Mini Red (age 4 - 8)
During Mini Red your child will learn all the basic strokes needed to play tennis including forehands, backhands and serve. Children will develop their hand-eye co-ordination by completing lots of movement, throwing and catching drills. Children will start to practice their rallying skills.
Mini Green (age 9-11)
Children adapt to using a higher bouncing, smaller ball over a bigger court. Children spend lots of time rallying over a higher net, and getting used to recovering to a new court position and hitting with bigger swings over a higher net. Lots of work in Mini Orange on judging the flight of the ball and getting our bodies in good positions to hit from. Children practice first to 7 point tie-breaks.
This is our Junior programme. Children play on a full size court with full tennis balls. This is the class where you would start if you are a teenager starting tennis for the first time, or if you have progressed through our Mini Tennis programme. Our junior class for children wanting to gain extra practice in a competitive environment . Singles and doubles tactics are developed to help the children when competing in local leagues / tournaments.
