Orange Ball (Ages 8-9)
This is played on a bigger court than red but still not full court. This allows players to get used to hitting over a big net, without having to cover the whole court, as the baseline on an orange ball court is halfway between the service line and the baseline. In addition the ball bounces slightly higher than a red ball, which acts as the next progression towards yellow ball. The session will be capped to 6 players and there will be an increased focus on tactics compared to coaching in the red ball groups.
