Wellington Tennis Club hosted two LTA approved Red and Orange Ball Tournaments for children on Sunday 3rd June.
The tournaments aim to give young learners of the game a chance to play against one another but using specially adapted equipment. Rackets are shorter, balls softer, the nets are lower and courts made smaller with special line markers.
Sue Rackley, Chair of the club, said, “We had two tournaments, one for Under 8s and a second for Under 9s and a good turnout of players. This is a very good way for them to learn how to play the game – and it was fun too.”
