Court Size: 60’
At this stage, players have already learned the basic techniques of the game and are ready to develop more consistency and specific technique in their stokes. With developments in physical control and coordination, players will be challenged to cover the larger court size and to direct the ball away from the opponent. More focus will be placed on learning the tactics of the game, anticipating ball movements, and incorporating ball spin. Serving and return of serve are covered at a more advanced level.
(ages 10 - 12)
Court Size: 78’
At this stage, players will be getting used to the increased physical demands of covering a full-sized court while still using slower moving green balls. Players will be instructed in more advanced use of angles, spin, depth control, attacking and defending, and moving the opponent around the court. Additionally, the player will learn the tactic of learning to gauge the opponent's strengths and weaknesses.
