6 Gifts to Inspire Your Kids to Play Outside
Need some gift ideas for your kids? Why not give the gift of tennis! It’s a fun sport that can be played for life.
The ANZ Tennis Hot Shots online store has heaps of tennis equipment for kids that can encourage your child to be active and play more often.
Modified tennis balls
The modified tennis balls used in the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program are unique, with their lower compression making it easier for children to learn how to play. Getting your child their own set of tennis balls is a perfect way to encourage them to be active and play. With packages available from $9.99, this is a perfect gift.
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots net
With a portable ANZ Tennis Hot Shots net, your child can play anywhere, anytime! The smaller nets, which are more size-appropriate for younger players, are available in two sizes: 3 metres and 5.5 metres. An added bonus is they are easy to pack away when not in use.
Your child does not always need to be on a tennis court to play ANZ Tennis Hot Shots – and drop-down lines make it easier to play anywhere. With a set of drop-down lines, your child can easily set up a temporary mini-court in the backyard or the driveway. They are also perfect for drills to help improve their game.
Another option for setting up temporary ANZ Tennis Hot Shots mini-courts, barrier tape is available from $9.99.
One size does not fit all when it comes to tennis racquets, so it is important to give your child a size-appropriate version to help them learn how to play. The smallest ANZ Tennis Hot Shots racquet is 19 inches and is perfect for a beginner. As your child’s skills improve, they will progress to using larger racquets. The good news is these smaller ANZ Tennis Hot Shots racquets are much more cost-effective than full-sized adult versions and are available from $24.99.
Another great gift idea is a totem tennis kit. Your child can enjoy hours of fun playing totem tennis, all while improving their hand-eye co-ordination. It is portable too, meaning they can play in the backyard, or even a park or beach. These are available from retail stores such as Rebel Sport and Target.
