Kids are exploring and being introduced to the basics of the game. They will start to develop the core skills of movement and coordination, all while taking part in lots of fun activities, short matches and team competitions.
Kids will play in the service boxes using a red tennis ball which is slightly larger than a tennis ball with a gentle low bounce. As a guideline players are aged 4-8 years.
The emphasis in the second stage is on further development. They will start learning new shots and techniques to help them rally on a bigger court. Competition and match play will be slightly longer.
Kids will use an orange ball which is the same size as a normal tennis ball but softer and lighter. The court size is 18m in length with the orange baseline halfway between the service line and full court baseline. Generally the kids are 7-8 years or above at this stage depending on size and strength.
This is the final stage in preparing the kids for full tennis, at this stage children will be bigger and able to cover the whole court. They will continue to improve their technique and tactics player longer matches in an individual and team environment.
The kids are generally 8-9 years or above taking into account their ability. They will use a green ball which is slightly softer and lighter than a normal tennis ball.
