Beginners to Tournament Players
Our programme starts for children as young as 4 years old. We can progress your child from pre-Mini Tennis right through to junior performance via our programme. Mini Tennis is a fun progressive coaching and playing structure designed to maximize a child’s potential. We believe competition is healthy, so we provide regular, fun, competitive opportunities in our programme. Our maximum player to coach ratio is 8:1 – often 4:1.
A little more about Mini Tennis
Mini Tennis is a great introduction to the sport for young children between 4 and 10 years old. It’s just like the real thing, but with smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower-bouncing balls.
There are three levels of Mini Tennis; Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach, based on age and physical maturity enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.
The low compression balls used in Mini Tennis are also used by clubs and coaches to introduce adult beginners to the sport. The slower and lower bouncing balls make it far easier to learn the game.
Mini Tennis Red
Red ball Mini Tennis is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on smaller courts with shorter rackets and softer balls. It’s just like the real thing and gives the chance to have long rallies and play different types of shot. If you want to know more – Call Chris
Mini Tennis Orange
Orange ball Mini Tennis is for players aged 8 and 9. It is played on slightly larger courts than red ball, with bigger rackets and balls that are not as soft as red balls. It’s the next stage to go through before playing on a full sized court and it will help players develop all the different shots. If you want to know more – just call Chris
Mini Tennis Green
Green ball Mini Tennis is for players age 10. It is played on a full tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls that are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage to go through before playing with a full compression yellow ball on a full sized court and it will help players work on and improve all aspects of their game.
