Mini Tennis Orange is for players aged 8-10 years and is a great way to continue progress from Mini Tennis Red. It is played with an orange ball, which is 50% slower than a yellow ball, giving children better control at this stage of development. Courts are bigger and wider than the red stage, but are still smaller than full-size tennis courts. This allows players to learn different shots and tactics and to develop a rounded game. At this stage, there are team and individual competitions with matches using tie-break scoring.
