About POP Tennis:
POP Tennis is a 100+-year-old sport that is played on a smaller court with a low compression ball and a shorter racquet with no strings. Very similar to tennis, POP Tennis is fun, social, and quick to learn, and the underhand serve makes the sport more accessible to more people. In 2016, POP Tennis was adapted by the United States Tennis Association and now uses both 60’ and 50’ courts to provide more options for play. POP Tennis is in growth mode and looking for facilities, instructors and ambassadors interested in hosting POP Tennis programs and tournaments in their respective areas.
