During school term time, the structured 8 week programme is delivered by Tennis Central’s 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!

  • 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 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.

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.

  • Saturday 11.00am-12.00pm
