NSW Hot Shots Leagues
What is an ANZ Tennis Hot Shots League?
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Leagues are a fun and social way for kids to get into team tennis, also teaching them 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 leagues are 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:
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Orange Ball League ( 7 – 10 years old)
Aimed at children who are beginning to play the sport and have developed an understanding of tennis through ANZTHS coaching, Community Play or at their local school.
ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Green Ball League (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 ANZTHS Coaching, or have progressed from an ANZTHS orange ball league.
