Woodside Junior Development Program


RED STAGE:
Beginning with a reduced-bounce red ball, smaller racquet and reduced court size (for ages 3-8), even the youngest child can learn proper technique, rules of the game, and develop a foundation to grow on.

ORANGE STAGE:
The next level (ages 9-10) graduates young players to a larger court size (60′) and orange training ball with a slightly higher bounce from the red ball. This stage builds skills with faster play and longer matches.

GREEN STAGE:
The green ball, which has only a slightly reduced bounce from a standard yellow tennis ball, is used at the 12-and-under stage. This stage also utilizes the full court size to help children transition to middle school and high school play.
