Mini Tennis (3-10 yrs)


Mini Tennis provides the perfect introduction to the sport for children aged between 3 and 10 years old. Our Mini Tennis programme allows the sport to be accessible to young children. The smaller courts and equipment, combined with the lower-bouncing balls help to produce a platform for young people to get to grips with game and develop a love for the sport. Mini tennis coaching at the Club is divided into 5 stages: 



Tots tennis is ideal for Pre-schoolers (3-4 years old). These sessions enable tots to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement, racket and ball skills.


The Mini Tennis Red Futures squads are ideal for children aged 4-6 years old. These squads are all about building self-confidence within a fun environment, whilst developing the fundamental sporting skills such as movement, balance and coordination. We focus a lot on the players sending and receiving skills, as well developing the racket head control to be able to rally successfully.




The Min Tennis Red Aces squads are ideal for children aged 6-8 years old. These squads will continue to improve the kids physical and coordination skills needed for tennis, whilst developing the techniques and tactics to be able to serve, rally and score successfully. Players are encouraged to play fun competition in teams and as individuals, with short matches using tie-break scoring.



The Mini Tennis Orange squads are ideal for children aged 8-9 years old. These are a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. Players develop a rounded game learning a range of techniques and tactics. The courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts. An Orange ball is 50% slower than a yellow ball, giving players better control at this important stage of development. There are team and individual competitions with matches using tie-break scoring.



The Mini tennis Green squads are ideal for children ages 9-11 years old who are ready to test their skills on a full-size court. The green balls are 25% slower than a yellow ball so make it a little easier to get to grips with the bigger court. There are team and individual competition with matches now moving to the game and set scoring. Our approach to helping children into the sport makes if far easier for them to develop their skills and progress with their tennis.
