Junior & Elite Coaching Program
Tennis balls have been developed to make it easier for children to learn the game, and thus enhance their enjoyment of tennis. This has been achieved by the manufacture of tennis balls which are designed to play ‘slower’ and which therefore allow greater opportunity for players to rally. There are 4 easy stages for children to progress through: Red, Orange, Green and Yellow.
Please note: The age categories for each Stage is only a guide. Steve and his team will assess your child’s ability to determine the best fit. The consideration is based on a range of factors which include social fun tennis as well as learning and improving the technical, tactical and mental skills the game has to offer.
Ages: 5 - 8
Children use 25 per cent compression red balls that bounce lower, slower and are much easier to hit. They also play on three-meter or six-meter wide courts.
Ages: 8 - 10
Children begin by exploring fundamental and perceptual motor skills and tennis basics, rally and challenge. They use 50 per cent compression orange balls and play on regular courts with reduced length.
Children play on a full-size court using 75 per cent compression green balls. Consolidate technique, strategy and develop physical skills.
Ages: 12 - 18
Elite level for those players competing, or want to compete in tournaments. The program is designed to help develop both technical and tactical games in a fun, social environment.
Our private tennis lessons are absolutely the best way to fine tune your game and reach your full potential. We work on covering all the technical, tactical and mental aspects of the sport to make sure you develop into the player you want to be. At our tennis club, we offer one-on-one coaching that is tailored to suit both your skill level and your goals.
