Overview of the Youth Tennis Programme and Levels:

Never held a racket? No problem, our specially trained LTA Youth coaches will adapt to each individual, to help bring out their best in a safe, secure environment. All kids need to bring is their creative energy, because the programme is designed to grow as they do. Smaller courts and softer balls develop into the real deal as they pick up all the skills and know-how they need.

It will take your youngster to the next level; you’ll see it in their confidence, their skills and even their concentration at school. Not to mention keeping them fit and active. Add some healthy competition to teach them about good sportsmanship (because we all have bad days) and you’ve got a set of skills for life.

The Youth Tennis Programme is a great introduction to the sport for young children between 5 and 10 years old. It’s just like the real thing, but with smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower-bouncing balls. The low compression balls used in Youth Tennis are slower and lower bouncing making it far easier to learn the game. Yellow ball is using the regular tennis balls and a full size court.

There are five levels of Youth Tennis; Blue, Red, Orange, Green and Yellow each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach, based on age and physical maturity enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.

Blue: 4-5 years
Red: 6-7 years
Orange: 8-9 years
Green : 10-11 years
Yellow: 12+ years
