Red Ball competition set for Fairmont

Manders Tennis Management will host a Red Ball Championship for players aged six to 12 at the Fairmont Southampton on Sunday, June 9.

The event will feature under-6, under-8, under-10 and under-12 competitions from 10.30am to 12.30pm

Red ball has proved a great way for players to start out in tennis and is predominantly targeted at younger players, played on smaller courts with shorter rackets and softer balls.

It is just like the full format of the game and gives players opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shots.

The ball is 75 per cent slower than a yellow ball, which has been developed to make it easier for beginners to learn the game.

The entry deadline will be on Friday, June 7.
