WHAT IS HOTSHOTS?
The Millennium Tennis Academy introductory coaching programs and comps scales the game of tennis to the size of the children. The program is part of ANZ Tennis Hots Shots – Tennis Australia’s official kid’s starter program. Tennis Hot Shots uses modified court sizes, slower and softer balls, and smaller racquets that makes learning the game fun and easy.
The players progress through 3 main developmental stages – Red, Orange and Green – before playing on a full court with normal balls. At each stage the ball compression, court size and racquet size increase in line with the player’s development. Within each stage, MTA uses a number of levels to ensure that children are learning and playing with others of a similar standard as well as age
The ‘modified’ approach is also ideal for high level 10 and under players. It develops better technical and tactical skills and enables kids to play and compete earlier.
