York Tennis Club Mini Tennis

Mini Tennis (Ages 3 – 10)

York Tennis Academy adopt a full programme of mini tennis, for children aged 3 upwards. Mini Tennis is the national standard adopted by the LTA to aid children’s development on smaller courts with slower balls and smaller rackets. The court size and ball speed increase as players get older and mini tennis works on a traffic lights system, Mini Tennis Red (children up to 8 years old), Mini Tennis Orange (children 8-9 years old), Mini Tennis Green (children 9-10 years old).

Future Champs Tots Tennis (3 - 6 years)

‘Future Champs Tots Tennis’ provides a great introduction into tennis for children. Tots tennis works on the ABC’s (Agility, Balance and Co-ordination). As well as the ABC’s it is our aim to put tennis at the forefront of the learning even for the youngest children in our programme and not simply have children rolling balls to each other and undertaking other similar generic activities. Given the right tuition children can achieve more than many think possible from a young age including rallying, serving, use of spin / different grips, movement, recovery and point play. This provides a great stepping stone for children into Mini Tennis Red.
