THE PERFECT MATCH
With smaller courts, shorter racquets, and lower bouncing balls, youth players will achieve greater physical activity and feel successful at tennis right from the start. Tennis is a game that can be played at home in the driveway with the whole family or with friends on any flat, safe surface.
GET STARTED. RED BALL.
The tennis journey starts with red. Red balls can be made of foam or felt, are larger, bounce lower and travel slower than the standard yellow ball making it easier to learn and acquire skills.
COURT SIZES: 36' X 18'
Red Courts are short and narrow, making it easy for players to focus on learning the fundamentals of the game.
MOVING ON. ORANGE BALL.
Orange balls travel through the air a little faster and farther than the red ball, but are the same size and still bounce lower than a yellow ball.
COURT SIZE: 60' X 21' - OR - 60' X 27' (DOUBLES)
Slightly smaller than the full-size 78' court, Orange Courts are ideal for players who are still developing their athletic, technical, and competitive skills.
COURT SIZES: 78' X 27' - OR - 78' X 36' (DOUBLES)
At this stage, while continuing to improve their tactical and technical skills, a player's size does not hinder their ability to cover a full-size tennis court.
HOW TO PLAY TENNIS
Tennis is played by keeping the ball within the boundaries of the court.
You score a point by hitting a ball that your partner cannot hit or they hit the ball into the net.
Winning points turn into winning games which turn into winning sets!
When your child first starts playing tennis,
scoring is simpler, more creative, and focuses on fun!
