Hot Shots

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is a tennis program designed specifically to meet the needs of juniors. With the inclusion of smaller courts, modified equipment, lighter racquets and low-compression balls, tennis is fun and easy to learn for young children. There are four stages of the ANZ Hot Shots Program – Blue, Red, Orange and Green – targeted specifically to select age groups and levels. After these four stages, juniors move into a Yellow Ball Squad, which is outside of the Hot Shots Program
