TOURNAMENTS

JUNIOR COMPETITION

We run regular junior tournaments at all our clubs giving our junior players a chance to put into practice what they learn in their lessons. It also gives the coaches a look at what needs to be worked on in upcoming lessons, during a real-game situation.

We really believe these tournaments provide a fun learning experience for the kids. From understanding how to score and where to stand in the red ball event, to how to tactically overcome their opponent in the yellow ball events, it gets them used to playing points competitively.

We run events for the following mini and junior groups:

Red Court

RED BALL EVENT (UP TO 8 YRS)

Red ball is a great way for players to start out in tennis and is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on smaller courts with shorter rackets and softer balls.

It's just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

Played on courts with dimensions of 11m x 5.5m and the net is lower than yellow ball tennis at a height of 80cm.

Orange Court

ORANGE BALL EVENT (8-9 YRS)

Orange ball is a great way for players to continue their progress from red ball and is for players aged 8 and 9. It is played on slightly larger courts than red ball, with bigger rackets and balls that are not as soft as red balls.

It's the next stage to go through before you start playing on a full sized court and it will help players develop all the different shots, providing fun competition.

Green Court

GREEN BALL EVENT (9-10 YRS)

Green ball is a great way for players to continue their progress from orange ball mini tennis. It is played on a full tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls that are a little softer than yellow balls.

It's the next stage to go through before you start playing with a full compression yellow ball on a full sized court and it will help players work on and improve all aspects of their game.

Yellow Court

YELLOW BALL (TIER 2, 11 YRS+)  |  YELLOW BALL (TIER 1* 11 YRS+)

*Tier 1 is for the more advanced yellow ball players.

Yellow ball competition is for players aged 11 and over. It is played on a full tennis court, with full size rackets and full compression yellow balls.
