InStyle Tennis Hot Shots Challenges
The ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Challenge Events are designed to complement the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots weekly coaching and/or competition program. Challenge events provide young players with a first tournament experience in a positive, friendly club environment.
Kids can enter 1 of 3 events- 8 (red), 10 (orange) or 12 (green) & under singles. A coach coordinates each event and mentor’s kids with playing format, how to score & good sportsmanship. Please note that despite the winners being recognised, the purpose of these events is to ‘have a go’ and experience the fun in playing friendly competition. All players receive a prize, and all players play the same number of games which maximises court time and facilitates improvement.
Playing Hot Shots Challenges are an integral part of the development of the budding player, and are usually held once or twice per term. So tell your friends and start getting ready for the next one!
