All pupils in the Suncoast Tennis Academy are able to participate free of charge in a Hot Shots competition each Friday afternoon during the school term at the Nambour Tennis Club. There are also Junior Fixtures for more experienced players conducted on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

Teddy Tennis at Suncoast Little Learners

Teddy Tennis inspires ages 3 – 6 years to become active and learn to play tennis. It works by combining music, pictures and teddy bear stories. Teddy Tennis is not only fun to do but it will enhance their coordination, grow their confidence and encourage them to get active. The classes are held during school hours in an undercover area under the supervision of the ‘Head Ted Tennis Coach’. More information visit:
