Tennis Coaching Holiday Program

The UQ Sport Kids Tennis holiday program is a unique opportunity for your child to learn new skills, improve technique and gain match play experience. Our tennis lessons are a great way to keep your child active over the school holidays and a way for them to make friends with other kids who play a similar standard of tennis.

The program is split into stages to make sure your child learns at their own pace and progresses to the next stage only when ready. The ages indicated below for each stage are only to be used as a rough guide until your child can be placed in the stage that is most suitable for them.

Your child will also get a Tennis Queensland membership when they take up tennis coaching with us.
