Abilities: All levels and abilities

Skills Gained: Learn how to play tennis, the rules of the games as well as general skills such as technique, movement, balance, speed, and coordination.

Programme:

  • Tots Tennis: For children aged 3-5 years and introduced them to the basic skills in tennis such as balance, movement, coordination through fun tennis games and activities.  Each child will use small rackets and sponge tennis balls.
  • Mini Red Ball: It is played on small courts with short rackets and softballs. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.
  • Mini Orange Ball: A great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. 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.
  • Mini Green Ball: 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.
  • Yellow Ball: Played on a full-size tennis court using full-size tennis rackets and full compression yellow tennis balls.
  • ASN: This class is open to children who have additional support needs. Split into different age groups, the class looks to ensure that each child develops their tennis skills through fun and inclusive tennis drills and games.

What to Bring: A drink (water is recommended) as well as sports clothing: shorts, tracksuit, t-shirt, trainers. Rackets and balls are provided.
