About Sporteka Tennis
Sporteka specialises in teaching Tennis to young beginners starting at the age of 3. We are a registered deliverer of Tennis Australia’s Tennis Hot Shots program and have been conducting our popular Kids Tennis program for over 20 years. Our qualified coaches work closely with Tennis Australia to ensure your child experiences world class tuition at your local indoor sports centre.
Tennis Hot Shots - Tennis Australia's kids starter program.
Using child-scaled equipment including low compression balls, smaller racquets and nets, children progress through three developmental stages: Red, Orange and Green. This gradual progression improves players skills and prepares them to play on a full-size court with a yellow ball.
