First steps require help. The pressureless HEAD T.I.P. RED is the perfect ball for kids between 5 and 8 years who are about to make their first steps on the court. It is significantly softer, bigger, and 75% slower than a standard tennis ball, which increases the reaction time and makes hitting the ball a lot easier and more fun. In addition, its red and yellow two-tone felt makes the ball easier to see for kids. Developed with trainers and kids, the HEAD T.I.P. RED is perfect for the ITF's small red court (11m x 5-6m). The ball is part of HEAD's Tennis Instruction Program (T.I.P.), a unique approach to help youngsters learn the game right, developed in cooperation with the International Tennis Federations "Tennis Play and Stay!" campaign.
