What is ANZ Tennis Hot Shots? It is Tennis Australia's official kids' starter program for children aged 5-12 years old.

It's for kids and through the use of modified court sizes and low-compression balls, kids learn to serve, rally and score in a game that is appropriate to their developmental needs.

Building them up for bigger and better things, children progress through the three developmental stages - Red, Orange and Green.

At each stage, ball compression and court size increases in line with players' development. This gradual progression improves players' skills and prepares them to play on a full-size court with a regular ball.

At ANZ Tennis Hot Shots, children will:

  • Play with modified equipment that is appropriate to their age, size and ability
  • Meet new friends, have fun and stay healthy
  • Develop new skills and coordination
  • Have the opportunity to play in challenge events where all players receive a participation gift
  • Be presented with a T-shirt when they enrol for one term of ANZ Tennis Hot Shots
  • Graduate to playing on a full-size court through the “learning to play” pathway.
