Mini Academy

Your child will come into this stage from 8 years old and continue until 10 or 11 years old. For some children, tennis has now likely become one of their “number one things”, for others they are still participating in other sports & activities but still enjoy tennis. Our programme will continue to progress through our syllabus which is merit based as children master certain tennis specific-skills through orange ball and then green ball. Children will move along this path at their own pace. Click here to red more about our syllabus and the pathway through our programmes.
