How it all started!!

At Hot Hits Tennis we have a vision to bring tennis back to Lithgow in a fun filled way to see the tennis courts full of young aspiring tennis players, learning new skills in a fun social environment. Hot Hits Tennis first commenced coaching programs in Autumn 2013 with a total of 30 Juniors for our first term..

Within 5 years we have in excess of 110 Junior Tennis players attending coaching sessions on a Tuesday afternoon. We have many adults enjoying FMT (Cardio Tennis) on a regular basis who haven’t had the opportunity to join in on the tennis courts for many varied reasons and many juniors now enjoying the benefits of private lessons to enhance their technique and skill. Over the past 5 years we have had the opportunity to deliver tennis programs to over 1000 school students in the local district. It is very exciting to see so many juniors and adults on the courts again learning the skills they will use for a lifetime.

Where to from now!!

We are now in the position to introduce Tennis leagues this summer for the first time in many years at the Lithgow Tennis Courts. We are very passionate about tennis offering the perfect setting to enjoy sport, keep fit, and socialise. Hot Hits Tennis caters for players of all ages and standards. Whether you’re new to the game, keen to get back into it after a break or someone who takes their tennis a little more seriously, we have something for you. We offer a varied range of programs for both kids and adults from our experienced and qualified team. We strive for the highest level of Customer Service ensuring everyone is catered for. We are working towards making Tennis the number one summer sport in Lithgow. We know it is hard work but we are very committed and want to to see the tennis courts full of youngsters every day!!
So what are you waiting for….
