What is Mini tennis?
Children between 4 and 10 years old can now get stuck into the world of tennis with an exciting programme from the LTA sponsored by Highland Spring.
With smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls LTA Mini Tennis, offers the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.
There are four stages of LTA Mini Tennis; Little hitters (4-5 year-olds), Red (under 8's), Orange (8-9 year-olds) and Green (10 year-olds), each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age. For details on each of the mini tennis categories visit the LTA website.
There is also the LTA Mini Tennis Rally Awards scheme, designed to help mini players learn in stages and take part in exciting exercises with regular rewards which encourage them to develop their tennis skills at a pace that suits them.
Here at Primal Health, we have incorporated the Rally Awards within our courses. At the end of each course every child will receive a certificate of the stage they achieved. There will also be the opportunity to buy a Primal Health T-Shirt and an iron-on badge to show your friends and family how well you have done!
Come and play with Primal Health and...
...get set for the mini game with the big attitude!
