About This Activity

RED BALL tennis is the first step in progressive tennis. The transition to successful ORANGE BALL tennis will require a period of skill development where basic co-ordination and cooperative activities will lead to the development of the basic strokes and fundamentals... RED BALL Tennis is played on a 36' court turned sideways across the court from doubles sideline to doubles sideline (36 foot length). An oversized, high-density ball is used which is easier to visually track, receive and control - since it travels slower and bounces lower. Players use 19-21 inch racquets (depending on player size) which gives better racquet control. This modified equipment will help develop good biomechanics. Regular rules apply with an emphasis on learning the scoring and serving skills... Within the RED BALL program, a grid which identifies areas of the court, is used to establish the various level of precision that will eventually be the basis for tactical and strategic development. Athletic skills and rally play are a huge emphasis within RED BALL... There is a MAKE UP DAY for missed classes... Class Dates: Friday --> February 12, 19 & 26 March 4 & 11 MAKE UP DATE --> March 18 Sunday --> February 14, 21 & 28 March 6 & 13 MAKE UP DATE --> March 20
