Jon’s Tennis Academy (JTA) is a registered Tennis Australia Hot Shots. We aim to provide a fun and family friendly environment to help people of all ages enjoy tennis and achieve their individual tennis goals.
We provide tennis coaching programs that cover a range of age and skill levels from beginner children to adult. Our aim is to provide a development path for junior tennis players through coaching programs at clubs and schools, with personalised attention and a fun filled environment.
By agreement with schools, Jon’s Tennis Academy conducts Tennis in Schools programs. JTA is equipped with mini nets, racquets and modified balls so schools can include the game of tennis in their physical education program.
For juniors, the Hot Shots program is the most popular coaching program and is fully endorsed and supported by Tennis Australia. This program is complemented by the Australian Sports Commission Game Sense Approach to assist players with the activities in a fun and friendly environment.
The Hot Shots program is just for kids. Smaller courts, lighter racquets and low-compression balls that don’t bounce too high make learning tennis fun and easy for primary school-aged children. This means that kids are able to start rallying and having fun right from their first lesson.
The program is designed for 4-10 year olds. There are four stages – Blue, Red, Orange and Green – that help to develop children’s skills and confidence.
For new players, JTA recommends a free assessment lesson to determine the most appropriate starting level.
Beginner to intermediate group adult classes provide a comprehensive fundamentals program that aim to have you playing better tennis.
A great way to put into practice what you have learned and to test yourself is the combination of coaching and match play.
The Head Coach, Jon is a fully qualified Tennis Australia Club Professional Coach. Jon has over ten years experience coaching tennis to all ages as well as teaching various sports to preschool children. He has developed his own style to make the lessons fun filled, enjoyable and to keep children active and engaged while they learn new skills.
