What is Hotshots?

For years most sports have taught children the basics through the use of smaller or modified equipment and a reduced playing area. This approach helps children learn new skills faster and easier. It also means kids experience success early, which means there is a better chance that they will enjoy themselves and want to play again.
As of 1st January 2012 all 10 and under events must use low compression balls and modified courts.

The Red stage is for beginners. The red ball is larger than a yellow ball and doesn’t bounce as high (just 25 per cent compression), making it a breeze for even the youngest players to hit it comfortably. The courts and nets used in the Red stage are much smaller and easier for kids to move around.
