Orange Ball Tennis coaching for kids 7-10yrs

The Orange Ball program is where we start to examine every stroke as it applies to learning good tennis technique. Each session combines coaching and games to challenge the players.
Excel Tennis coaches are strong advocates for enjoying the game and having fun while we learn and perfect our tennis.

Players will learn consistency, hitting to different targets and are introduced to playing with a variety of spin. As the players progress to the INTERMEDIATE and PRO levels they will incorporate serve, rally and scoring together in various point play games with a strong emphasis on guiding the player towards competition if they desire.
The PRO groups may move to a Green Ball.

  • Max. 6 per group
  • Play 3/4 court
  • Orange low compression ball is used which is 50% slower than a normal ball
  • 23 & 25 inch racquets
