Get set for the mini game with the big attitude

Highland Spring Mini Tennis

Children between 3 and 10-years-old can get stuck into the world of tennis with an exciting programme from the LTA sponsored by Highland Spring.

With smaller courts, nets, rackets and lower bouncing balls, Highland Spring Mini Tennis offers the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.

There are four stages of Highland Spring Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.

Mini Tennis Tots

Mini Tennis Tots is for children aged 3 to 5-years-old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

Mini Tennis Red

Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. Players learn to serve, rally and score with a slow ball, as well as learning the movement and co-ordination skills needed for tennis. Players are encouraged to play fun competitions in teams and as individuals, with short matches using tie-break scoring.

Mini Tennis Orange

Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 8 and 9. Players develop a rounded game learning a range of techniques and tactics. Courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts. There are team and individual competitions with matches using tie-break scoring

Mini Tennis Green

Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange and is for children aged 9 and 10. Players can now put their technique and skills into practice on a full size court with a faster ball which will help them develop all aspects of their game. There are individual and team competitions, with scoring extended to short sets.
