What is Tennis Hot Shots?

Tennis Hot Shots is based on a “learning-through-play” philosophy, which means that playing the game of tennis is the central feature of each session. Smaller courts, racquets and softer tennis balls makes it possible to develop children’s skills faster, while the red, orange and green stages offer a clear pathway.

Stages of Development

Children use 25% compression red balls that bounce lower, slower and are much easier to hit. Children play on 3 metre or 6 metre wide courts. Recommended racquet size is 21–23 inches. Children use 50% compression orange balls and play on regular courts with reduced length and width. Recommended racquet size is 23–25 inches. Children play on a full-sized court using 75% compression green balls. Recommended racquet size is 25–27 inches.
