What is ANZ Tennis Hot Shots?

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is tennis for kids! It’s a program designed to help every child, no matter their age or ability, jump in and start playing tennis. ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is played on smaller courts with modified equipment, including lighter racquets, lower nets and low compression balls that don’t bounce too high. With four fun stages (Blue, Red, Orange and Green), qualified Tennis Australia coaches will help guide your kids every step of the way.

Kids can get involved in ANZ Tennis Hot Shots through Coaching, getting involved in Match Play or through Community Play. Free trials are available for Coaching programs at participating venues.
