DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS AND LEVELS

The Finns Junior Sports Academy (JSA) Tennis Programme is split into 4 colors of balls: Red, Orange, Green and Yellow. Each color is also divided into 3 different levels based on age and ability: Starter, Intermediate and Performance. Different colors and levels utilize different equipment and court sizes that are in line with the International Tennis Federation’s guidelines on developing junior players. Red and Orange ball groups, for example, utilize smaller court sizes and rackets to “shrink the game” and facilitate learning for our youngest players.

Levels do have age guidelines, but players may be moved up or stay in levels based on skill. The objective is to enable better learning by placing players of around the same ability together.

Spots are limited: a maximum of 6 players are allowed per coach in any given class to ensure the quality of each session.

JSA Tennis is held in the Tennis Centre of Finns Recreation Club – West.
