The new junior tennis system starts kids with one type of ball and court, then helps them
progress to other balls and court configurations until they are ready for full-court tennis with
regular balls. The progression goes as follows:
Ages 8 & Under – Red and yellow balls, rackets up to 23” long and 2’9”-high nets
Ages 9 -10 – Orange and yellow balls, rackets up to 23”-25” long and 3’-high nets
Ages 11 & Up – Green and yellow balls, rackets 25”-27” long and 3’-high nets
Age recommendations are only suggestions. When a child improves enough, he or she can
move to the next level and play with older children if they’re good enough.
