Preschool Tennis is for children aged 3 to 5 years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, coordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills. The class takes place in-doors.
Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on a smaller court area with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.
Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 8 and 9. 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. It is the next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different shots and tactics.
Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players aged 9 and 10 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. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
Under the guidance of coach Ricky Lee, the Club have has developed a number of squads which catering for the needs of all children aged between 11 and 18 regardless of their ability. Each squad builds on the fundamentals required to play the game, and as they develop they will progress through the squad system learning new skills and techniques all the time.
The performance players attend two classes each week to ensure the highest level of coaching possible and provide more competitive opportunities for all attendees.
In all our courses and squads, ages are only used as guidelines as players will progress with ability not age.
