Vida Tennis Hotshots Challenge Day Events

Following on from your child playing in the ANZ Hotshots Match Play Events we have the Vida Tennis Hotshots Challenge Day Events!

The Vida Tennis Hotshots Challenge Day is an event held by Vida Tennis annually at one of the Vida Venues within Melbourne. There have been four Vida Hot Shots Challenge Days in the past and they have been hosted at MCC Glen Iris, Essendon, Altona and the Veneto club. Each venue has a specific colour which the players nominate to wear as their uniform and this unites everyone. The idea of the event is to connect all the Vida players from different venues and allow them to experience a team environment where they can represent their venue. The previous Challenge Days have featured over 100 players from all the tennis clubs participate in the event. The hosting venue will also provide a free sausage sizzle for the players and families. The matches are 6 game set formats but operates on time, so some matches may not play a full set.

Why play?

It’s a great way to connect with other players from different venues who you will be playing against or, in some cases, playing with. Additionally, everyone is able to enjoy a day of tennis, playing with friends and new people from your own club in an inclusive and fun competitive environment.

Where is it held?

The Challenge Day alternates each year from Vida venue to venue. Look out for exciting news about where the location for the next Vida Hotshots Challenge Days is being held in 2019!

How long does it run for?

This is an annual event held for one day.

Benefits of playing?

It is an opportunity to practice what you have been working on in your lessons and start to implement this into match play. You’re able to develop teamwork within your doubles pairs, but also support and encourage other teammates from the sideline.

How to pick the level or age group?

Players who train on the orange or green ball will be playing in their respective levels. Ages 7-10 years orange ball, ages 10-12 years green ball. Players will be placed into pools by the head coaches at each venue and then play players from opposing venues.

Who Plays?
