Hot Shots Stage

The Hot Shots Stage are integrated into the my Vida journey and are split into three stages: Red, Orange and Green. There is also an optional Launch Pad stage for young players aged between three and five-years-old. Children progress from one stage to the next when they are ready. This ensures that children learn at their pace and will ultimately make the transition to using a yellow ball on a full-size court when they are fully prepared.

The Launch Pad stage introduces children to tennis through games and fun activities. Children learn the basics of tennis including how to rally. This stage really help children develop their fundamental motor skills; throw, run, catch, jump and most importantly, tracking. There are a number of program options at this stage but its a great way for kids to stage tennis and have fun.
Court Size: various
Tennis Ball: Red Ball (25% compression)
Recommended Racquet Size: 19–23 inches
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.
Court Size: 3 m × 8.23 or 6 m × 10.97 m
Tennis Ball: red ball (25% compression)
Recommended Racquet Size: 21–23 inches
After mastering the Red stage, children move on to the Orange stage where the ball bounces a little higher (50 per cent compression) and the court is a bit bigger. Kids continue to develop their skills in a modified tennis environment while having a great time.
Court Size: 6.4 m × 18.29 m
Tennis Ball: Orange Ball (50% compression)
Recommended Racquet Size: 23–25 inches
The ball used in the Green stage has a higher compression (75 per cent of a yellow tennis ball) and children play on a full-size court.

Court Size: 10.97 m × 23.78 m (full court)
Tennis Ball: Green Ball (75% compression)
Recommended Racquet Size: 25–27 inches
The Yellow Stage is not an official stage in the Hot Shots Program but it marks the time when a child is ready to play on full size courts with the normal yellow tennis ball.
