Playing tennis at Eastern Golf Club


ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Coaching

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is a program designed to help every child – no matter their age or ability – to jump in and start learning to play tennis. ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is played on smaller courts with modified equipment including lighter racquets, lower nets and low compression balls that don’t bounce too high.

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Match Play

Tennis matches for kids! Match Play is a fun and social way for kids to get into team tennis and is played at both Orange Ball and Green Ball level. Kids who become involved in Match Play will learn the basics of game play, as well as scoring.

Match Play teams are made up of both boys and girls with two or more players per team. Match Play seasons are generally aligned with the school term and run for six to eight weeks.

  • Red Stage (6–8 years)
  • Orange Stage (8–9 years)
  • Green Stage (9–12 years)

Encouraging more girls to play tennis is a key objective of The Eastern Golf Tennis Club and Gripping Potential. Miss-Hits is the brain-child of Judy Murray and has been created to introduce 5-8 year old girls who’ve never played tennis before in an all-girl environment that is lively, fun and colourful.  Girls can develop their coordination, get to know all the strokes and learn about the game through the Miss-Hits characters.

Every session is based around a Miss-Hits character, with each teaching their own signature tennis shot, along with tips, tricks, games and dance routines – all in a fun and friendly environment.

The girls will make friends, gain new skills, build their confidence, be girly and most of all, have lots of fun. Whether they are a sporting natural, or have never held a racquet, the session plans are suitable for all levels.

Sport Psychologists and other specialist coaches are invited when the schedule permits each and every term.
