The journey begins with ANZ Tennis “Hot Shots”. Mini racquets, mini nets, low compression balls – making tennis easy for kids at any age.
Hot Shots is tennis for kids! It’s a program designed to help every child, no matter their age or ability, to jump in and start playing tennis.
Hot Shots is played on smaller courts with modified equipment – mini racquets, nets and low compression balls. With five stages (Blue, Red, Orange, Green and Yellow), qualified coaches will help guide your kids every step of the way.
Hot Shots is not only heaps of fun, it’s also a great way to get your kids active. They will develop their agility, hand-eye coordination and overall fitness and learn important social skills and make friends along the way.
You can be sure your child is playing at a level that’s right for them, with a Hot Shots class to suit every age and ability.
