What do the ball colors indicate?

Years ago, everyone - beginner or advanced - played with the same iconic yellow tennis ball. Today, there are four different balls of varying sizes and bounce to help starters gradually build up their tennis skills.

What is an NTRP rating?

A Junior National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) rating is a measuring system used to group players according to their skill level, rather than by age or gender. All first-time junior players start at a rating of 1.0 and advance by increments of 0.1 to the highest possible rating of 7.0. While most local competitions will not require a NTRP rating, some regional or national tournaments will require a NTRP rating.
