What Program Can I Do?
Hot Shots Group Lessons
The Vida Tennis Group Hot Shots kids tennis lessons are run in a fun, enthusiastic environment with emphasis on developing the fundamental motor skills for tennis and everyday life. All children in group Hot Shots lessons will be guided by the My Vida Journey program which Vida Tennis have designed to help children through the learning tennis process. The program highlights the tennis pathway, and kids receive certificates along the way to mark their achievements. Once completed they can then take their “next steps” into competition, squads and more. There are two areas of the with the my Vida journey; Head Start Program and the my Progress Program. Group sessions are energetic, high participation, with small class sizes to creating a great environment to fast track learning and individual development. As the players progress the emphasis is placed on tactical and technique awareness. Players will be placed in groups of similar age and standard and a racquet can be provided for the session if required.
Individual private tennis lessons are coaches by qualified experience staff and session encompass all facets of the modern game. The four key areas of development are the primary focus; technical, tactical, mental and movement. Video analysis is a key component in private tennis lessons and there are different length lessons available (30, 60, 90 minutes) depending on the individual.
The Tech / Rep private program is Vida's number one program in technical development amongst juniors. Technique and Repetition are combined in a monitored environment to maximize improvement from a closed skill situation to an open skill. The program also helps the player understand how to best link technique development with tactical awareness. The program operates across three or four courts with an assigned coach on each court, whilst a Head Coach (floating) structures and monitors the progressions. This program is designed to fast track skill development. The Head Coach constantly gives video feedback to the individual and then the message is re-enforced by the assigned coach on the court. The program is essentially a private lesson with the added benefit on the floating head coach and video analysis. There are various length sessions and the program is available at the majority of Vida venues daily.
Vida Tennis has a range of Squad sessions to cater for all ages and levels. Squad sessions primary role is to focus on tactical awareness, decision making, routines, set plays, mental application and fitness. There are sessions available most nights at each venue and run for various lengths depending on the age and standard. Sessions are group’s accord into to standard to maximize each player’s development and often feature live ball hitting partners eg. High level pennant players. Squads start at 60 minutes in length and use the Green Ball at all venues. Development and High performance squads are also available.
Ladies, Adult & Cardio Session
Ladies Programs are held at all venues on various days and is suitable for those wishing to improve their tennis skills and fitness levels in a high energy, fun, energetic environment. The program is suitable for both the competition or non-competition player. The ladies program is a great way to continue the “game for life” with friends.
Sessions are generally 60 minutes in length.
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. Your Cardio coach or fitness trainer can cater activities to all fitness levels and tennis. Cardio Tennis burns calories, has endless activities and you have social workouts with friends. We will have you feeling great and back in shape in no time at all.
When it comes to calories, it’s simple: burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight and feel great. In the modern time-poor world, it can be hard to keep fit, let alone find a program that is fun and energising.
Your Tennis Pathway
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome. Tennis does not have a clear pathway to achieve many aspiring tennis players’ goals. Weather your goal is the world stage or personal best, the Vida Pathways will give you an idea of where you currently are in your tennis life and where some of the directions can lead you. It also shows new families getting started into tennis where to start and how to get involved in the “game for life.

What people are saying
Angelo has been a great coach who has taught Adrian from age 10 through to age 16 (currently). Quite simply Adrian says Angelo is a really good coach and a top bloke as well. From my point of view Vida provides top quality coaches who teach children of all ages and levels to enjoy the game of tennis.

Each year I come to Australia for the Australian Open and get the chance to catch up with Kane. In the 2013 Australian Open they brought the students to watch some matches during the Australian Open and filled half the stand during my match, it was great to play in front of them.
