Canada Water Tennis Club, new Tots classes at The Lodge Space

Tots is for children aged 3 to 5 years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

Tots play with sponge balls and 17 or 19 inch rackets and the focus is about making it as much fun as possible.

Mini Tennis Red (5 -8 years old)

Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

Players are encouraged to play fun competitions in teams and as individuals, with short matches using tie-break scoring.

Mini Tennis Orange (8-9 years old)

Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red and is for players aged 8 and 9. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

It is the next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different shots and tactics.

Mini Tennis Green (10+ years old)

Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
