Juniors aged 4-10

Juniors ages 4 to 10 years play Mini Tennis, which is designed to allow them to develop tennis skills and play longer rallies in a less challenging environment than a full tennis court.  Rackets are shorter and easier for juniors to handle and the balls have a lower compression, meaning they bounce more slowly.  Mini tennis is played on smaller court areas with lower nets.
Tots - ages 4-5 years play with Red Mini tennis balls on a shortened court and lowered net.   Mini Red balls are 75% slower than a full yellow tennis ball.  At these ages, a strong emphasis is placed on developing co-ordination and balance.
Red - ages 5-8 again play with Red Mini tennis balls.  At these ages players are encouraged to be able to plays rallies as well as a continuing emphasis on co-ordination and balance
Orange - ages 8-9 play with Orange Mini tennis balls on a slightly larger court and a full sized, but slightly lowered net.  Orange balls are 50% slower than a full yellow tennis ball, allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics
Green - age 10 play with Green mini tennis balls and bigger rackets on a full sized court with a normal height net.  Mini Green balls are 25% slower than a yellow ball. This is the final stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.

Juniors aged 11-18

Juniors play with yellow balls on a full sized tennis court and are as far as possible grouped with players of similar ability.
