Junior Programs

Southend Tennis Centre provides programs for children and teenagers from 4 to 18 years of age, and caters for players of all levels of ability. Our Junior programs align with the Tennis Australia ANZ Hot Shots philosophy of “Learning Through Play” where children use modified courts and balls to develop their skills. The Blue, Red, Orange and Green stages offer a clear pathway for the progression of young players.

We also offer squads for Juniors (aged 12+) who currently compete at tournaments or participate in school tennis.
