Mini Tennis

South Somerset Mini Tennis Series 2016/17

We are now in our seventh year of the Mini Tennis Series in South Somerset and continue to work with our Junior Tournament Co-ordinator to improve the junior performance of young tennis players in South Somerset. 

Mini Tennis is a variation of tennis using smaller courts and slower balls to allow junior players to improve their skills. There are three different levels, Red, Orange and Green dependent on age.

As with the all events in the South Somerset Mini Tennis Series, all junior tennis players competing will need to be a member of British Tennis and have a LTA rating. This is so that we can track the performance of junior tennis players in South Somerset. Membership of British Tennis is free for any junior player who is a member of an affiliated tennis club.
