Red Stage

6 - 8 year olds
21’ - 23’ Racquet

Our Tennis Hot Shots Red stage is the next progression from our Blue Stage program and is generally aimed at 6– 8 year olds. The red ball is larger than a yellow ball and doesn’t bounce as high (as it’s 25% compression of the yellow ball), making it a breeze for even the youngest players to hit it comfortably. While the courts and nets used in the red stage are much smaller and easier for kids to move around.

Orange Stage

8 - 10 year olds
23’ - 25’ Racquet

Our Tennis Hot Shots Orange stage (aimed at 8-10 year olds) is the third stage of our Hot Shots program and sees the kids now play with full-size tennis balls which are 50% compression. Their court dimensions are a 3/4 length tennis court with the Singles Lines becoming the sidelines. The players focus on developing technique, their ability to rally, further coordination, concentration, group interaction, and confidence.

23’ - 25’ Racquet

Green Stage

Our Tennis Hot Shots Green stage (aimed at 10-12 year olds) is the final stage of our Hot Shots program where the kids play with tennis balls which are 75% compression and a full-size court. The players consolidate technique and swing patterns, work on strategy, develop physical skills and discover the game, rules and type of competition.
