Love Tennis: A fun, free event for people of all ages who would like to try out or get back into tennis. Run annually.
Tennis Express: A programme catering for beginner adults taking a ‘serve, rally, score’ approach to learning. The programme is a fun, innovative way of teaching tennis which removes many of the barriers associated with learning the sport. Using low-pressure balls, and focusing on playing the game, adults build confidence as they receive simple technical and tactical advice adapted for each player’s needs.
Tennis Hot Shots Community Play: An affordable games based programme, designed to deliver an understanding of the skills required for playing tennis, using modified equipment and a supportive environment. The focus is on learning the fundamentals of tennis in a group environment. This gives players a chance to experience tennis before committing to membership or coaching programmes.
Tennis Hot Shots Coaching: Tennis Hot Shots is the national starter programme for ages 5 - 12 yrs. Using smaller courts, shorter racquets and softer balls means children can play a proper game of tennis from the moment they step on court. Sessions are made up of tactical, technical, fun and social elements which create developmental readiness in children.
Tennis Hot Shots Tournaments: Tournaments take place over the summer session at various clubs.
Junior Tournaments: The Junior Spring Open in September and Junior Summer Open in April, run by Nelson Bays Tennis. Click here to see the calendar of events.
Junior Interclub: A competitive league for various ages and abilities run by Nelson Bays Tennis.
