The Red stage is for beginners. The red ball is larger than a yellow ball and doesn’t bounce as high (just 25 per cent compression), making it a breeze for even the youngest players to hit it comfortably. The courts and nets used in the Red stage are much smaller and easier for kids to move around.
Recommended racquet size:21–23 inches
After mastering the Red stage, children move on to the Orange stage where the ball bounces a little higher (50 per cent compression) and the court is a bit bigger. Kids continue to develop their skills in a modified tennis environment while having a great time.
Court size: 6.4 m × 18.29 m
Tennis ball: orange ball (50 per cent compression)
Recommended racquet size:23–25 inches
The ball used in the Green stage has a higher compression (75 per cent of a yellow tennis ball) and children play on a full-size court.
Court size: 10.97 m × 23.78 m (full court)
Tennis ball: green ball (75 per cent compression)
Recommended racquet size:25–27 inches
