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 old)

‘Future Champs’ Tots Tennis provides a great introduction into tennis for children. Tots tennis utilises the ABC’s (Agility, Balance and Co-ordination) and provides great all round learning for the youngest of children. As well as utilizing the ABC’s, Tots Tennis is also a great opportunity for children to really get a head start in the game of tennis and children are quickly progressed whilst using ABC’s to be able to apply these skills in tennis.  Given the right tuition children can achieve more than many think possible including rallying, serving, use of spin / changing grips, movement and recovery and point play. This provides a great stepping stone for children into Mini Tennis Red.
