LTA Mini Tennis (3 to 10 yrs) - Weekly Programme
Children between three and ten years old can now get stuck into the world of tennis with an exciting programme from the LTA, delivered throughout our Tennis Schools.
With smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, Mini Tennis offers the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.
There are four stages of Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.
We also deliver the Mini Tennis Rally Awards scheme, designed to help mini players learn in stages and take part in exciting exercises with regular rewards which encourage them to develop their tennis skills at a pace that suits them.
Many sports have a mini version including, football, rugby and cricket which are helping to develop young talent in appropriate learning environments.
