Mini Tennis is a fun and exciting way for young children to get into the world of tennis. 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 Juniors’ are normally 6 to 10 years old and in school years 3-6. Unless stated otherwise, all courses are suitable for players of both sexes who may have played a little to those who have been playing a while.
