JUNIOR TENNIS LESSONS







U8 Red Ball Programs
Red ball classes are for children ages 7 and below.  The children will play on a smaller court (doubles line to doubles line) with shorter racquets and softer balls.  This program will focus on teaching the players to cooperate in pairs and small groups which will help set the foundation for developing the rally skills necessary to excel in tennis at a later age. Children will also learn basic technical skills such as groundstrokes, volleys and serves.

The Green Ball Class is the final stage of the Progressive Tennis Program and is for children between the ages of 8 - 10.  Children play on the full sized tennis court but use modified balls that have 85 – 90% the compression of regular tennis balls.  This means that the balls are a little less lively than regular tennis balls.   The focus of this program is to solidify the technique and tactics developed in the Red and Orange Ball Programs and prepare the children to transition to full court tennis.
