Masters Tennis website offers the ability to find tennis facilities throughout Florida offering the program. For facilities and clubs, the website offers everything to instantly start a Masters Tennis program, including information on grants for facilities or organizations that need racquets, orange balls, or permanent blended lines on courts."
 
A target market of 14 facilities/clubs in Florida have debuted or are debuting Masters Tennis in June 2013, with program start-up and support now available to all Florida clubs and facilities.
 
"Clubs and players in Florida with our older demographic have been asking us for a program like this for years," says USTA Florida Executive Director Doug Booth. "Anyone can play with the smaller racquets, slower balls and smaller courts. Players who left the game due to age or injuries can again play with this format, truly making tennis the 'Sport of a Lifetime.'"
 
The Masters Tennis website also offers how-to advice and instruction, in addition to videos, information on equipment and line grants from USTA Florida, program marketing resources, an interactive location map and more. Facilities that utilize 10 and Under Tennis programming will find themselves instantly ready to go to bring players back to the game with Masters Tennis.
