Get set for the mini game with the big attitude!
With smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, Mini Tennis is the perfect introduction to the sport.
There are four stages of LTA Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.
Children between 3 and 10 years old can now get stuck into the fun world of tennis
Tots 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, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.
Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on small courts 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 for players aged 8 and 9. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider, but still smaller than full-size courts allowing players to develop a rounded game and learn techniques and tactics.
Mini Tennis Green is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the last stage before moving on to a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
