Mini Tennis - Compete

Understanding Mini Tennis

Not sure what age group your child falls in for this season?

Mini Tennis Ratings

Mini Tennis Ratings are based on participation, not just winning. The emphasis is to get children used to the idea that playing matches is the norm, not something new or different. We are able to record the results of all the matches that children play as long as they are registered with British Tennis. More information on Mini Tennis Ratings can be found on the LTA website.

Finding Competitions

Tennis competitions are graded between 7-1 to give an indication of the standard of play and to make it easier to identify suitable competitive opportunities.

 

For Mini Tennis Players who are new to competing, we would recommend finding a Grade 7, Grade 6 or Grade 5 competition to start off with. 

We are always happy to help if you have any questions so please speak to your coach or contact us directly: Info@exceltennis.co.uk
