What Is It?

What Is It? banner

MLC Tennis Hot ShotsANZ Tennis Hot Shots (ANZTHS) is just for kids. Smaller courts, lighter racquets and low-compression balls that don’t bounce too high make learning tennis fun and easy for primary school-aged children. This means that kids are able to start rallying and having fun right from their first lesson!

There are three stages – Red, Orange and Green – that help to develop children’s skills and confidence. Children are taught by qualified Tennis Australia coaches and progress at their pace, moving on to the next stage when they are ready.

You can find ANZTHS at more than 1000 venues around Australia. New programs begin each school term with coaching sessions lasting for 30–60 minutes depending on the children’s level. Use the search facility on your left to find a venue near you.

Coaching or Community Play?

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots coaching sessions are run by Tennis Australia qualified coaches. Our qualified coaches teach kids to play in fun, supportive and interactive sessions. ANZ Tennis Hot Shots coaching sessions can be one-on-one or in a group – ask your local venue what options are available. To find your nearest venue, enter your postcode in the ‘Where can I play?’ venue finder on the left-hand side of this page.

Community Play is designed to give kids the chance to have a hit in a supportive environment where the emphasis is on fun, not coaching. The Community Play program is conducted in clubs and centres Australia-wide by parents and club volunteers.
