ECA Tennis Squads

At the heart of everything we do is player development. In order to achieve this our squads are set up to allow players to learn the game, develop their skills and have fun at the right level.

Fundamentally we have 4 levels of Tennis, each level uses different coloured tennis balls which are designed to play ‘slower’ and allow the greatest opportunity for players to develop their skills. Balls progress from Red, Orange, Green to Yellow.

Within each of these 4 levels we have 2 sub-categories, Blaze and Flames. Blaze squads are for developing players and Flames squads for advancing players.
