In tennis, the term “green ball” refers to a type of tennis ball slightly softer than a regular tennis ball but faster and heavier than an orange ball. The green ball is typically used in lessons and competitions for children who have progressed beyond the orange ball stage but have yet to be ready to play with a full-sized ball.
Children typically play green ball tennis in grades 9 and 10, who have already developed some basic skills and techniques but are still improving their consistency and control. Using a green ball allows young players to continue developing their skills and tactics while introducing them to the faster pace and more significant challenges of a full-sized court.
The green ball is part of the International Tennis Federation’s (ITF) “Play and Stay” program, which aims to promote the game of tennis and encourage more young people to take up the sport. By using a green ball, coaches and instructors can help create a fun, engaging learning environment that is appropriate for the age and ability of their students and that will encourage them to continue playing and developing their skills over time.
