Mini Tennis Red - 14 September - 19 October

Mini Tennis Red 

Mini Tennis Red is perfect for beginners. Children will play on small courts with short racquets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game! They’ll be introduced to the basics of tennis and get the opportunity to practice long rallies, play different types of shots and get competing.

For more information about the national Mini Tennis scheme visit the Lawn Tennis Association's (LTA) website.
