start from 4 to 18 years old.
The Mini Series program uses special equipment, court-sizes and balls to shrink the game to the child. This translates to more fun, more hitting, more rallies and an easier route to playing real matches!
An easier route to success and fun competition helps translate to a lifetime of interest in the sport and set the foundation for a future tennis success. Our experienced coaches will work closely with each student to help guide them through our tennis pathway and get them on the road to playing great tennis whilst having lots of fun!
The Red Ball program is the first step on the LTCA pathway. Designed for our youngest players (roughly 4-7 years old), we play over a mini-net on a court about ¼ the size of a full size tennis court. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots. The focus at this level is to build the basic ABC’s (Agility, Balance and Co-ordination) as well as fundamental tennis technique - but whilst keeping things fun and pressure-free for our juniors. Some of the top Red Ball players will start to play matches and understand the scoring system as they become ready.
The Orange Ball program is a great way for players to continue their progress from Red Ball and is for players aged 8 to 10 years old. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full-size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics. Our Orange Ball players who graduated from Red Ball will usually be confident in playing matches and understand the scoring system - so they can play internal tournaments.
The final step before playing regular tennis, Green Ball is played on a full-size tennis court, with almost full-size rackets and balls which are a little softer (and therefore slower) than yellow balls. Green Ball is for players aged between 10-14 depending on level, and some exceptionally developed juniors may even start at 9 years old. The extra time the players get with the slower ball allows for longer rallies, and better accessibility even for new players who may join at this stage (depending on age). Most of our Green Ball players will be comfortable playing matches and scoring by themselves, and have a good understanding of basic tactics. Players may be playing internal or external tournaments depending on level.
Our Junior Series Program is the next level program for junior players up to the age of 18 years old and down to serious 11 year old players who may have moved beyond Green Ball. to develop technical and tactical strategies to compete for both singles and doubles competition. We also have classes in the junior series for teenage beginners who want to start catching up, it’s never too late to play great tennis!
Junior Series provides players with the most enjoyable experience, as well as the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential, with each level building on the skills developed at prior levels.
Tier 1 - Competition Level
Players in this group will be focusing on a disciplined and intensed game-based training to prepare them for competitive tennis. This program will be training players to pursue tennis excellence and give them the tools to for high-level competition. Players can step up from here to our Elite Series depending on performance.
Tier 2 - Advanced Level
Suitable for some of our strongest graduates from Green Ball, or for players aiming to play external competition in Bali or abroad. Players will still be developing their technique but also learning proper conditioning for tennis and more advanced tactics.
Tier 3 Intermediate Level
This junior series program could be a next step for certain players graduating Green Ball, for talented new players or from graduates from Tier 4. Players will start to play more friendly matches and develop further on their technique
Tier 4 Starter Level
This junior series program is designed for late starters, children in their teenage years that are starting to learn the game. It will focus on the basics of technical hitting, effective rallying and active games.
The Elite Series is designed for tennis players that competing in or preparing to compete in high-level competition. Players at this level are expected to be training 6 hrs a week minimum - although that training does not need to all be lesson based. Players may be pursuing USA College Scholarships, national competition success or a future on the professional tour - and our coaches will be guiding them every step of the way!
