Hot Shots Tennis


We don’t put our timetable online, as it can change from school term to school term. We run classes at times, and on days, to suit our clients needs so the program is customised for our clients and their families.

Hots Shots is the Tennis Australia modified program that caters to pre-school aged children between 3-12 years.

Cagney Tennis Academy have been providing Hotshots tennis sessions and competitions since Tennis Australia introduced it over 20 years ago.  The program runs for 10 weeks / a school term, and is a modified program in 3 stages that allows children to learn how to play tennis in a fun, games based environment.

Red Ball 3-5 years

Orange Ball 6-9 years

Green Ball 9+ years.

Kids play on smaller courts with modified equipment to make it easier, and more fun to progress. We have lighter racquets, lower nets, and tennis balls that don’t bounce too high – so they are easier to hit and chase down.

Our program develops kids mentally, and physically. A child’s early years are when fine motor skills are developed, and tennis is amazing for developing coordination, speed, strength, and agility.

All exercises, drills and games are designed to help children learn and use correct tennis technique, while encouraging children to experience, learn and problem solve along the way.

Tennis Hot Shots is above all – FUN! Kid develop their social and problem-solving skills while playing in a team, and as individuals. Also, they learn how to cope with wins and loses fairly.

It is designed and endorsed by Tennis Australia and is the ONLY junior sports program that is endorsed by the Board of Education as compatible with the National Curriculum in schools.  In our 30+ years of experience, we have found it the best program to teach children how to play tennis, quickly, effectively and correctly. Children coming through this program are then able to progress into out competitions as well.

Our classes are graded, with children learning and experiencing tennis alongside other children of similar age, ability and experience.

All our coaches are accredited / qualified with or have trained with Tennis Australia’s Coach Membership team.
