1st HOT SHOTS TOURNAMENT at Whangaparaoa Tennis Club !!! on Saturday 13th April

For HotShots Levels 7 to 8 years and 9 to 11 years

RED (7 to 8’s) & Daniel Moynihan (MVP) – 9am to 10:30am

ORANGE (9 to 11’s)
– 10:30am – 12pm

Hot Shots tournaments are ONLY matches with real rules:

  • Serve OVERARM in Diagonal
  • No Foot Fault
  • Be your OWN UMPIRE (calling LOUD the ball out AFTER the bounce and the score)
  • SPORTSMANSHIP COMPULSORY
  • Every players play the same number of matches

IMPORTANT THINGS:

” BRING A WRAPPED GIFT”

  • This first Hot Shot tournament is absolutely FREE in order to encourage kids to practice matches, leading one day to interclub matches and official tournaments.
  • Bring a WRAPPED gift ($5 max) for each kid entering the tournament cause they’ll pick one up at the end (It would be very sad that your kid can’t leave with one cause he/she didn’t bring one).
  • Please arrive 15min early as we will be starting the tournament promptly and once the draw is made, it can’t be changed.
  • NO PARENTS ALLOWED ON THE COURT AND NO TALKING THROUGH THE FENCE because kids don’t learn to deal with things on their own even if they are perfectly able to do it on their own, with their opponent. But positive support and applause is more than welcome, for both players. Anyway let them make mistakes because it’s the way to learn tennis: “Fail and Retry better” !!!

The club is greatly supporting this event to encourage the new young generation of tennis woman and tennis men, so I really hope to see you all this coming Saturday:

Thanks and see you Saturday
