ANZ Tennis Hot Shots

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is Tennis Australia's Official Kids Starter Program for children aged 5-12 years old. 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. Children progress through the three developmental stages (ages are a guide only):

  • Blue stage: Introduce (ages 4-5+)

  • Red stage: Explore (ages 5-8)

  • Orange stage: Develop (ages 8-10)

  • Green stage: Encourage (ages 9+)

At each stage, ball compression and court size increases in line with the development of the player. This gradual progression improves their skills, and prepares them to play on a full-size court with a yellow 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 register as a Hot Shots Player
