Our Approach

Real tennis is taught right from the beginning with the modified Wilson PeeWee tennis. The children then progress to bigger courts continuing to learn in a modified environment with our ANZ Hot Shots Red, Orange and Green ball programs. (Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters are products of these innovative midi-courts).

Student confidence is increased by creating a realistic environment according to the child’s size and playing ability. The lessons have been carefully thought out and designed in accordance with the most up to date international coaching methods to incorporate lots of fun, variety and games which accommodate real tennis (rallying and points) to be played as early as possible.

We prepare players for a lifetime of fun playing tennis at tournament, club or social levels.
