What are hot shot tennis rules? 

The rules of hot shots tennis are simple. There are no set rules that must be followed for kids playing tennis at 10 years or under. We have tailored scoring systems and we also teach kids how to score too. As kids progress, their ability to score their own matches will improve. Other ANZ hot shot rules include:

  • Smaller courts and rackets

  • There are different sized balls depending on the age of the kids. The balls don't bounce as high so they're simpler to hit, so kids love it.

  • Find more information on what ball size would be appropriate for your kid below

What are the hot shot tennis equipment used?

We supply Hot Shot tennis nets, balls and rackets for your kid's tennis coaching lessons. Sometimes we will use other sporting equipment such as cones and buckets to give your kids variety. 

We recommended that kids wear snug sport clothes, runners, a hat, sunscreen and bring a bottle of water with them. If you don't have a tennis racket, don't worry, we provide the tennis rackets for you too. If you wish to purchase a racket, we are more than happy to provide advice on finding the best tennis racket for you and your kid. 

As a rule of thumb, the tennis grip shouldn't be too big and make sure your kid can hold their racket easily when their arm is held straight in front of them. This will ensure they can swing the racket with ease. When in doubt choose a smaller racket!
