If you’re looking to get your kids into tennis, then look no further. Little Steps have scouted some of the best tennis classes in Singapore to get your little ones on the road to Wimbledon.
The Play! Tennis curriculum was developed in consultation with certified tennis coaches, sports psychologists and child-care professionals. Sessions cover the physical and mental aspects of tennis, which means staying focused on the game. They use age appropriate equipment such as smaller-sized rackets, and bigger and slower balls. Your kids will start with simple hand-eye coordination drills such as throwing and catching the balls with their hands before moving on to use their rackets to bounce and hit the balls.
Most importantly, Play! Tennis has a philosophy of developing the characters of the kids they coach. They want to teach them the right attitudes on and off the court, so that these positive values can help shape their character and channel their energy into something worthwhile!
Just from their name alone, you can tell that Banana Tennis Academy promises a world of fun for both kids and adults. Curated for kids aged 4 to 12 years old, their lessons also include a cute yellow t-shirt that students can wear! Training can start with private lessons to give kids one-on-one coaching, before they move on to group lessons where they will require less supervision and can pick up skills together.

Ignite Tennis Academy carefully curates its programs for kids, differentiating classes for age groups like having slower balls and shorter rackets for younger kids between 5 to 8 years old. Older kids 11 and older will then be able to progress onto taking longer training matches and faster balls to reach a more competitive level. Holiday camps are also available if your kid wants a more intense but faster approach to picking up the sport.

Their Play and Stay program provides a solid development structure for kids through three color-coded stages – Red, Orange, and Green. Through these stages, a series of developmental steps are created to allow players to progress along a pathway according to their age, ability, confidence, and orientation to the competition. In the process, the court size, racket length, ball speed, and duration of games all increase until the player is ready to move onto the full full-size court and use a yellow ball.
