Junior Lessons Descriptions

Like tennis racquets, the types of tennis balls your child uses can aid in their tennis skills development. As your child grows taller, stronger, with more fully developed strokes and hand-eye coordination, they will gradually be able to handle a tennis ball that more closely mimics an adult ball. Junior tennis balls fall into four classes: foam, red, orange and green dot. Each progressively firmer than the previous one. Subsequently, as the ball gets firmer, the height of its bounce and distance it travels down the court increases. By matching the correct progressive tennis ball to your child’s needs will promote longer rallies, greater consistency and a more positive experience on the court.

Red Tennis Balls
Red balls are slightly larger than the standard ball and travel 75% slower. They are designed for 36′ courts and for children up to eight years old.

Orange Tennis Balls
Orange balls are the same size at the standard ball, but travel 50% slower. They are designed for 60′ courts and for children up to eight years old.

Green Dot Tennis Balls
Green dot balls are the same size at the standard ball, but travel 25% slower. They are designed for full length (78′) courts and for children up to twelve years old.


Rogers Rookie Tour

The Rogers Rookie Tour is a Kids Tennis entry level program offering non elimination events for novice boys and girls ages U10, U12 and U14 doubles.  This national program is designed to bridge the gap between entry-level tennis and the provincial competitive junior circuit.The series reaches hundreds of junior players from around the province each year. Players are ensured of multiple matches and receive a player package, including a Rookie Tour shirt at each event.  Participants will get a free “Recreational membership.”
