We now use different balls for different ages and levels. This has been instrumental in allowing more success for the kids in developing tennis skills. The balls are weighted and filled will lower air to bounce at heights that coincide with ability, age and size.
Red Ball: larger ball with 25% air for younger kids and size, ages 4-6. Slower, lower bouncing ball with a bigger circumference enabling smaller kids to be more successful with hitting.
Orange Dot: normal size ball, lighter weight with 50% air for kids ages 6-10. This ball is for kids still developing strokes and smaller kids. It is light so it can’t travel too far and the bounce is low for a good contact height.
Green Dot: normal size ball, light weight with 75% air. This all is for the more advanced or older kids ages 10-14 that are now playing points and have developed consistent strokes. Lighter than a regular ball and less air so the bounce is still lower and the lighter ball helps with consistency. Next ball from here is the yellow ball!
