Hot Shots League
Where: ETKG Tennis Club (Cnr of East & South Tce, Kensington Gardens)
When: Sunday October 30th
Duration: 6 weeks
The Hot Shots League will run on Sunday's for 6 weeks during the school term and is the perfect compliment to your ANZ Hot Shots weekly coaching. The League is aimed at kids who are beginning to play the sport and have developed an understanding of tennis through Hot Shots coaching, Community Play or at school. Players get to play singles and doubles with matches finishing within approximately 90 minutes. All kids must be aged 7 at the commencement of the season.
The Hot Shots League is an ideal way for young players to learn how to compete fairly against one another without the pressure of regular Saturday Inter-club competition.
The session is supervised by High Performance Tennis coaches, and parents are on court the entire time helping with scoring, changing ends etc. Our aim is to make the introduction to competition as smooth and fun as possible.
Players learn how to score and how to position themselves in match situations and when they are ready they move successfully through to Saturday morning competition representing their chosen tennis club.
There will also be a player pack for every participant as well as medals at the conclusion of the season.
Players will also receive:
- the chance to play on court at the Australian Open or Emirates Australian Open Series!
- pre-sale ticket access to Kids Tennis Day presented by Nickelodeon events all over the country
- the chance to win a VIP Australian Open experience with ANZ Tennis Hot Shots of the Month
- access to money- can’t-buy competitions with prizes that include player meet and greets
- access to Australian Open ticket presages
- special discounts with our partners and online store
- Personal Accident Insurance in case your child gets any tennis injury niggles
