Mini Tennis Red is for players aged under 8 years and is played on small courts with short racquets and a soft red ball, which is 75% slower than a yellow ball. This phase teaches young children the ABCs (Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed). They learn to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities with the aim of improving their balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racquet & ball skills. As children get older and progress, they learn to serve, rally and score. They are also encouraged to play fun competitions with short matches using tie-break scoring.
