Play Tennis (Zoom Class) is now open for enrollment

Overview

Play Tennis (Zoom Class) is the basic tennis-related training at home for beginners, welcome kids aged 5 to 8 to participate. All participants who sign up for this course can get an “online training kit” for training purposes.

Play Tennis is a very important part of the HKTA Junior Development Programme as it serves to provide an ideal vehicle for the development of foundation tennis skills in young children. Through Play Tennis, the sport itself is introduced to Hong Kong juniors from age three onwards. Other talented juniors around age 9 or above with good potential may also join other programmes such as the Junior Squad, Young Athlete Training Scheme and others.

Play Tennis is an invaluable and enjoyable starting point for children looking to pick up tennis as a regular sports activity.

– Easy and fun
– Suitable for young and old
– Can be arranged almost anywhere

The more success a beginner has attempting to hit the ball back over the net, the more fun it will be. A reasonable technique will improve the beginner’s success rate and thus make the child’s time on the court all the more an enjoyable experience. Using the Play Tennis concept, most beginners can actually start to have successful rallies and actually begin to relish the amazing experience of playing tennis!

With the introduction of the tennis 10s by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), starting from 2013, the training in this programme will be using Red Tennis Balls and Orange Tennis Balls.

Family Class: Kids aged 3 – 5 with 1 parent (Coach ratio: 1:3 families)
Red Ball Class: aged 5-9 (Coach ratio: 1:3-7)
Orange Ball Class: aged 8-9 (Coach ratio: 1:3-7)
