New blended Lines supports ANZ Tennis Hot Shots programs
Tennis SA has recently closed an expression of interest for tennis clubs to install the Blended Lines to support their ANZ Tennis Hot Shots programs. Successful applicants received a 75% discount for the cost of the Blended Lines thanks to the support of the Tennis Australia National Court rebate program.
To make the best use of space, and provide flexibility at a minimal cost, Blended Lines are installed on regular full size tennis courts painted with a shade of line paint that is lighter or darker, but of the same family, as the tennis court surface.
Tennis SA’s General Manager – Venue and Government Relations, Brett Hidson advised "the introduction of Blended Lines onto an additional 61 courts in 15 venues will further encourage children to enjoy the ANZ Tennis Hots Shots program at their local clubs.
“To the children, they feel like they are playing on a real court. And the deliverers enjoy less time in setting and packing up with the permanent Blended Lines acting as reference points for their delivery."
The Blended Lines were installed during the autumn of 2019 to maximise the optimum weather conditions conducive for installing acrylic on tennis courts.
The ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program is Tennis Australia’s tennis program where children learn the moves with lighter racquets, smaller courts and less bouncy balls!
Delivered by qualified tennis coaches, trained teachers in schools or eager tennis club volunteers, ANZTHS gives children the confidence to learn and play like their heroes within a suitable environment. The modified equipment, rules and sessions makes it much easier to begin learning their tennis techniques, and have fun doing it!
