THE GREEN COACHING CLASS ALSO INCLUDES A FREE 45 MINUTE COACH SUPERVISED PLAY SESSION ON A FRIDAY AT 5.30pm.
We would encourage all children who attend coaching to attend this informal tennis session as the more court time they have with their peers the more fun they will have, the faster they will develop and the greater enjoyment they will get from the game.
The next Andy Murray could be out there and we have developed programs to enhance young childrens enjoyment of our great game. The focus of both our junior coaching and game play is fun and enjoyment for the children as they progress through the different development stages of Mini, Red, Orange, Green and ultimately onto Yellow ball tennis.
Mini Tennis Green
Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange.
It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
There is also the chance to Earn Your Stripes through the Mini Tennis Green Rally Awards.
