Students must know all strokes, be able to rally, and have previous match play or tournament experience to qualify for this group. Kids in the orange ball group will work on improving technique, footwork/ movement, live ball rally skills, strategy, and point play. We encourage students from this class to compete in local tournaments and leagues. We feel that playing lots of matches at a young age is a great way to gain experienced needed to become a good sectional and national level in the future. The orange ball group is the first stepping stone to becoming a college tennis player. When we feel the kids are ready we will move them from this class into our green ball program.
