Mini & Junior Coaching
Mini Tennis is where it all starts for children aged 5 to Under 11. This is a 3 stage progression of modified tennis equipment and court sizes, which will enable children to develop the necessary technical, tactical, physical and mental skills required in the modern game. Each stage has a colour code: Red, Orange and Green. Starting with Red the children play on a 12m court with a suitable racket in accordance with their size, but usually 19”, and a sponge ball. As the junior progresses the court size, racket length, speed of ball, height of the bounce, and length of the game will increase until they reach the full game. We then offer a variety of squads on the club programme and the performance programme to suit all abilities.
