There are many ways of getting started in tennis.

  • Many schools have start up sessions, usually delivered by local club coaches 
  • Keep an eye out for Tennis For Kids sessions offering free coaching courses.
  • Clubs and community venues offer sessions for adult beginners 


Mini tennis clubs will run toddler tennis sessions for age 3&4. These sessions are designed to provide players with the opportunity to develop co-ordination, playing fun ball based games. As children grow they will progress into mini tennis:- Mini Red – Age 5-6 Mini Orange – Age 7-8 Mini Green – Age 9-10 The difference between these levels is the compression of the ball and the size of the court.
