Short tennis, a tennis class for everyone! Also known as short-court tennis or mini tennis which is played on half the court but twice the fun! Typically played for a shorter duration than standard tennis and is perfect for anyone new to tennis, or simply as a fun activity of its own.
Similarly one may ask, how do you make a mini tennis?
Keeping this in consideration, what are the rules of mini tennis?
Mini Tennis Scoring does not use traditional tennis scoring i.e. 15, 30, 40 etc. Instead, simple numbered scoring is used, i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. Players don’t change ends (unless there is an obvious advantage, then at every 6 point juncture) If scores are equal at the whistle a deciding point is played.
What is the Mini tennis?
Mini tennis provides children with the perfect opportunity to learn the fundamentals of tennis at an early age. Designed for children aged between 4 and 10, mini tennis utilises smaller courts, nets and rackets as well as lower-bouncing tennis balls to develop vital tennis skills and techniques.
Featuring shorter courts, nets, rackets and soft, low-bouncing balls, Mini Tennis provides the perfect introduction to tennis for young children. There are four stages of Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green – each with their own court size and ball-type.
