BLUE YOUTH
4-6yrs

This is an introduction to tennis helping children improve balance, agility and coordination. It's not about winning and losing - just getting to grips with the basics.


 

RED YOUTH
6-8yrs

 This will look a bit more like the tenis you know. You'll see overarm serves, rallies and volleys. Coaches will help children to further develop coordination, balance and speed using soft balls and small courts.

 

ORANGE YOUTH 8-9yrs

Here we'll see the children starting to learn some tactics, problem solving for themsleves, developing sportsmanship and leadership. At this stage the children will understand the rules and be serving and returning in matches.

GREEN YOUTH
 9-10yrs

This is the big one, time for children to play on full size courts. It's now all about fine tuning and refining the technique they have learnt so far. Although children will be receiving expect tuition children will be in a position to act more independently on the court. 

YELLOW YOUTH
11yrs+ 

Time to find your game and explore different styles of playing. It's by this point having completed the various stages that we hope children will be fans of tennis for life!
