Red, Orange, and Green Pathway

Our Red, Orange, and Green Pathway introduce tennis to children based on age, physical size and ability.

By modifying the court dimensions (36’ or 60’ in length), equipment (appropriately sized tennis racquets and red, orange or green balls), net height and scoring system, combined with a match play component, children can develop better technical and point playing skills, while having more fun along the way.

The classes offered in this Pathway include ...
