Oriam Mini Tennis Programme

At Oriam Indoor Tennis Centre, we use the nationally recognised LTA Youth/Mini Tennis model which is a great introduction to the sport for young children aged between 3 and 10 years old. It’s just like the real thing, but with smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower-bouncing balls. In addition to our Pre-School Tots Blue’ sessions, there are three levels of Mini Tennis; Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size, type of ball and lesson structure. This tailored approach, based on age and physical maturity enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age whilst moving up the colour levels developing their confidence and skill set.

  • Mini Blue: Children Aged 3 - 5
  • Mini Red: Children Aged 5 - 8
  • Mini Orange: Children Aged 8 - 9

Launching January 2024

  • Mini blue (3-5yrs)

  • Mini Red (5-8yrs)

Mini Blue: Ages 3 - 5

This introduction to tennis will include lots of fun games, ball skills, variety and exercises to improve their balance, agility and co-ordination while learning how to play the sport we love! At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s getting to grips with the basics in a safe and structured environment on a small court with mini racquets and sponge balls.

Court Size: The court size for pre school tots is dimensions of 11m x 5.5 (similar to a badminton court).

Equipment: A sponge ball and mini racquet size 17" - 21" is recommended.
