The Hot Shots Match Play is a fun and social way for kids to get into team tennis, teaching them the basics of scoring and game play. Kids get to play singles and doubles and the entire team matches finish within approximately 60 minutes. The teams can include:
- Hot Shots 5-8 year olds Red Ball Mixed Teams
- Hot Shots 6-11 year olds Orange Ball Mixed Teams
- Hot Shots 6-11 year olds Green Ball Mixed Teams
Once juniors progress and reach green ball competency they may be invited to join a Development Squad using yellow balls. The Development Squad is a program for junior players who are committed to regularly practice and play tennis, including normally playing in competition teams and tournaments and involved in the Hot Shots Match Play.
The Development Squad is a comprehensive program, covering all aspects of tennis performance including tournament planning, technical work, tactical and match skills.
The Academy is for advanced yellow ball tennis players. The coaching program covers advanced performance for competition play, including planning, techniques, tactical and match skills.
