QuickStart Tennis is a New Favorite Sport in Denver
Deuces, Droppers, Lobbers, Aces, and Smashers — these aren’t just tennis terms at Drop Shots, a unique tennis facility created specifically for children 10 and under. They’re used to define the age groups on a colorful schedule found hanging on refrigerators in many homes in Centennial, Colo. Children 2 years old are called Deuces, 3- and 4-year-olds are Droppers, 5- and 6-year-olds are Lobbers, and so on.
Matt Nelsen, a 25-year-old who was just named Entrepreneur of the Year in Centennial, opened Drop Shots last February in a popular shopping center. The two-court indoor center is a place for children to learn tennis, race through obstacles, play games that improve hand-eye coordination, have birthday parties, participate in QuickStart Tennis tournaments, and make friends.
