Which class is right for my child?

Tiny-Tots: Ages 3-4

The first foray into Tennis. Physical skills and game based learning. ordination activities to help your child develop the basic movements of the game of tennis. Simple swings and fun all around.

Mini-Tots: Ages 3-5

The perfect intro to Tennis for your child. All the skills required to progress to the next level. Basic techniques, skills and welcome to the tennis court.

Mini-Reds: Ages 6-8

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-Orange: Ages 8-9.5

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.

Mini Green: Ages 9-10.5

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.

U12: Ages 10-12

The first step away from mini-tennis & on to a full sized court with full sized balls. Develop physically, tactically & mentally, as well as building on technique.

U14: Ages 12-14

Squad style approach, featuring rallies, drills skills and match/game-play. Develop physically, tactically & mentally, as well as building on technique.

Junior Squad: Ages 10-16

High level technical work, with a focus on how to win. Tactical and metal work becomes more important as we aim towards the complete Tennis players.
