Tennis Hot Shots is primary tennis played on smaller format courts ideal for kids aged 5-10. It uses simpler scoring, low compression balls and much faster games than conventional tennis.
Tennis Hot Shots Red is played on ¼ sized courts suiting kids aged 5-8.
Tennis Hot Shots Orange is played on ¾ sized courts suiting kids aged 7-10.
Tennis Hot Shots Green is played on full sized courts suiting kids aged 9-12.
Many clubs offer Tennis Hot Shots coaching and some offer matchplay sessions. Tennis Canterbury runs Summer match play in both red and orange formats, runs one-off events (participation focused tournaments) and coordinates a summer calendar of club-based events.
In Canterbury, 10U age group tennis uses the green format for interclub and tournaments.
