Kid's classes

Mini-tennis coaching classes cater for 5 - 10 years, progressing by age through a 'traffic light system', starting with red, progressing through orange and finally reaching green standard. Adapted balls, smaller courts and rackets allow younger players to improve coordination and skills important to the game whilst having fun and keeping fit!

Mini-tennis Red (aged 5 - 7): the perfect fun introduction to tennis and an ideal starter game. Players play on badminton size courts and work on coordination and movement skills, rallying, serving, court work, score keeping and basic tennis rules.

Mini-tennis Orange (aged 8 - 9): a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. The game is played with shorter rackets, specialised hybrid balls and bigger and wider courts than "red". Players work on match-play skills and develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

Mini-tennis Green (aged 9 – 10): the final stage of Mini-tennis. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are 25% softer than adult yellow balls. This stage helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game, and prepares players to move onto junior level, either at club level or continued through sports development.
