The Tennis Kids World Tour For the first time this year, some of the kids in our “street tennis” project are participating in the so called ‘Tennis Kids World Tour’, organized by the Dutch tennis association. It's called World Tour because the dates when this competition for children aged 6-12 is played, coincide with the international tournaments on the ATP or WTA circuit. The tennis kids are divided in 4 groups, based on age and level of play: red - orange - green - yellow. The 4 colours of the groups are matching with the type of balls the children are playing with. Beginners play with a red ball: bigger and much softer than the regular yellow ball with which the best children are playing. The red group plays on a mini court: from service box to service box. In the orange group the children play on a 3/4 court, where the baseline is halfway the service line and the normal baseline. Green and yellow play on the whole court. This World Tour is an excellent opportunity for our kids to get some experience in playing matches, have fun and meet children from other tennis clubs.
