Hot Shots Tennis

From 1st January 2012 the Rules of Tennis as defined by the ITF changed and it is now mandatory for competition for players aged 10-and-under to be played with slower balls on smaller sized courts. The traditional yellow ball will no longer be permitted for 10-and-under competition. Tennis Australia has endorsed the ITF’s Tennis 10s rule change via the MLC Tennis Hot Shots program, which is fun, social and active and designed to keep kids interested in the game. The courts and racquets are smaller, the balls don’t bounce as high so they’re easier to hit and kids love it. Children progress through three stages – Red, Orange and Green – as their ability improves.
Court dimensions for hot shots tennis are available on the Hot Shots website.
