Welcome back to Tennis World! Let’s get hitting.

With the arrival of Term 4, the temperatures are rising, and so is our excitement for all things tennis! In this edition of the Tennis World Canberra newsletter, we announce The Community Tennis Day, Tennis League Final Updates, and much more!


This FREE community event will be the place to check out and experience what the Summer of Tennis has in store, and officially launch the Canberra International 2024. This event will be action-packed, with something for everyone. Kids will have fun in free Tennis Hot Shots classes by Tennis World Canberra, ballkid activities, roaming characters, face painting and glitter tattoos. There will be plenty of activities for the adults, including Cardio Tennis classes, or your chance to try out Pop Tennis. Off court there will be a range of food options available, tunes from a local DJ, free seated massages from CBR Massage, or grab a photo with the Australian Open trophies. The first 200 kids aged 12 or under through the gates will receive a free tennis racquet! The event is open to all ages, genders and abilities. No tennis experience is required, simply turn up and get ready to have a great time. This is a FREE community event. In the event of wet weather the event will be moved indoors at the Canberra Tennis Centre.


Our Holiday Camps triumphed once again, hosting over 140 Hot Shots players, each embarking on a journey of skill enhancement and memory-making on the courts! Under the leadership of Head Coach Gonzalo, the High-Performance camp garnered a total of 79 bookings across four vibrant days. Selection was meticulously based on player performance, commitment, and attitude throughout the term. Participants fiercely competed in numerous UTR matches while notably advancing their strength and conditioning
