After School Pick Service
Junior Racquet Tennis Canberra

Free Racquet Initiative (FRI)** – For junior players new to Tennis Canberra

We see too many first-time juniors with racquet too big for them. Having the wrong racket can encourage bad habits and slow the development of the young player. The Free Racquet Initiative (FRI) is put in place so your child starts with a racket of the right fit. Your child will try a racquet for size in his/her first lesson and will receive a brand new racquet within 1-2 weeks.

Note: In rare cases, new junior players that require an adult frame will need to pay an additional fee. However, they will receive 40% off a basic Head or Babolat adult frame rather than receiving a free junior racquet. This should help cover the higher cost of the racquet and enable us to continue this initiative for juniors of all ages and abilities.
