Red level

They learn basics of tennis such as forehand, backhand, volley, serve and footwork. The Coach uses basic teaching tools like cones, vertical and horizontal targets.

 

Players play in a group of 10 kids. Kids have more time to work on speed, agility, flexibility, balance, tactics and technique. Private lessons, house league, and tournaments recommended.

 This age group is beginner and players play on 36’ long and 48’ wide court, use red balls and 19-23 inch rackets. The focus is about making it as much fun as possible during tennis lessons. The game-based approach is used.

 

The most important focus of this stage is to emphasize fun and enjoyment when playing tennis. While participating in other sports to develop fundamental motor skills, the child begins to show a preference for tennis as his/her sport of choice. The child enjoys and acquires basic tennis skills while playing progressive tennis. At the end of this stage, the child’s foundation and skill competencies achieved will be a good indicator in regards to the child’s likelihood of possessing the abilities to progress recreationally or competitively.
