Better Tennis endeavours to cater for everyone and their needs. Including Hot Shots, Private coaching, Group & Squad training and are very own version of Cardio Tennis, “FITennis”.

Comfortable enclosed sports shoes, a hat, water bottle and racquet. We have also have a fully stocked Pro Shop if you would like to buy or trial a demo racquet.

 

How are groups determined?

After initially being enrolled in a class suitable for their age and skill level, students will be assessed by their coach and may be moved to a group that is more appropriate to their standard.

What is the class size ratio?

Class sizes vary depending on the program. We believe it is important to have similar skill level across players within a group.  Class size ratios are listed below:

Program Average Class Size
Hot Shots  (30min) 4
Transitions to Competition (45 minutes) 5
Squad (60 or 90min class) 6
FITennis 5 per Coach
Private Lessons Max 2

Can parents watch?

Yes, parents are encouraged to watch, however we ask that parents do not enter the court unless requested by the coach.

Payment?

Invoices are emailed directly to you and are required to be paid after your first lesson.

Is there a joining fee?

No there is not a joining fee but students are encouraged to join the club to increase numbers and help the club thrive.

When should I start?

Our programs are designed to allow students to commence learning from any point within the program. Our focus is to ensure each student is grouped with players of a similar age and skill level.

 

What age?

Players can commence lessons from 4. We hold special 30 minute classes “Hot Shots Fundamentals” for players aged between 4 & 5 years.

Wet Weather

What happens if it rains?

We will do everything possible to run our programs as scheduled, however on occasion weather may force us to cancel.  Decisions to cancel lessons will generally not be made until immediately prior to the scheduled lesson commencement time.

Other Make-ups

We do require 24 Hour notice with lesson cancellations. Due to our strict class size requirements, we do not offer makeup classes for casual absence or sickness.  However if you are absent from class, and given proper notice students can attend a similar standard group to make up for absence. If unable to attend for an extended period of time i.e. more than 2 weeks, please contact us to make alternate arrangements.

We do not run tennis coaching on public holidays.  If you are enrolled in a class that falls on a public holiday, you will be not be charged for that lesson.
