Mini Tennis is a great introduction to the sport for young children between 4 and 8 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 there 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 now being used by clubs and coaches across the world to introduce adult beginners to the sport. The slower and lower bouncing balls make it far easier to learn the game..Training takes place Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4pm to 5pm.
In this level coaches focus on basic skills such as movement, co-ordination (especially hand-eye coordination) and a simple introduction to the game. Kids practice in groups of 4 on a mini court with small nets. Lessons are done in a fun way with lot of games and exercises to keep their concentration throughout the whole lesson.
In this level kids play tennis on a ¾ court with orange balls. The use of orange balls ensures that kids will have longer rallies while keeping their technique on the bigger court since balls are slower and bounce much less than normal balls. In this level kids are exposed to competitions and coaches focus on improving their technique.
Kids play on a full court with green dot balls (25% slower than hard balls). In this level coaches focus a lot on technique as well as on tactical aspects of the game. Kids at green level should be able to keep rally going and play to specific directions. They also get a lot of game situation experience.
