Private Lessons

Private coaching sessions can be arranged at a time that suits you, or for a more social option, we have group coaching available for adults and children. With classes catering for all levels of experience from beginners to squad and tournament players, group coaching classes provide a perfect opportunity to develop your skills whilst getting to know some fellow tennis enthusiasts.


Junior Coaching


Tennis has never been this much fun!

MLC Tennis Hot Shots is just for kids. Children learn to play on the right size court using racquets that are perfect for small hands and balls that don’t bounce too high.
And they can play anywhere. Children can enjoy MLC Tennis Hot Shots with their friends or family at home, school and at their local tennis club – all you need is a flat surface.

You can find MLCTHS at more than 1000 venues or tennis centres around Australia. New programs begin each school term with sessions lasting for 30–60 minutes depending on the children’s level and as kids progress through each stage their confidence grows along with their skills as they master each ball and court.

With MLC Tennis Hot Shots, kids learn to play tennis the right way and develop at their own pace. Developed by Tennis Australia, MLC Tennis Hot Shots is the perfect fit for kids.

Cardio Tennis


Ditch the treadmill, grab your racquet and get your heart pumping with Cardio Tennis!
Cardio Tennis is Tennis Australia’s brand new group tennis and fitness class where the emphasis is less on tennis technique and more about getting a great cardio workout, so it’s perfect for people of any age or skill level. While Cardio Tennis still incorporates many tennis drills and activities, it’s the combination of these drills with cardio bursts and aerobic exercise that gives participants a fantastic all-round cardio workout.

Set to high-energy music, Cardio Tennis also incorporates the use of heart rate monitors and regular heart rate checks to ensure participants are maintaining a heart rate in their ideal zone and are enjoying maximum fitness benefits from the class.
Cardio Tennis is truly the next big thing in group fitness and is sure to be just as rewarding and much more enjoyable than a regular gym workout. Sessions run in nine week blocks for one hour each week.
