LTA Youth Orange Stage

The Orange stage is a great way for players to continue their progress from the LTA Red stage and is aimed at players aged ten to thirteen.

Players develop a more rounded game by learning a range of techniques and tactics. Courts are bigger and wider than the red stage, but still smaller than full-size tennis courts.

There are team and individual competitions with matches using tie-break scoring

LTA Youth Green Stage

During the Green Stage of the LTA Youth, children will learn to train. They are continuing to develop physically and are growing towards the full-size game. It may take them time to adapt to their new challenges on the full- size court

They’ll be playing a more variety game and starting to identify and develop their own strengths and weaknesses. Children develop a smarter game working out how they can beat their opponent through the use of space. They can also start to problem solve to win matches and will become accountable for their own actions.

LTA Youth Yellow Stage

The Yellow stage is a great way for players to continue their progress from and is for children aged fourteen to seventeen.

Players can now put their technique and skills into practice on a full size court with a faster ball which will help to develop all aspects of their game.

There are also individual and team competitions, with scoring extended to short sets.

By this point we hope kids will be tennis players, playing for the Club in competitions and fans of the game for life!
