Tennis Hot Shots

Hot Shots is the national starter tennis programme for children. Smaller courts, shorter racquets, and softer balls mean that kids can play a proper game of tennis from the moment they first step onto the court.

After school classes for the Blue, Red, Orange, and Green stages of Hot Shots are available on various days of the week at Cockle Bay Tennis Club, Maraetai Tennis Club or Manukau Tennis Centre. Our school holiday programmes throughout the year also cater for children 5-years and older.
