Red Ball (5 – 7 Years)

Red Ball tennis is for children aged 5-7 years old. The duration of a class is 45 minutes and during a class there will be on average one coach to four kids on court for the term.

What do we focus on?

  • Learning to rally, development of dynamic skills specifically for tennis technique, footwork patterns and the basics of each tennis stroke
  • The physical components – ABC’s; agility, balance and coordination. When these skills are mastered tennis is a whole lot easier to learn!
  • A fun range of games lead by professional and enthusiastic coaches
  • Basic scorekeeping – first to 10 points and point play is taught at this stage so kids can understand tennis quickly and independently
  • Two Red Ball Tournaments per term run on Sundays (dates to be communicated each term)

Orange Ball (8 -9 Years)

The Orange Ball level is for children aged 8-9 years. Class times range from 45minutes to 60 minutes and during a class there is one coach for up to a maximum of six kids on court. We use a ¾ size court, 23-25” rackets, and orange coloured balls. Orange coloured balls have half the air pressure to a normal ball so they bounce more realistically for kids of this age which allows them to rally and construct points more effectively.

What do we focus on?

  • Beginner, intermediate and advanced Orange classes are available to suit each child’s particular stage of development
  • A combination of fun games, drills and point play gives our orange classes a balance of focused-fun
  • Point Scoring: depending on their level group they will learn how to play either a pro-set style match or a Fast-Four set
  • The importance of tennis etiquette and rules
  • Two Orange Tournaments per term run on Sundays (dates to be communicated each term).
