Hotshots Tennis Coaching Gold Coast

Hotshots is based on a ‘learning through play’ philosophy which means that playing the game of tennis is the central feature of each session. Smaller courts, racquets and softer tennis balls make it possible to develop children’s skills faster.

There are three stages which offer a clear pathway for learning the game of tennis:

Kids Tennis Lessons Gold Coast - Junior Tennis Hot Shots Program Gold CoastRED: ages 5 – 8, played on quarter size courts with lower nets and 25% compression balls that bounce lower, slower and are much easier to hit.
ORANGE: ages 8 – 10, played on regular courts with reduced length and width and 50% compression balls
GREEN: ages 9+, played on full size courts with 75% compression balls

Hotshots is all about :

HAVING FUN - players are actively engaged, excited and motivated to participate,
DEVELOPING SOCIALLY - players build social skills such as working cooperatively with a partner, building friendships, encouraging teammates and showing sportsmanship during game play,
LEARNING THE GAME - players think and make decisions about meaningful tennis situations, and
DEVELOPING SKILLS - players have plenty of opportunities to improve and develop their tennis skills.
