Have a read of our brochure here.

All of the Juniors in our Tennis Coaching Programme have fun on court, get fit and are pushed into learning new skills in every lesson. We run sessions from 4 to 18 years old and the players follow a curriculum that teaches the technical, tactical, mental and physical sides of the sport. Mini Tennis Red is 4-7, Orange is 8-10, Green is 10-11 and Yellow is 12-18, the court size, type of ball and conditions change but the aim is always to get fit, have fun and learn new skills. Did you know that young Tennis players are academically more advanced?

THE SPIRE HEALTHCARE SERIES: Each of our juniors are put into a team when they sign up so they're playing for themselves and for their team, like house points in school. We run LTA Grade 6 Competitions free of charge so our juniors can start on the road to improving their rating. On top of The Spire Healthcare Series we have club events like the Summer Open and several one day tournaments.

If you would like to arrange a free trial please drop us a line. All players have to join Redhill Lawn Tennis Club which is a small yearly payment.

Mini Tennis Coaching Explained

Junior Tennis players aged between 4 and 10 years old can now get on a court and start playing straight away thanks to Red, Orange and Green Mini Tennis. The development of a Tennis player comes from learning skills such as how to control the ball technically and understanding the tactical outcome of their shots.

Mini tennis is split into four stages:

  • 4-8 year olds play  RED ball 
  • 8-10 play  ORANGE ball 
  • 10-11 play with a  GREEN ball 
  • 12+ play with a standard  YELLOW ball 
Mini Tennis Red

Red ball players aged between 4-8 years old. Players get used to rallying, scoring & the movement required on a Tennis court. The court is about the size of a service box on a full sized court. Mini Tennis Red improves players skill level, coordination, movement & reading of the ball.

Mini Tennis Orange

Orange ball players are aged between 8-10 years old. Players will start to develop their technique more at this age with more technical advice and full matches. An Orange court is over double the size of a mini Red court so it's a big step up physically as well as technically.

Mini Tennis Green

Green ball players are aged between 10-11 years old. A Green ball Tennnis Court is a full sized Tennis court and at this stage of learning players are looking at tactical scenarios such as Doubles, court position and making the right decision on when to attack.
