Mini Tennis Rally Awards
The Highland Spring Mini Tennis Awards have been designed for players between the ages of 5 and 10 years old to help mini players take part in exciting exercises with regular rewards which encourage them to develop their tennis skills at a pace that suits them.
Mini players progress through different levels by acquiring new skills and taking part in exercises.
Within each of the levels, Mini players learn and are tested on four important skills:
- Rally – Learning and developing rallying skills
- Serve – Learning and developing serving skills
- Come to the net – Learning and developing movement forwards and volleying
- Score and Compete – Learning the rules, how to score, how to compete and fair play
Within the Mini Tennis Awards there are:
Key teaching points – these are technical points to be aware of, which can be built into lessons as areas of development, but they should not all be used at the same time.
Movement – movement skills are vital for development and are written into each Awards skill exercise.
Mental skills – are vital for all round game development and are written into each Awards skill exercise.
