Tennis Camps

Superheroes 2

Tennis camps for juniors are run by Karen during the school holidays.

These camps are suitable for ages 5 to 17.


The Red stage is for beginners. The red ball is larger than a yellow ball and doesn't bounce as high, making it a breeze for even the youngest players to hit it comfortably. The courts and nets used in the red stage are much smaller and easier for kids to move around.


Orange balls bounce higher and move faster than the Red balls but lower and slower than the Green ball. They are a step toward the traditional yellow tennis ball while still remaining fun and manageable for players learning the game. 


Mini Tennis Green is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
