TENNIS HOT SHOTS

For younger children we offer the Tennis Hot Shots coaching programme. Tennis Hot Shots is the national starter tennis programme for New Zealand children. The programme uses smaller courts, shorter racquets and softer balls than normal. Sessions are made up of tactical, technical, fun and social elements which create developmental readiness in children. We adhere to lesson plans that have been designed by player and coach development experts worldwide.

RED RACKETS
AGE 5 - 8

Children use a ball with 25% compression, making it easy for them to hit. The courts and nets used in the Red stage are much smaller than normal (3m or 6m wide). Red ball players are taught the basic fundamentals, which consist of swing paths, footwork and basic motor skills. We achieve these objectives while also having a bunch of fun!

ORANGE RACKETS
AGE 8 - 10

In the Orange stage the ball bounces higher (50% compression) and children play over the regular sized net on a three quarter length court. This class is designed for children who are aged 8 - 10 , unless the player has progressed out of Red stage. Players in Orange Rackets are taught more advanced techniques, tactics and movements. We help grow the players confidence to serve, rally, score.

Private tennis lessons are for anyone who wants to improve their tennis skill set faster. We will personalise the lesson to your particular objectives whether it be to improve specific technical aspects of your game or to generally improve your overall ability.
