Mini Tennis Orange | 8 - 9 year olds
Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. They’ll be playing with shorter racquets and softer balls. Courts are bigger and wider than the red stage to help progress with court awareness, but still smaller than full-size tennis courts, allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.
Get your children plugged into the Lawn Tennis Association's (LTA) nationally recognised children’s tennis programme. These tennis courses provide a fun way for them to learn the basics of the game and also pave the way for more advanced tennis tuition.
What ball is used?
A red ball is used which is 50% slower than a normal ball, giving players better control at this important stage of development.
What racquet is best to use?
A racquet of 23” – 25” should be used depending on the size and strength of the player.
All necessary equipment is provided
Players should arrive changed, wearing comfortable sports clothing and non marking trainers or tennis shoes
