ANZ Hot Shots 

ANZ Hot Shots Program is a great way to start tennis. We understand the importnance of player development from the start. We provide a high quality, innovative tennis coaching program which you can try out for free! 

Hot Shots Tennis is Tennis Australia’s official starter program.  It is designed to let children develop technically and tactically in an environment that is always fun and exciting.  Aimed at children aged 4-11 years old, it uses modified courts, racquets and balls tailored to children's development.  The Hot Shots Program is based on a “learning through play” philosophy where children serve, rally and score. The program is a first building block of our comprehensive tennis development pathway where students acquire and develop all fundamental skills required for a game of tennis. Every student enrolled will receive a report card with competencies related to their stage.
