Junior Tennis Coaching

Our junior coaching programme can cater for any age or ability, from a complete beginner through to national competitor. We ensure that every child can achieve their full potential.  


Our programme allows our players to fit into the correct group based on ability, whilst it also maintains the flexibility to move players through the various levels as and when they begin to progress.  We are also Tennis New Zealand Hot Shots coaches, so for the younger players we make sure that they are playing with the correct sized racquets, balls and nets.


All tennis session at Papatoetoe Tennis Club are funded by Kolmar.


Term 4: Friday 11th November - Friday 16th December (6 weeks)



  Session  Time/Day
Our Red Kiwi sessions are where it all begins! These squads are for children aged 4-8 years old and here they will learn all of the basic shots as well as the rules of the game.
We use red compression tennis balls and smaller tennis racquets so the kids can develop the correct technique and can learn to enjoy the game through playing it.

Friday: 4:00 to 4:45 pm

Orange Kiwis are for children 8-10 years old. These kiwis know the basic shots, lines on the court and how to score a game but to a basic level.
They use an orange compression tennis ball and smaller court so that we can begin to build a strong foundation for them to develop.

Friday: 4:45 to 5:30 pm

Green Kiwis are for children aged 9+ years. In these squads they continue their development from the Kiwi Orange sessions, but the fundamentals that we instill are more advanced.
The children are using a green compression tennis ball, which allows them to structure their points whilst keeping their technique.

Friday: 5:30 to 6:30 pm
