In tennis, the term “red ball” refers to a type of tennis ball typically used in lessons and competitions for children just starting to learn the game. The red ball is more significant than a regular tennis ball and has a softer, lighter texture, which makes it easier for young players to hit and control.

Red ball tennis is typically played by children between the ages of 4 and 6 who are just starting to learn the basics of the game. It is part of the International Tennis Federation’s (ITF) “Play and Stay” program, which aims to introduce tennis to children in a fun and engaging way appropriate for their age and skill level.

The use of red balls in tennis has become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more coaches and instructors recognize the benefits of starting young players off with a ball that suits their size and ability. Using a red ball, children can develop their hand-eye coordination, footwork, and technique in a safe and supportive environment, which can help build their confidence and enthusiasm for the game.
