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.
