Mini and junior tennis

LTA Youth Blue: 4 to 5 years

This course introduces children to the basics of the game through a series of fun activities to develop balance, coordination, agility, movement, and racket skills.

LTA Youth Red: 6 to 8 years

This course is taught on smaller courts with short rackets and soft balls. It's just like the real game and gives players the opportunity to have rallies and practise different types of shot.

LTA Youth Orange/Green: 9 to 11 years

This course is played on longer, wider courts, and is a great way to continue the progress from mini red. Players can expect to develop a well-rounded game and improve racket and ball skills, technique, and tactics.

LTA Youth Yellow: 12 to 16 years

Player development continues from mini tennis to our junior programme; exploring the full game and controlling space, shots, and time with the faster yellow ball and full-sized racket.
