Tennis 10 is a method based on the principle of "Game Based Approach", used mainly for children between the age of 7-10 (sometimes in the case of adults also) and using game materials adapted to the players' age (lower nets, sponge balls, smaller wooden or plastic rackets), thus making it easier for the players to learn the game. The method is effective for the quick learning of tennis because the use of materials adapted to the players' size allows more time to react, giving the players self-confidence and increasing their motivation to play and progress. The purpose of this study is to analyze the influence of the Tennis 10 method on the development of general motor skills in children, considering that the general physical training helps develop the body harmoniously, being also a premise and a condition for getting remarkable results in tennis.
