For players aged 7 and under.   Played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives children opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

Mini Tennis Orange
For players aged 8 and 9.  A great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 8 and 9.  It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

The next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps children develop different shots and tactics.

Mini Tennis Green
For players aged 10 – 12.  It is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange.   Played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps children develop and improve all aspects of their game.

Yellow Ball
