Tennis Hot Shots Community Play
Designed to encourage kids of primary school age to play tennis in a fun supportive environment. The focus is on kids enjoying playing the game of tennis with friends and being a good sport. Parents, guardians and club volunteers are encouraged to help out on-court. To promote a sense of fun and achievement, kids use modified equipment scaled especially for them. This means smaller courts, racquets, nets and low compression tennis balls.

We are looking for any beginner or intermediate players who are interested in playing in the Waihopai teams in the Jnr Interclub competition with the Western Association in Term 1 2019. Games are played on Saturday mornings in either Invercargill or Otautau and car pooling is arranged for when we play out of town. Those who played last season had a great time and enjoyed their first experience playing in a tennis team, learning how to score etc. More teams in this competition will make for even more fun.
