Tennis Xpress is an ITF Official Programme and is an easy, active and fun coaching programme for adults.
Tennis Xpress is designed as a 6-session course of 12 hours (6 x 2 hours or 12 x 1 hour) and is a specific ‘off-the-shelf’ course that has been developed by the ITF to introduce starter adult players to tennis using the slower balls.
The aim is to help starter adults to serve, rally and score (play the game) from the first session and to ensure that by the end of the course:
- all adults will know the basic techniques, tactics and the Rules of Tennis
- all adults will be able to play competitive points using the Green ball on a full court
For the purpose of this course, adult starter players are defined as those who:
- are complete beginners to tennis i.e. have never played tennis before, or
- who have received basic coaching but have never played the game outside of a coaching environment, or
- beginners returning to tennis after a long absence
Tennis for Kids
Tennis10s is tennis for players aged 10-and-under, played on smaller courts with slower Red, Orange and Green balls. It is a fun way to start tennis and makes it easy for children to play the game, develop good technique and tactics and a love for the sport.
Using the slower balls helps players to develop the most efficient technique and to be able to implement advanced tactics that in most cases could not be performed using the Yellow ball on the full court.
Tennis10s is part of the ITF’s Tennis Play and Stay campaign. There are three stages of Tennis10s that allow players to start at the suitable level for their ability - Red (Stage 3), Orange (Stage 2) and Green (Stage 1).
As the player develops and they develop their technical and tactical competences, they will progress from stage to stage. The following table details the three stages of Tennis10s:
