“Alice is a new Red Stage Hot Shots player and is the sweetest child. Good on you Alice, for being the legend you are.” Good job, Alice!

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.

Your child could be the next Slamin Player of the week; follow our social media accounts to see who will be the next superstar!

During extreme heat it is easy to become dehydrated or for your body to overheat. Here are some tips during the extreme heat:

  • Keep cool: use air conditioning or a fan, wear light and loose-fitting clothing, and keep skin wet, using a spray bottle or damp sponge and by taking cool showers.
  • Stay hydrated: during days of extreme heat, keep drinking water before you feel thirsty, especially if outdoors or performing physical activity.
  • Check in with others. Let family, friends and neighbours know you are OK or check in with those at increased risk or who may need your support during days of extreme heat.
  • Monitor the weather forecast and the Bureau of Meteorology Heatwave warnings online or via the Bureau’s app.


School Holidays:


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:

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.

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.
