For kids who are looking to start their tennis journey – ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Coaching is the program for them!
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.
The Tenniscoaching.com.au pathway aligns itself with Tennis Australia's ANZ Hot Shots Tennis Lessons including Red, Orange and Green ball program.
The red ball is larger than a yellow ball and doesn’t bounce as high (just 25% compression), making it a breeze for even the youngest players to hit comfortably. The courts and nets used in the Red stage are much smaller making it easier for kids to move around and enjoy success. Red level players may be beginners, improvers or even advanced players.

Children at this particular stage now learn to play tennis on a ¾ court. This level of player draw on what they have learnt in the Red stage and extended their knowledge through exploring more detailed technique elements (spins and different variations), tactical elements, such as learning when to attack and defend during a point situation.
