Aces Development Programme

Our Aces programme is catered for players aged 5-10 who are showing an enjoyment/talent for tennis through the Club Hotshots system. Players are invited to join this programme and split into the three stages; red ball, orange ball and green-dot ball.


Each class has 4-6 players with 1 “senior” coach which allows us the opportunity for each individual to get more attention with their coach and time hitting balls; which in turn speeds up the learning process and development of each player.


This programme does not only include group sessions, players will also receive ‘private lessons’ throughout the term. This is a great opportunity to go more in-depth with any technical work-ons each individual may have. 


Our Aces programme is an essential part of our player development structure and has proven to be successful in recent years, with four players (aged 9-11) currently ranked inside the top 10 in New Zealand.

mini net and 25% compression balls which are slightly larger than the standard size
