Dear Parents and Players,
Welcome to our final TennisGear Hot Shots Newsletter for 2017. What a great year it has been and we hope your child is continuing to enjoy their tennis lessons with us.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new customers who have started tennis with us this term. We trust you are enjoying your tennis and having fun.
Hot Shots Tennis Program (ages 4-12 years)
Our Hot Shots Tennis Program is designed for players learning the game of tennis. Hot Shots tennis is Tennis Australia’s official starter program. It is designed to let children develop technically and tactically in an environment that is always fun and exciting. Aimed at children aged 4-12 years old, it uses modified courts, racquets and balls to keep things fun and easy. The Junior Tennis Coaching Program is based on a “learning through play” philosophy where children serve, rally and score. At Tennis Gear our experienced coaching team run a tailored program designed to develop each child’s game in a fun, encouraging and social environment.
Make Up Days
We offer two make up days per term for all players that may have missed a session due to bad weather. These take place:
· Week 5 Saturday of each term – November 4
· Week 9 Saturday of each term – December 2

TennisGear Club Championships
Our club championships were held last Sunday 22 October. Due to the rain the previous weekend, only Red and Orange ball events were held with a total of 60 entries. It was a fantastic day out for all our Hot Shot players. Our Green, Yellow ball and Junior Open event will be held on November 12 and if you would still like to enter please contact the pro shop.
Hot Shots League
Every Friday afternoon we run an additional program to compliment our Hot Shots groups called ‘Hot Shots Match Play’. This is a 90 minute session that prioritises teaching the basics of game play, learning to score, competing and sportsmanship.
If you feel your child is improving quickly and ready to add to their tennis program, please speak to your group coach or call the pro shop who can advise.

Hot Shot Player Packages
One important aspect in helping us develop our players is giving them the opportunity to play more tennis at an affordable cost. For those that are interested in adding to their tennis program, we currently offer two packages to include doing extra squads, a private lesson, a fitness and agility session and for the younger players, the option to play hot shots league. Please see the package options below and for any further information you can speak to your coach or the Pro Shop who can advise you further on which one would be best for your child.
Hot Shots Information Night
We had a great turn out at our free Hotshots match play evening where kids could come and enjoy a taste of what Tennis is all about. It was a great evening with a large number of kids participating. Later in the evening the courts were opened up to all members of the family. It was great to see Mums and Dads out there having a hit themselves!
We had a free sausage sizzle which was a great hit, and our Head Coach John Zelinski spent some time speaking with parents about our Junior program and the pathways on offer for all our Hotshots players as they start their journey to Wimbledon!
It was a great night due to all our wonderful players and their families getting involved. Thank you to everybody who attended and those who helped make the evening a success.
New Children’s Fundamentals Program and Ladies Day
All the ladies out there who are eager to get back into tennis but can’t because of child commitments. We have a great new program where you can come and enjoy a 60 minute Ladies social lesson and let your little ‘starts’ learn, laugh and develop their skills in our FUNdemental sports skills lesson.

Wow what a competition! It was an exciting 4 weeks of tennis for everyone and we really hope that all of you who played and took part really enjoyed it. It was the first time that the competition has been run here at the R0y Emerson Tennis Centre and it was a huge success. Thank you to all of you for making it so great.
The final night saw some beers, snags, banter and tough competition as 5 courts battled it out for one last time to see who could snatch the title. King Victor was the target and has been since week 1. With a target on his back, his night wasn’t going to be easy. The beers weren’t enough and Victor knew that.
We enjoyed some great long rallies, tough battles and racquet abuse on the day but the real winner of the day was the cold crisp beers waiting for all of our comeptitirs during the matches. What a great atmosphere of tennis.
We have done the final scores and the results are in. With some players only attending 2 of the weeks they would not fully qualify for the bonus points as some of the others who came to 3 or more. Our winners are:
Congratulations to Victor and Sebastien. You guys can come along and collect your prizes when ready. Thanks again to all of you who played. If you are interested in more competitions like this then you should try out the superleague competition that takes place on weeknights.
See you all around the club!

We are nearly at an end with the Summer League competition for 2017! Week 3 results are in and we have had some very close matches causing a large amount of shifting through the leaderboard. We still have our king Victor Vicaro reigning supreme but Julian Dodos is hot on his heels, behind by only 0.5 points!
Don’t forget players, next week is our last week with a start time of 7.30pm. We will have a small presentation to the winner and a BBQ for all involved. The last round is still open to anyone who wants to come along and play. See you all next Tuesday at 7.30pm!
|Player||Week 1||Week 2||Average||Week 3||Average|
With week 2 of the summer league done and dusted there has been some serious movement across the leader-board. With new players coming along and joining the competition, week 2 saw some upsets, surprises and great matches. The current standings are shown below. Please remember that you have to play a minimum of 2 weeks to be eligible to win the competition. We’ve got Ryan coming in to knock Victor off the top this week, however Ryan still needs to play one more week in order to be eligible. At this stage, Victor is still king!
2 weeks gone and 2 weeks left we have reached the halfway mark of our competition. Who will rise to the top and claim the prize? With two weeks of play left it is still anybody’s game at the moment. The last matches on January 24th will be slightly different with a BBQ, prizes and a 7.30pm start time.
Well done to everyone and we will see you guys back on Tuesday 17 January for round 3!

What a first week of Summer League at the Roy Emerson Tennis Centre! Even with the weather threatening to cancel the show, the league was able to be played out by it’s players. With the results calculated and posted below we have Victor and Julian currently leading the competition on 113 points each. Remember, the competition takes into account games won, games lost, sets won and sets lost. Along with bonus points for these also. So fight for very game!
With new players coming along for round 2, who will be at the top next week? Only time will tell. See you all on Tuesday 10 Jan for round 2!!!!!
