Court: 60' x 21' singles; 60' x 27' doubles

Racquet: 23–25" dependent on the size of the player

Scoring Options:

  • Tiebreak to 7 or 10

  • Best of 3 tiebreaks to 7 or 10

  • 4 game set using no-ad scoring

Stage Description: Players move to a larger court, still relevant to their size. The ball is slightly faster than red ball, but lower bounce is appropriate for child's size and provides the ability to implement advanced techniques and tactics.  Matches are longer than at red, and children play both individual and team events. 

Ball: Green felt ball - slightly slower moving and reduced bounce from yellow felt ball giving more time to get to and return shots.  Green dots for advanced players and orange felt balls for intermediate.
