Adrenalin Tennis step-by-step Junior Development Program, is based on Tennis Australia's ANZ Hot Shots program which focuses on taking students from beginner level through to advanced training.

Levels 1 to 3 (Red, Orange and Green Ball) of the Junior Development Program uses modified tennis equipment to allow children (4 years plus) to develop their skills in a fun, safe and structured environment. As your child progresses through the various levels so does the ball type and court size, making for a fun and motivating tennis experience.

LEVEL 1: RED BALL 

30 Minute Class (4 players per coach)

60 Minute Class (6 players per coach)

Red Ball is a fun introduction to tennis, with classes incorporating gross motor movement, balance and hand-eye coordination skills. The basics of grips and stroke production are introduced in a fun and rewarding environment. Children use 25% compression red balls that bounce lower, slower and are much easier to hit.

LEVEL 2: ORANGE BALL 

1 Hour Class (6 players per coach)

This level follows on from the successful completion of Red Ball Tennis and is a skill acquisition level for the developing player.  Players use 50 per cent compression orange balls and concentrate on stroke development, serving techniques, use of spin, rallying, scoring and the basics of match play.

LEVEL 4: YELLOW BALL 

1 Hour Classes (6 Players Per Coach)
