Singles Box League

This is a round robin competition for Charvil tennis club adult members and juniors who are old and confident enough to play matches against adults. Each match will be one tiebreak set in duration. Players will play every other player in their box - around 3-6 matches. We may have one box or multiple boxes depending on the number of entrants. It is the responsibility of the players to arrange their own matches.

Players should only enter if they are committed to playing all of their matches. The deadline for completing matches is the end of August. Players will arrange to play their opponent at a usually convenient time. By entering players agree to us sharing their email/phone number with other players in the tournament for the purpose of organising the matches.

Players should email the results to Nick Adley. Regular updates of the standings will be provided. There will be a prize for the winner of each box. To enter please let Nick Adley know by Sunday 26th of May email or phone 07840 567907 or let Nick know at the courts.

Green Balls Coaching

There are four stages of Mini Tennis; Tots, Red, Orange and Green, each with their own court size and type of ball. This tailored approach enables players to develop vital skills and techniques at an early age.

Tots is for children aged three to four years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

Red (5-8) is played on small courts with short rackets and red balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

Orange (9,10) is a great way for players to continue their progress from Red. It is played with shorter rackets, orange 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.

Green (11+) is a great way for players to continue their progress from Orange. It is played on a full-size tennis court, with bigger rackets and green dot balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to full compression yellow balls on a full-sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game.
