BOERUM HILL - While some of the biggest names in tennis compete in the U.S. Open in New York, some younger competitors in Brooklyn are just learning the ropes.

Children are developing their skills at Court 16 in Boerum Hill, the only tennis club just for children ages 2-11 in the country.

The young athletes there play on child-size courts learning the basics of the sport, including forehands, backhands, volleys and serves.
