This programme has been successfully used worldwide. It is the easiest way to play tennis. The balls bounce lower and slower so they are easier to hit and the courts are smaller. This means that players are able to start rallying and have fun right from the first lesson, just as they do in other sports. Most Hot Shots programmes are offered at school and through community club play pathways. These programmes feed into the Capital Coaching Academies offered at our Club locations.
