NSW Hot Shots Match Play
What is ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Match Play?
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Match Play is a fun and social way for kids to get into team tennis, whilst also learning the basics of scoring and game play. Kids get to play singles and doubles and the entire team’s matches finish within approximately 75 minutes. The program is a weekly team based internal competitions that feature short format matches for Orange and Green ball players. There are two competition categories that cater for players of different standards:
Orange Ball Match Play (7 – 10 years old)
Aimed at children who are beginning to play the sport and have developed an understanding of tennis through Hot Shots coaching, Community Play or at their local school.
Green Ball Match Play (9 – 11 years old)
Aimed at children who have some experience in playing the sport and have developed an understanding of tennis through participating regularly in Hot Shots Coaching, or have progressed from an Orange Ball Match Play program.
