PROGRESSIVE TENNIS (6 to 10 yrs) – USING ORANGE BALL

HOW IT WORKS…

  • The GSM Tennis Club progressive program is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis and is for players aged 6 to 10. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red mini tennis stage, allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

It is the next stage before playing on a full sized court and helps players develop different shots and tactics.

What age is Mini Tennis Orange aimed at?

  • The progressive program is for players aged 6 and 10.

What ball is used?

  • An orange ball is used which is 50% slower than a normal ball, giving players better control at this important stage of development.

What size court is Mini Tennis Orange played on?

  • Mini Tennis Orange is played on a 18m x 6.5m court.

What height is the net?

  • 80cm at the middle of the net.

What racket is best to use?

  • A racket of 58cm – 63 cm (23” – 25”) should be used depending on the size and strength of the player.

What kind of competitions are there at Mini Tennis Orange?


In our progressive tennis program there are team and individual competitions with matches using tie-break scoring – usually the best of three tie-breaks.

The GSM Tennis Club program has been designed for players between the ages of 8 and 9 years old and allows the opportunity take part in exciting exercises with regular rewards which encourages players to develop their tennis skills at a pace that suits them.
