BTA MINI TENNIS STRUCTURE

There are four stages of Mini Tennis; Blue (Tots), Red, Orange and Green (Mini Tennis), each with their own court size and type of ball. Our tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.

BTA AWARDS 

Our unique awards scheme allows children and parents to keep track of their own progression, by being awarded stickers, certificates and medals by their coach.  Their awards sheet contains technical, tactical, physical and mental goals to help children develop and improve vital skills needed to make them the complete tennis player.  They will receive a sticker for every achievement and once their awards sheet is full of stickers they will receive a medal for completion of that specific level!

TOTS TENNIS
