As a guideline for participation in Super 10s, players should be able to perform the following green ball key competencies. If you are unsure, please speak to your child’s private coach to assess whether Super 10s is the appropriate competition for the player’s stage of development. Key Competencies:

  • Differentiate speed and spin on first and second serves
  • Rally crosscourt for 10–15 shots varying height over the net, depth, speed and spin
  • Use approach, drive volley, volley and overhead in an offensive way
  • Keep great posture and maintain balance from a wide, narrow, and one-legged base
  • Display independence; pack their own bag for matches and practice, and complete a regular warm-up routine and practice regularly without the coach
