Looking for kids tennis lessons?

Tennis is a fun game to keep your child fit and active, develop strength and coordination and build strong focus and concentration. Children as young as three can begin tennis lessons and it’s a game that can be played socially and competitively for life.

Kids in Brisbane can enrol in tennis at any time of the year with tennis centres offering coaching for all ages and levels of ability on a variety of hard, grass and synthetic courts, with some centres also offering school holiday tennis camps and private lessons. Scroll down for our handy alphabetical guide to Brisbane Tennis Centres and see our map to help you locate your nearest centre or club for junior tennis.

But first, what programs are on offer?


Hot Shots Minis is a program for children aged 3-5 years, designed to enhance a child’s fundamental motor skills. With parent participation, kids learn skills to develop balance, movement tracking, catching and striking before moving onto the Hot Shots Kids Tennis Program.


The Hot Shots Kids program introduces tennis skills to children aged 4-6 years and helps them develop social and interactive skills too. Children in the program will learn the tennis basics of serving and scoring. Parents are not required to participate.


The colour-coded squads build on your child’s learning and development to progress them through the tennis programs offered.

Red Squad is for children 5-7 years old, played on a small court, and introduces the technicalities of the game.

Orange Squad, for children aged 7-9 years, helps children learn to anticipate the game and develop greater control.

Green Squad, for children over 9 years, helps your child develop game strategies and builds on their decision making abilities.

Teen Squad (12-18 years) is for players both with limited experience and those aiming to be a competitive player. Players play in singles and doubles tennis games.

Squads also offer competitive matches for anyone who wants to gain more tennis experience.
