An excellent introduction to tennis for young children. Played on smaller courts with short racquets (17”-21)” and bigger tennis balls that bounce 75% slower than normal tennis balls. Played just like a real game, players will learn to hold a racquet, the correct technique for the different strokes and the chance to have long rallies and play different shots.
The perfect way for players to continue their development from Mini Red Tennis. Playing with slightly longer racquets (23”-25”), balls are 50% slower than standard tennis balls, and on a bigger and wider court than mini red, but smaller than full size allowing players to develop a more rounded game.
Mini Green Tennis is perfect for continuing player’s development from Mini Orange Tennis coaching. Played on a full-size court with balls that are 25% slower than full-size balls and 26” racquets to help develop the players’ all-round game. Focusing more on how to play points, structured tennis rallies and on technique when required. Mini Green Tennis continues with competition and point play and is the natural transition to yellow ball tennis.
Our programme for this age allows the players to work physically and mentally at their tennis game; we encourage players to compete regularly to improve their LTA rating and ranking. Sessions are more game based which allow the players to develop their own individual game through drills and matchplay situations. The final transition is too full court yellow ball tennis with 27” racquets, just like Andy Murray and Johanna Konta!!
