Tennis News

Romsey & Abbey Tennis Club runs the LTA Mini Tennis Awards programme for young players aged 5 - 10 years old who are looking to develop their tennis-playing abilities. There are 3 stages to the Mini Tennis programme Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age. For players under 5 years old we have our Teddy Tennis programme which uses music, stories & pictures to teach tennis in a fun and interesting way. For more information on Teddy Tennis click HERE .

To work in conjunction with the LTA Rally Awards we have developed our own Rally Awards Folder, which is exclusive to Romsey & Abbey Tennis Club. This folder helps children keep track of their progress and stores their awards at each level.  It is also full of extra information, tips and games which children can complete at home in their own time.

The Rally Awards work just like swimming awards; as a child progresses and becomes a better swimmer they receive awards for swimming 10, 25, 50 or 100m. The Mini Tennis Awards work in a very similar way; in each of the 3 stages players complete a number of different awards across 4 consistent skill areas. 

These are: 

Rally: Learning and developing rallying skills

Serve: Learning and developing serving skills

Netplay: Learning and developing movement forwards and volleying

Score & Compete: Learning the rules, how to score, how to compete & fair play

For each of the 4 skills, players can be working towards one of the different skill levels 5, 10, 15 & 20. Players can be working on different levels at the same time, i.e. working towards rally 10, while also working on their serve 5, but must complete all levels at Red, Orange or Green to move  from one stage to the next.

Stage / Level 5   10 15 20
Red - 5 to 8 years old X X X X
Orange - 8 to 10 years old   X X X
Green - 10 years old   X   X

There are more levels at stage Red than in Orange or Green as players stay longer at this stage than others
