What are the benefits of your child playing?
It is a great opportunity for Hot Shots kids to learn and develop their knowledge of tennis rules and become competent in keeping their own match score as they play. This is a fantastic opportunity that helps to fast-track teamwork skills, general game skills including serving and rallying and develop good sportsmanship skills.
