SAFRA Jurong

Red Ball (4 to 6 years old)

Red ball are suitable for kids new to the sport where they can just have fun hitting a bigger and less compression ball for easier eye-hand coordination. Games can be used to help the kids get better at coordination, balance and agility exercises. It will be a good progression towards orange ball. They will learn forehand, backhand, volley and serve.

Orange Ball (7 to 10 years old)

Orange ball is a smaller ball than the red ball and kids should be able to have adequate hand eye coordination and control with short rallies. Children will learn the basics of forehand, backhand, volley and serve and can manage a mini tennis or play within a three quarter court for orange ball.

Green Ball (11 to 13 years old)

Children with some play experience can work on more movement drills and games to construct some tennis points. All strokes for tennis would be covered with drills such as forehand, backhand, volley and serve.

SAFRA Tampines

Adult Beginner

The beginner programme will equip the introductory player with all the necessary basic skills to help the player to get on court and start playing tennis. Forehand, backhand, serve, volley and more will be covered during this programme. Players will also learn the rules of the game, scoring as well as court areas and lines.

Juniors Level 1 (5 to 8 years old)

The Juniors Level 1 programme caters to the younger tennis players, focusing on fun and games so children can associate tennis with enjoyment. The programme involves eye-hand coordination games, moving and running games, and most of all, fun and play for the duration of the class. It is a good lead-in class prior to the children moving on to the Level 2 programme, where they subsequently start learning the basics of the tennis game, for instance, forehand, backhand, volley and serve.

Junior Level 2 (9 to 12 years old)

The Junior Level 2 will take the children's tennis to the next level. Children with some playing experience will fit well here. All strokes of tennis will be covered with the drills becoming more movement-orientated, with games leading towards more tennis point play. Some aspects of the programme include directional hitting, smashes, serving, point play and physical fitness. This is where the children begin to get into the real game.
