Hot Shots


Coaching at the Ashburton Trust Tennis Centre is aligned with the Tennis New Zealand's Hot Shots programme

Hot Shot lessons are designed for children of all abilities & those new to the game aged 5 yrs or older.

Hot Shots is played over lower nets across the court using small rackets and special tennis balls. Emphasis is on ball skills/rally situations & learning to serve overarm. 

Junior coaches are used to run the sessions.   All equipment is supplied, please ensure your child has suitable footwear and brings a sunhat and drink bottle. 

The aim is to have children of even abilities & skills together.

Parents please take a turn to assist with the set up and dismantling of the portable nets.
