At this age range, the kids already show quite an advanced motor coordination capacity that enables them to begin to play tennis, but it is necessary to take into account that their capacity for attention is not yet very developed. At this age, the constant distractions turn tennis lessons into a mere game with rackets and balls.
Although these classes do not serve to improve their technique, they will make the child become familiarised with the equipment and with the basic ideas of the game. What is most recommended is for the child to use during his/her “training” rackets, nets, and balls that adapt to his/her physical conditions
Some basic techniques of one-handed forehand; two-handed backhand; upper and lower arm serve; forehand and backhand volley etc.
Motor and Cognitive skills example:
hand-eye coordination; balancing (static (still) and dynamic (moving)); inertia control; opposite force control; momentum adjustment (linear & circular); use of elastic energy; use of coordination chain; agility building etc.
Racquets example: 19-inch to 21-inch tennis racquets
Net height (at the centre): 80-83.8cm; 31.5-33in)
Ball use: Red balls
