See below for age group and class information.

Following the Tennis Australia Hotshots Pathway – featuring Red, Orange, Green and Yellow ball levels explained below – modified balls and equipment are used to provide the highest quality coaching for all levels and ages. Additionally, each group class has a unique tennis lesson plan tailored by Coach Will, with a different one for each week of the year. We use a Young Aces Tennis Passport to monitor a specific set of competencies that need to be met before a player can proceed to the next colour tennis ball.  Students are constantly monitored and assessed throughout each term to ensure they are in the most suitable class so that they feel challenged.
