Mini Tennis


Every term time Monday at Thames Valley Athletics Centre we offer:

Tots: 3+4 years old (foam ball) 

(Mon 4 – 4:30pm) Tots is for children aged 3 to 5 years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

Reds Squad 5+6 years old (red ball) 

(Mon 4:30-5:10)Slower balls, smaller courts and shorter rackets enable players to play the game from the first lesson. Players have fun team based matches and develop good basic technique and great early coordination skills for any sport. Emphasis on fun with a tennis theme in a group environment.

Orange Squad 7+8 years old (orange ball) (Mon 5:10 – 6:00)The next step up from Mini Squads, players use a slightly ball on a larger court an continue their development of tennis strokes with introduction to scoring and team games, as well as keeping a fun and friendly group environment.

Green Squad 9-10 years old (green ball) 

(Mon 6-7pm) 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.
