Mini Tennis Red is aimed at players aged 8 & 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. What ball is used? A foam or felt ball is used which is 75% slower than a yellow ball. What size court is red ball played on? A court with dimensions of 11m x 5.5m or 12m x 6m. It's fine to use badminton court lines. What height is the net? The net is at a height of 80cm (in the middle). What racket is best to use? A shorter racket of 43cm – 58 cm (17” – 23”) is recommended depending on the size and strength of the player.
