Mini Tennis is a great introduction to the sport for young children between 4 and 10 years old. It's just like the real thing, but with smaller courts, nets, rackets and lower-bouncing balls.
The low compression balls used in Mini Tennis are now being used by clubs and coaches across the UK to introduce adult beginners to the sport. The slower and lower bouncing balls make it far easier to learn the game.
There are three levels of Mini Tennis; Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach, based on age and physical maturity enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.
Mini Tennis Red
Is split into two age groups;
Group 1 - 4 to 6 years old
Group 2 - 7 to 8 years old
It is played on scaled down courts with large soft tennis balls. Smaller rackets more suited to your child are provided. Players will learn basic techniques tactics and, when appropriate, will learn how to keep score in a match. There are session at Glasgow Club Gorbals
Mini Tennis Orange
These sessions are for players aged 8 and 9 years old and are played on a 3/4 sized court with mini tennis orange balls. Again rackets to suit your child are provided. The children will further develop their techniques and tactical awareness. Again these sessions are delivered at Glasgow Club Gorbals
Mini Tennis Green
Are sessions for players aged 10 years old and are played on full sized courts with slightly softer green tennis balls. This will continue their development along the Glasgow Sport Tennis pathway and develop a real appreciation of the game. Glasgow Club Gorbals
