ActivityBook proudly presents Tennis Gear's Red Ball ANZ Hotshots program run out of St Paul's School Bald Hills. Our Red Ball program has no minimum playing standard required to become involved! As our player’s progress and improve their skill they will start to achieve the playing standards needed to move up through the classes and levels right up to our Red Ball Squad’s! There’s no rush though – Red Baller’s can spend up to 3 years refining their technique on the smaller courts and developing their games right through to squad level!
This is our entry-level class for Red-Ballers and is perfect for first-time players or children who have only just started a few lessons or games of tennis. Our players will focus on developing all of the fundamental skills of tennis including rallying, serving, coming to the net and scoring as well as competing. By week 8 of the term children will take part in our Rally Awards day which will measure their progress in the areas of: Rally, Serve, Come to the Net, Score and Compete. These foundations will give them the opportunity to progress into the next level of Red Ball Hot Shots.
Red Hot Shots players progress through different levels by acquiring the basic new skills and taking part in our exercises. There are four levels in Mini Red: Red 5, Red 10, Red 15 (squad only), Red 20 (squad only)
Within each of the four levels, Red Hot Shots players learn and are tested on four important skills:
Rally – Learning and developing rallying skill
Serve – Learning and developing serving skills
Come to the net – Learning and developing movement forwards and volleying
Score and Compete – Learning the rules, how to score, how to compete and fair play
The Red stage is for beginners. The red ball is larger than a yellow ball and doesn’t bounce as high (just 25 per cent compression), making it a breeze for even the youngest players to hit it comfortably. The courts and nets used in the Red stage are much smaller and easier for kids to move around.
Recommended racquet size for red: 21–23 inches
