Glendowie Tennis Club, 18 Forfar Road, Glendowie
Hi! My name is Will and I’m the Tournament Coordinator at Kiwi Tennis. I am excited to announce after the success of our last Hotshots event during the Queen’s Birthday Open that we have decided to run termly Hotshots events. Our first event will be run at Glendowie Tennis Club, and players from all clubs across Auckland are welcome.
You may have a few questions, so take a look below!
WHAT TIME ARE THE MATCHES?
Red Kiwis (8.30am-9.45am)
Orange Kiwis (9.45am-11.15am)
Green Kiwis (11.15-12.45pm)
WHY SHOULD MY CHILD PLAY IN THIS EVENT?
This is a fantastic end to the term, especially if you participate in our Kiwi Tennis club hot shot programmes (red, orange and green). Matchplay is the key to improving a child’s technique, confidence and mindset in tennis. You do not have to be a professional to play a match!
HOW OLD DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BE?
We have 3 different age categories
- Red (aged 5-8yrs), played over a small red net with a marked out mini court.
- Orange (8-10yrs), played over the main net but marked out 3/4 court size.
- Green (10-12yrs), played over the main net and full court.
WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY A MATCH OR SERVE OVER-ARM?
This is a key part to our curriculum in Kiwi Tennis so at the end of your course your child will know how to do basic table tennis style scoring (1,2,3,4 etc) and serve either overarm (green and orange) or underarm (red) to the correct side of the court. Each match will be supervised and scored on paper by our Kiwi Tennis assistant coaches, therefore your child will have nothing to worry about except turning up and having fun!
HOW DO I BOOK?
Bookings need to be made online at tnz.tournamentsoftware.com. Search for Kiwi Tennis under tournaments and enter your child into the appropriate level.
I STILL DON'T KNOW WHICH CATEGORY MY CHILD SHOULD PLAY IN.
The best thing to do is ask your group coach, or simply email me at William@kiwitennis.co.nz and I will happily make a recommendation. It is usually better to stick to the age category, but we understand there are some discrepancies!
