ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Match Play

WHAT IS ANZ TENNIS HOT SHOTS MATCH PLAY?

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Match Play is a program designed to give children aged 7-11 years old, who are already playing tennis, the opportunity to transition from learning the game to playing matches in a fun team environment. It is intended to give children a great experience which will enable them to fall in love with the sport, and retain them as lifelong participants.

 

WHAT WILL KIDS LEARN FROM PARTICIPATING IN MATCH PLAY?

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Match Play will help participants learn the following:

  • Understanding how to play tennis matches, including scoring and positioning on the court
  • Learn and understand how to implement what they are learning through coaching into a match environment
  • Understand the values of sportsmanship and what it means to be part of a team working together
  • Develop social skills which will be beneficial outside of sport
