Junior Coaching

 Mini Tennis

Mini Tennis provides the perfect introduction to the sport for children aged between 4 and 10. At each stage the game is tailored to fit different age groups with different sized courts and balls. This will allow your child to develop in an environment where they are surrounded by play

  • Red: 4-8 years - Serve, rally and score
  • Orange: 8-9 years - Develop a rounded game
  • Green: 10 years - Put your skills to the test

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

This is for 10-year-olds who are ready to test their skills on a full-size court. Our approach to helping children into the sport makes it far easier for them to develop their skills and progress with their tennis.

Yellow Ball
Our yellow ball groups are divided into U12, U14, U16 and U18’s. Within these groups we have beginners and advanced session.

The yellow ball lessons involve more tactical and technical work and more competition, depending on the ability levels.  Further development of the ABCs takes place and with the older, more advanced players, strength and conditioning also becomes an important part of the training programme.  The performance players have a competition programme to follow as well.
