Learn the basics and love the game!

This phase, for the really little ones, is a fun and easy way to start tennis. We use balloons, bean bags, hoops, soft balls – all kinds of fun stuff, but your child will also hit their first tennis balls. In fact, we guarantee that your child will be hitting balls over the net in their very first session!

Serve, rally and score!

This phase, for children aged approximately 5-8 years old, consists of learning how to serve, rally and score as well as including lots of movement, co-ordination, speed, balance and agility games – but of course having fun a the same time!

Mini tennis red takes place on a much smaller tennis court, using mini tennis nets and a bigger and slower ball.

Players are encouraged to play fun competitions in teams or individually, with short matches using tie-break scoring.

Red ball sessions are split into Red Starter, Improver, Advanced and Team. To get an idea what these levels mean and the kinds of things children learn at each level, click here.
