Cliff Drysdale Tennis is aligned with key partners in the USTA and UTR in providing more playing opportunities for all juniors. Growing the game of tennis starts with our youth, and our programs are tailored to support each players game and goals. We believe in a pathway of Clinics, Lessons and Play Options.
Featuring our lowest compression ball, red ball programs are typically aimed at children aged 5-7 and teach them key fundamentals of the game with the opportunity to have success in a shortened court setting. Players will improve hand eye coordination, footwork and much more.
Featuring a slightly smaller ball that includes compression, players aged 8-10 will be able to implement fast, advanced strokes but still earn the control and touch that is rewarded with the orange ball. These players train on a slightly larger court than Red Ball, but still abbreviated compared to a standard tennis court.
The closest to the standard yellow ball, green dot balls are for players 9-11 or advanced juniors who are beginning to rally and score in a full court setting. The slightly lower compression allows the ball to not bounce too high and teach good technique for our players.
For ages 10+, we have a variety of yellow ball programs segmented by player level and experience. These include graduating ROG players as well as new kids and teenagers to tennis.
For our advanced juniors, we offer specialized training with our world class team of pros. Here is where players will refine their strokes, understand tactics of play and begin to compete in sanctioned tournaments.
