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.
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is split into four stages;
Our Hot Shots Group Lessons cater to all students from beginner to intermediate player standards aged 4 to 12 years old. In these lessons students use low compression balls and a modified court to begin to explore the fundamental and perceptual motor skills and tennis basics. As the children progress and start to enjoy learning tennis skills, emphasis moves to learning to score and playing the game of tennis. These sessions are 45 minutes in duration. Our average ratio is one coach per 6 players. We have special classes for our younger Red Ball players called Mini-Red. These classes are 30 minutes in duration with a one to four class size ratio.
