As a Mini Tennis Accredited Club, we run our sessions along the LTA guidelines. The Mini Tennis Programme helps the young or inexperienced junior players learn the skills and tactics of the game through achievable targets, regardless of their age or ability.
They will be able to play tennis, having all the features of the real game, but with a racket they can hold, a ball that bounces less high and on a playing area that they can cover. The court size and ball speed increases as junior players progress through the different stages.
Players will progressively achieve racket control and learn how to rally, serve, volley at the net, keeping score and compete.
All the elements of mini tennis are designed to give the growing tennis player a quality experience and desire to play tennis for life.
Our MINI RED Programme helps all young junior players to achieve the fundamentals of tennis, including coordination, balance, agility, receptive skills and all in a fun environment. They use low compressions red ball, lower nets, and smaller rackets. As they improve on these skills, they will be able to progress to the next stage.
Our MINI ORANGE Programme is played on a 3/4 length court with low compression balls. In these sessions the junior players will continue to improve their physical skills, while starting to develop their tactical and technical aspects.
Our MINI GREEN Programme is for junior players who wish to further advance their tennis skills to play on a full size court with mid-compression balls, which will start to prepare them for the full game.
