JUNIOR TENNIS COACHING

Tennis Central offers a 8 week Junior Coaching program during school term time (6 week program during Term 3 in Winter) delivered by our highly qualified and experienced team of coaches.

What is Tennis Hotshots?

Tennis Hotshots is Tennis for kids!

It’s a program designed to help every child, no matter their age or ability, to jump in and start playing tennis.

Tennis Hotshots is played on smaller courts with modified equipment, including shorter lighter rackets, lower nets and low compression balls that don’t bounce too high. With four fun stages (Blue, Red, Orange and Green) your Tennis Central Coaching Team can help guide your kids through every step of the way!

Hot shots Red is aimed at players aged 8 years and under. It is played on small courts with modified balls and rackets. It is just like the real game and gives young players an opportunity to have long rallies and to develop tactics relevant to the full version of the game.

  • Net Height: 80cm in the middle of the net

Hotshots Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Hotshots Red and it is aimed at players aged 8 to 10 years old.

It is played with shorter rackets and softer balls, whilst the courts are longer and wider than red ball tennis, they are still smaller than a full sized court, allowing young players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.

  • Court size: 18m x 6.5m
  • Net Height: 80cm in the middle of the net
  • Ball: An orange ball is used which is 50% slower than a yellow ball, giving players control at this early stage of development.
  • Racket: A 23”-25” racket is recommended depending upon the strength and size of the player.

Hotshots Green is a fantastic way for players to continue their development from Hotshots Orange. It is played on a full sized tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls that are only 25% slower than yellow balls. This is the final stage before players move on to yellow balls and it helps to develop and improve all aspects of their game.

  • Court size: Normal Sized Court
  • Net Height: Full net height
  • Ball: A green ball is used, which is 25% slower than a yellow ball.
  • Racket: A bigger racket of 25”-26” should be used.

  • Yellow Ball tennis is the complete version of the game played on a regulation size tennis court using full sized rackets and full yellow tennis balls. This is the perfect progression for players to develop from the Hotshots program or for older children looking to take up the game at a later stage.

The main focus at this stage is the technical developments and linking them with tactical situations within the game.

Court size: Normal Sized Court

Net Height: Full net height

Ball: A yellow ball is used.

Racket: A full sized racket of 27” should be used.
