DEVELOPMENT TENNIS

Course Descriptions

Mini Red Tennis

Red ball mini tennis is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on smaller courts, smaller rackets and sponge balls. It's just like the real game and gives children the opportunity to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

What ball is used?
A red sponge ball is used indoors and a red felt ball is used outdoors.

What size court is red ball played on?
A court with dimensions of 11m x 5.5m.

Mini Orange Tennis

Mini Orange tennis is for players aged between 8 and 9yrs. It is played on larger courts than red ball, with bigger rackets and orange felt balls with low compression. It's the next stage to go through before you start playing on a full sized court and helps Children develop all the different shots, providing fun competition.

What ball is used?
An orange ball is used. It has a low compression that makes it bounce lower, giving the player better control at an important stage of their development.

Orange ball is played on a singles court of 18m x 6.5m and a doubles court of 18m x 8.23m (the full width of the singles court).

Mini Green Tennis

Green ball is played on a full tennis court for children aged 10 and under, with 26 inch to full size rackets. The balls are a little lower compression than the full yellow ball and is the final stage to go through before your child starts playing with a full yellow ball on a full sized court.  This stage helps children work on and improve all aspects of their game before moving to yellow ball.

A green ball is used, which is ideal for players moving from orange ball to actual tennis balls.
