With smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls LTA Mini Tennis, offers the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.  The 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.

 

Mini Tennis   Tots
3-5yrs 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
5-8yrs 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
8-9yrs Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red   and is for players aged 8 and 9. It is 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. It is the next stage   before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different   shots and tactics.
Mini Tennis   Green
10yrs Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis   Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and   balls which are a little softer than yellow balls.
