More than 50 children took part in the Grandslam Tour: ANZ Hot Shots and Cardio Tennis at the Toolamba Recreation Reserve on Friday afternoon.

The free tennis coaching for school-aged children is part of the Greater Shepparton City Council’s Activities in the Park and has support from Tennis Victoria, which visit a range of tennis courts across the district.

Dhurringile Tennis Club’s Lisa Niglia said the partnership between council and Tennis Victoria was a great way to get children playing and learning the basics of the game.

The ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is a development tennis program for primary school aged-children, with the use of modified tennis courts, nets, racquets and balls.

These sessions are an introduction to community play in a fun and supportive environment.

The older children took part in the Cardio Tennis program.
