BREAKDOWN OF MINI GROUPS

Mini tennis is broken down into four levels and age groups. Age groups are flexible dependent on previous experience. These levels are colour coded and represent the colour of the ball used in the session. Balls vary in pressure so that they bounce less for younger age groups. The size of the court is also adjusted. Below is more detail:

Red 8 & under
Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and 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.
Orange 8 & 9
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. 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.
It is the next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different shots and tactics.
Green 10+
Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is 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 players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
Juniors 11+
Junior tennis is played on a full court using yellow balls. These groups focus on developing technique along with the tactical side of tennis.
