About Tennis Hot Shots

Designed for every child, at every age and ability

Kids play on smaller courts with modified equipment to make it easier, and more fun to progress. We have lighter racquets, lower nets, and tennis balls that don’t bounce too high – so they are easier to hit and chase down.

Our program develops kids mentally, and physically. A child’s early years are when fine motor skills are developed, and tennis is amazing for developing coordination, speed, strength, and agility.

Tennis Hot Shots is above all – FUN! Kid develop their social and problem-solving skills while playing in a team, and as individuals. Also, they learn how to cope with wins and loses fairly.

Qualified coaches and volunteers

Qualified Tennis Australia coaches will help guide your child’s learning every step of the way. They will ensure they are playing with other kids of the same level. Some coaches offer a free trial too!

In a few remote and regional areas where we do not have a coach, our great club volunteers run Tennis Hot Shots. At these clubs, Tennis Hot Shots is less about coaching and more about facilitating play. Look out for “volunteer” when you search for Tennis Hot Shots.

All coaches and volunteers running Tennis Hot Shots have a valid Working With Children Check and Police Check.
