Hot Shots is a fundamental approach to teaching tennis called “learning through play” based on developing skills in real tennis game situations. Children develop technically and tactically in an environment that’s always fun and exciting.
We are an authorised deliverer of ANZ Hot Shots, Tennis Australia’s official tennis program for children and employ Tennis Australia qualified coaches. Using smaller courts, racquets and low compression balls gives children the best start and makes learning tennis easy and fun.
It easy to enrol your children into a Hot Shots Class. Fill out the online application/enquiry form and a staff member will get back to you shortly to enrol your child(ren) in an appropriate class(es).
