Mini tennis explained

Mini Tennis helps juniors develop by in effect scaling Tennis down for children. At each stage the game is tailored to fit different age groups with different sized courts and balls. This will allow your child to develop in an environment where they are surrounded by players of a similar ability as well as being able to make new friends who are of similar age.

Mini blue (4-6)

This stage is designed to finesse  fine motor skills such as agility, balance and coordination.  At this stage it is not about the winning or losing but just getting to grips with the basics! These lessons will be full of energy and fun!

red ball (6-8)

Red ball is the first stage of mini tennis. The ball is 25% bigger than a standard ball and has 50% of the pressure so it is easier to hit. The court is small with a mini net. The main goal at this stage is to develop agility, balance and co-ordination, whilst also developing technique, a basic knowledge of tactics and having fun!

Orange ball (8-11)

Orange ball is the second stage of mini tennis. The ball is regular sized but still 50% of the pressure of a normal ball. The court is now bigger at 3/4 of the size of a full court. In these sessions players will focus on technique and movement to help adjust to the bigger court.

Green ball (10-12)

Green ball is the final stage of mini tennis. The ball is regular sized and 75% of the pressure of a normal ball. Green ball is played on a full sized court. These sessions will also focus on technique and movement to help players adjust to the bigger court and bouncier balls.

yELLOW BALL (11-18)

Anyone over  10 will use yellow balls. Played on the full court with regular balls. In yellow ball the demands for each player start to vary more, therefore choosing the right course is important. Our descriptions of the courses will give you an indication of what they have to offer but if you are unsure give us a ring and we will be happy to help!
