Teddy Tennis – For children aged 2.5 – 5 years.
We offer a specialised introduction to the ABC’s of tennis, Teddy Tennis. Teddy Tennis is a super fun introduction to the game, played on smaller courts and with unique teaching tools and techniques to help younger children learn and improve their coordination skills, balance and agility – the very fundamentals of tennis. Children enjoy learning their racket skills and games to music instructed by specially trained coaches. For more information please download information here.
Mini red tennis is for children under the age of 8 years old. It is played on our four smaller ‘mini tennis courts’ with smaller rackets and oversized red balls to help develop the skills and tools of tennis. It feels just like playing real tennis and incorporates the development of coordination, agility and hand skills towards understanding the basics of tennis tactics, footwork and technique.
Mini Orange Tennis – For children aged 8 and 9
Mini orange tennis is for children aged 8 and 9 years old. Similar to the mini red development stages, orange ballers play on reduced sized courts (but bigger than mini red) and with appropriately sized tennis rackets and mini orange balls. Children are assessed and encouraged at their own individual learning and development stages in order they progress at a pace suitable to them.
Mini Green Tennis – For children aged 9 to 11
Mini green tennis is for children aged 9 to 11 years old. It is played on full size tennis courts but with a softer than normal ‘mini green’ tennis ball allowing for the continuing development of the child.
Junior Tennis – For children aged 12 upwards
From the age of 12 upwards children play on full size courts with yellow tennis balls. We have a very flexible approach to our coaching styles and approach to ensure that children of every level and stage of development enjoy their tennis classes.
For children who progress through the mini tennis stages or who join us from elsewhere and show a more advanced level of interest or ability we offer several performance level coaching groups each week. These are designed to help focus on the progression of children who are keen to play matches, become competitive or who just like playing a good level. Aceplay tennis are proud to have developed juniors to both national and international level and have an excellent group of players currently training with us.
