Benefits and Objective of our Friday Competition:

Our Competition is aimed at children who are beginning to play the sport and have developed an understanding of tennis through Hot Shots coaching, Community Play or at their local school.

Players have a chance to test their skills against similar level players and know what it feels like to be under scoreboard pressure and how to cope in low to moderate pressure environments that are also fun to play in.

The competition is a unique competition designed to give orange stage players the opportunity to gain valuable regular match play experience. The competition format is fun and innovative and provides a great platform for players socially as well as technically and tactically to fast track a orange Stage players development.

The Competition is a Singles Only competition, so it is simple to get involved. All balls court players are
eligible.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Meet Jordan the recent Slamin Tennis Player of the week!

“I’ve been teaching her for a few years now and am always impressed at her progression and how fast she can learn.

Always full of energy and smiles, I hope I can continue to teach her and continue seeing her grow/improve.” Good job, Abigail!

Every week, we will be posting the Slamin Tennis Player through our social media accounts.

The ‘Slamin Tennis Player of the Week’ is a recognition given to a player who has shown exceptional performance in a particular week.

The player could be someone who has been on a winning streak, achieved a milestone, or demonstrated exceptional sportsmanship on and off the court.

Moreover, it also motivates players to push themselves and improve their game. Knowing that their efforts and achievements are being recognized can serve as a confidence boost for players, urging them to strive for more success in the future.

ADULT CASUAL LESSON UPDATED PRICING

We know as adults we are super busy with life, and family commitments, at Slamin we get it. So we have now introduced as much flexibility as we possible can to enable adults to get on court.

We understand the need for flexibility for adults, and committing to an entire term can be challenging. Hence we have enable a casual booking system right through your customer portal.

All adult classes are able to be booked as a single date session, at a slightly higher rate.

We hope this will empower adult players to be able to get on court in any way they feel like.

Please see the new pricing below for Casual lesson:

If you are an adult who would like to try tennis, don’t be shy! Reach out for a FREE trial, we have many beginner groups, first time players, as well as those returning to the sport they played as a child. Tennis is a family sport for all ages, and with a few lessons, you will be rallying, and making new friendships and having some great banter and laughs along the way

Come and join the Slamin Tribe! All equipment including racquets are provided.

WINTER IS COMING

Winter is coming and it’s important to prepare yourself for the cold weather ahead. As the temperature starts to drop and the days become shorter, it’s time to start thinking about your winter wardrobe. Many people think that winter clothing is only about keeping warm, but it’s also about staying stylish and comfortable. So, it’s important to wear proper clothes during this season.

It’s important to dress appropriately for the activities you’ll be doing in the winter (e.gspray jacket, beanie, warm water in drink bottles etc).

If you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors, make sure to wear proper winter sports clothing, such as a waterproof jacket and pants, and insulated gloves. If you’re just running errands around town, a warm coat, scarf, and hat will suffice. Remember to always check the weather forecast before heading out and dress accordingly.

WINTER AND SUMMER TERMS

Sessions may from time to time be cancelled due to poor weather. Rain or extreme heat. An SMS cancellation message is automatically sent to the player’s nominated mobile to inform of the weather cancellation. If no SMS is received please assume lessons are running as normal.

Your tennis coach who is onsite at the venue has the ability to assess court surfaces and make decisions on lesson cancellations. Your Coach will inform you ASAP, but sometimes the rain will come as the lesson starts, or 5 minutes after the start of a lesson, so we do request understanding from parents when the weather is not so kind.

Sessions held on-site in a school environment have an undercover/indoor alternative (eg: school gym), all lessons due to rain will continue in the undercover/indoor area.

To stay on top of the latest weather updates, be sure to visit our page

A lesson and court status update will always be posted before school pick-up, to save busy parents time. As always in the event of a weather-related cancellation, your coach will send an sms cancellation to your designated mobile number.

We trust posting on our social media channels will hep busy parents save time.
