Abbeydale Tennis Groups
The Professional Tennis Coaching Team for Kids and Schools in Sheffield.
Our junior group programme is available for all ages and all abilities and takes place on our indoor courts all year round.
Ages 2 to 4
Primarily the focus is to help develop coordination and movement whilst introducing the child to tennis from an early age. Eventually with a racket & ball, mainly concentrating on fun and games linked with the sport. Coaches encourage parents to join in if they want to.
Ages 5 to 8
Mini Red is played on a smaller court, roughly Badminton size using larger soft tennis balls which means they are slower. The net is lower and the rackets are smaller, these factors help the child to develop better technique and simple tactics. Coaches may encourage the children to start competing in matches.
Ages 9 to 10
Mini Orange is played on a court 3/4 of the size of a normal tennis court, the balls are 50% slower than actual tennis balls, the net is lower and the court is narrower which helps children continue to develop both technique and tactically. Matches at Mini Orange level are slightly longer which include singles and doubles in team formats.
Mini Green is played on a full-size court but with slightly slower balls. As the children are becoming physically stronger they are able to cover the full court. Emphasis on continued technique and tactical development, using more power and spin as well as detailed athletic skills. Competition is both individual and team based.
Full Ball is played on a full size court and introduces players to normal pressurised tennis balls which are faster and bounce higher. Full ball prepares children for adult tennis.
