Our Orange group practices on a 60-by-21-foot court, with an orange ball and a 23- to 25-inch racket.
The concept of rallying acquired in the Red Court level is still the main focus. However, players in this format are developing more advanced stroke technique, greater court coverage and improved recognition skills. Orange players need to develop greater racket-head speed to control the ball with improved pace, spin, height and depth.
Tactically, orange players are developing high percentage patterns with the forehand as a weapon from the baseline and improving net transition skills.
Orange players are progressing in their ability to hold serve with greater spin, power and control and are learning to read the serve and adjust the size of their backswing on the return accordingly.
