Junior Development Information
Tennis Class Structure

Orange Ball

Orange Ball is recommended for players aged 8-10 years old. It’s played on a 60’x21’ court, roughly the size of a singles tennis court without alleys. This 1-hour class is designed to introduce young players to the fundamentals of tennis.

Green Ball

Green Ball is recommended for players who have progressed beyond the orange ball stage of tennis development and are ready to hit the ball on a full court. The special green ball ensures a smooth transition to this level. This 1.5-hour class is tailored to advancing the skills of young players.

Yellow Ball

Yellow Ball is the final step along our junior pathway. It is played on a full-sized court with regular tennis balls. This is a 2-hour class designed for players who have developed the size and strength to compete on a full court.
