Just Brooke Tennis run a number of mini tennis courses at all venues for all ages and abilities. Listed below are the groups that we currently run.
For the younger players, we have mini red, mini orange and mini green classes which are aimed at those children who are age 5 to 11 years of age.
With a variety of fun games we aim to develop your child’s fundamental motor skills alongside their basic tennis skills. We assist the development of their hand / eye co-ordination, balance, agility and other essential skills that children will need through their childhood and even adulthood. We aim to teach them how to hit forehands, backhands, volley and serves.
Mini Orange is played on a ¾-sized court with compressed orange balls and is aimed at ages 11 & under. We aim to provide players with the skills to play both singles and doubles with emphasis on the forehand, backhand, volley and the serve. There will be focus on tactics, spin and match strategy as well as positioning and shot placement as we prepare the children towards the next stage. The orange ball moves at 50% of the speed of a full ball, ensuring time to adjust to shots and position on court.
Mini green takes the children further on their tennis journey honing their skills, working on matchplay and tactics involved in winning points.
Following on from mini tennis, we move to Junior Tennis which is for children aged 11+ who play with the classic yellow ball.
