Tiny Tennis (3-5 years)
Tiny Tennis is for those little nippers who require some fundamental skills with tennis wrapped into it. Lots of different ball skills, balancing and co-ordination games and an introduction to using the racket and a net.
Mini Red (5-8 years)
Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.
Mini Orange (8 & 9 Years)
Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.
Green Ball Tennis (10-11 years)
Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
Full Ball Tennis (11+)
Full ball tennis is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Green. It is played on a full size court with full compression yellow balls and is the final stage of junior tennis helping players progress through to adult tennis.
