Serve takes time and correct effort to build. 2-3 years is what it takes typically when we start building it from 9-10 years of age. One point to note is that time lost can’t come back and older the child becomes more challenging it gets to make them learn the correct serve which will have a full potential one day.
Therefore, starting early is better. How early? One benchmark could be the U-12 final year. By this time your child should aim to have a tactically and technically good serve. The only part missing could be the strength which will come later. However, if for some reason your child has not developed a reasonably good serve by U-12 final year, it’s time to get to some serious work done and get that sorted out. More you wait, more it is going to hurt later on.
