ORANGE BALL (ages 7-9)

 This class continues to use a low compression (orange) ball on a 60ft court. The court size has increased as kids this age can cover more of the court; the ball has more compression than the red ball.

GREEN BALL (ages 10-15)

This class is for the older, yet players relatively new to tennis. The green ball has 25% less compression than the yellow ball; hence allowing success in rallying.
