About Tennis Townsville Programs

Get your child involved in ANZ Tennis Hot Shots!

ANZ Hot Shots is based on a “learning-through-play” philosophy meaning 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, green stages offer a clear pathway.

FUN Players are actively engaged, excited and motivated to participate.

PLAY  Players think and make decisions about meaningful tennis situations.

SOCIAL  Players build social skills such as working cooperatively with a partner, building friendships, encouraging teammates and showing sportsmanship during game play.

SKILLS  Players have plenty of opportunities to improve their tennis skills.

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots has programs designed to help every child, no matter their age or ability, jump in and start playing tennis. It is played on smaller courts with modified equipment, including lighter racquets, lower nets and low compression balls that don’t bounce too high. 

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is not only heaps of fun, it’s also a great way to encourage your kids to maintain an active lifestyle.

Each lesson takes place in an environment which promotes participation and inclusion. They are run in small groups where kids are introduced to a sport they can play for life.

Kids get involved through coaching, and move into Match Play, with the possibility of gradually leading into tournament participation and Club Tennis. The Kids who become involved in Match Play will learn the basics of game play, as well as scoring.

 The table below shows all the programs on offer with Tennis Townsville.

More about the Intermediate

At this level players are introduced to more advanced strokes and patterns of play. They are also introduced to singles and doubles play. Coaching provides players with competitiveness and fun, and they are much more time effective.  Group situations allow the coach to create new and interesting drills while still focusing on repetition. 

More about the Intermediate to Advanced

This is for players interested in increasing participation in tournaments and further developing and improving their tennis skills (advanced strokes, patterns of play, tactics and strategies) and is directed at players 9 to 17 years.

Does my child need to bring anything?
