LTA Mini Tennis will help coaches to attract and retain young children who are just starting the sport.
The LTA Mini Tennis Rally Awards have been designed for players between the ages of 3 and 10 years old, with specific activities for tots, red, orange and green stages. They are ideal for players of all standards as players can advances through the levels at their own pace.
The LTA Mini Tennis Rally Awards measure the ability of the players to play tennis in an objective framework which will ensure standards are consistent across Great Britain. The LTA Rally Awards will also help Mini Tennis players learn in stages and take part in exciting challenges with regular rewards, which encourage them to develop their tennis skills at their own pace.
Within each Rally Award there are key teaching points, movement, and mental skills for you to be aware of when developing you players. However, how you structure your coaching programme and sessions to develop your players is up to you!
Coaches can also purchase LTA Mini Tennis merchandise to support their programme, which will also help to engage and encourage kids.
