Hot Shots for kids 4-7 years

Tennis Hot Shots is the official Tennis Australia starter program for young players aged 4 to 7 years of age. By using smaller courts, racquets and low compression balls the program makes learning tennis easy for new players.

The Boroondara Tennis Centre runs a seven day a week comprehensive junior tennis program for children eight years of age and over. Our Junior Group Coaching lessons cater for junior players of standards ranging from total beginners, who may have never played before, to intermediate level and competition players, and serves as a stepping stone to our elite Tennis Academy program.

The Centre caters for the total beginner through to the advanced level player in the group coaching sessions and, therefore, those enrolled are grouped according to standard to maximise the learning potential of all concerned.

Under the guidance of a Boroondara Tennis Centre coach, each Cardio Tennis session includes a warm-up, cardio workout and cool-down phase. Designed to complement, rather than replace, your traditional tennis classes, Cardio Tennis offers a new way to get in shape and burn calories, in a fun, social atmosphere.

It’s a fun group activity, featuring drills and games to give players of all abilities the ultimate high-energy workout.

Family Challenge Starting February 2017

Starting Wednesday 1st Feb 2017
Mothers, sons, fathers, daughters, grandparents, cousins, aunts, in-laws...
Fun and families
Embracing participation and diversity
It’s about social tennis, not the scoresheet
This is not a Grand Slam

It’s all about bringing together diverse standards to promote participation and fitness. This competition is open to everyone who would like to participate in a competition that is not all about winning but promoting rallies and participation with very diverse standards.
This competition will not suit everyone.

Playing to the median standard is necessary to promote rallies. 
Drilling the net player, slamming winners, consistent aces and winning to love is not what this competition is based on.

•    Wednesdays 7-9 pm
•    2 player teams – emergencies from your family
•    3 x 6 game sets – sudden death at deuce
•    $16 per player per night 
•    Minimum age: 13 years
•    Maximum age: No limit – embracing ACTIVE AGEING!
•    Cost includes a coffee or slushie
