A World Class Starter Program for Kids

New Zealand Post Tennis Hot Shots (NZPTHS) is the national starter tennis programme for New Zealand children. With almost 200 venues nationwide, it's easy to start playing!

New Zealand Post Tennis Hot Shots is just for kids.  Smaller courts, shorter racquets and softer balls mean that kids can play a proper game of tennis from the moment they step on court.

Kohimarama tennis Club use the Hot Shots principals for much of its coaching with very young children. in addition each term a 6 week Community Play programme is offered at the special rate of $7 per child per session or $30 per 6 week course when paid in advance.

The Hot Shots programme welcomes parent help with the sessions, this is a highly subsidised course which is designed as an introduction for younger children to the game of tennis. Parents your help with feeding balls, collecting balls etc is much appreciated by the coach.

Cardio Tennis is a fun,social, group tennis-fitness program for people of all ages and abilities. It is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best features of the sport of tennis with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate, full body, calorie burning aerobic workout (The NZ Herald predicts it will be one of 2015's hottest fitness trends).

In a 60-minute Cardio Tennis workout, women can burn up to 500 calories per workout and men up to 800. If you do regular Cardio Tennis workouts, you’ll feel better and your hand-eye coordination, tennis skill and fitness level will also benefit. 

Participants wear heart rate monitors, exercise to music, use Cardio Tennis balls and a variety of equipment, including agility ladders. The workout is comprised of a warm-up, cardio segment (drill-based and play-based activities) and a cool down.

Other key elements include:

  • Participants consistently elevate their heart rates into their aerobic training zone
  • Participants can burn more calories than singles or doubles tennis
  • Cardio Tennis is similar to interval training which is periods of high intensity followed by short periods of rest. Interval training is the best way to train for optimal health and fitness
  • While participants are playing tennis, their focus is primarily on getting a great workout
    Improve your tennis skills
  • The best thing about Cardio Tennis is that you do not have to be good at tennis to get involved. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you’ve never played before.
