Focus of Mini Tennis

Ages 6 - 8 Years

Inspiring children to love the game and want to play means recognising how kids are motivated and knowing how to help them succeed. Use the power of sport to help your children to develop in an inclusive and structured environment, while incorporating a fun and playful way to learn. It is important that in our classes at KTG, the kids enjoy the game to be a sport they can play late into their adult life.

The process of learning varies for different children, thus our coaches will use appropriate teaching methods to set environments that meet each child’s needs. Our goal at KTG is to encourage children to love the game and want to keep playing it by creating a supportive and positive environment through appropriate teaching methods that meet each child’s needs.

Developmental Benefits of Tennis For Kids


Bone Strength

Playing tennis regularly strengthens the bones of young players and has been proven to help prevent osteoporosis later on in life.


Gross Motor Coordination

Large muscle groups will get conditioned quickly through court movement and ball-striking skills.


Hand-Eye Coordination

Kids who play tennis learn to constantly judge the timing between the approaching ball and the right point of contact, quickly accelerating their hand-eye coordination even when other activities and sports might have failed to do so.


Aerobic and Cardiovascular Exercise

Tennis gets kids moving! Without even realizing it, they’ll be running around for a good hour straight while maintaining a high energy level. That’s great for strengthening their heart, and also helping them, get a good night’s rest.



Side-to-side and up-and-back sprints for the ball will have kids running like the wind in no time!



During a single point kids may change direction as many as 5 times in 10 seconds!



Not only will kids learn to get into the good habit of stretching before and after being active, but they will also be constantly stretching and maneuvering for the ball, drastically improving their flexibility.



Learning to serve and the constant run-stop-run rhythm of the sport increases balance.
