We provide coaching lessons for children that focus on players learning the skills of tennis in a fun environment. Our programs are designed to teach all players how to play a competitive match and when ready players can be invited to participate in our selective & performance programs.
Tennis Hot Shots
The Tennis Hot Shots program is designed to have kids rapidly progress with key skills on the court, so they can learn to love the game of tennis at a young age. The program uses smaller courts, lighter racquets and low compression tennis balls that don’t bounce too high and move slower, making learning tennis fun, safe and easy for kids.
The learning through play philosophy encourages kids to have fun, gain tactical skills in tennis situations, improve their motor skills and build social skills. Tennis Hot Shots incorporates four progressive stages to help develop children’s skills and confidence at their own pace:
- Blue: Ages 3-5
- Red: Ages 5-8
- Orange: Ages 8-10
- Green: Ages 10-12
Most children aged 10 and under will have a lot of trouble covering a full-sized tennis court, resulting in shorter rallies and poor technique. By reducing the size of the tennis court, children are able to develop more realistic footwork patterns, better technique and experience rallies, making learning tennis more fun and achievable.
A great way to improve on the tennis court is to join a friendly and fun Hotshots competition. In these sessions children can practice their new skills and gain experience in matchplay in a safe and friendly environment.
Another way to improve quickly is to join a holiday tennis camp which provides a full day of tennis with professional and qualified coaches.
Around 10-15% of our Hotshots students who are showing the most amount of progress are invited into our Performance squads. These sessions are designed for players who would like to experience rapid progress and make tennis their number one sport.
The tennis hotshots program has a number of fantastic benefits for kids. They include:
- Developing fundamental motor skills such as agility, balance, coordination, striking, throwing, catching and running which will all improve their tennis greatly as well as compliment many other sports as well
- Improving social skills by spending time with other kids learning, competing and participating in team games and activities
- Develop self esteem and confidence through improvement and progression
- Increased discipline. Our fun classes have rules based around listening, applying 100% effort and being respectful to others and kids who step out of line will be disciplined appropriately
- Learning how to play the sport of tennis which is one of the only sports you can play for life. Once kids learn the basic tennis skills, they have those for the rest of their life.

The Voyager High Performance programs have provided my daughter Suri an environment where she can learn, develop and train among a like minded group of players. Thanks to the mentoring and squads provided by Voyager over the past two years she is now one of the top ranked juniors in Australia for her age group.
Parent of Suri Suchovsky #1 Australia
Both myself and my husband are completely new to tennis. We have relied on the strong support our son Max has received from Adam and the Voyager team. They have helped Max to achieve incredible results and after only one year and two months of playing tennis Max competed in his first Junior Tournament in Canberra. Max absolutely loves being part of the Voyager team.
Parent at Pennant Hills
Aimee started with Voyager in 2018 when she was seven and half. She has progressed through several squads. Due to the large number of good players across all age groups within the Voyager Academy, each squad has been a strong group. A high intensity training standard is maintained in all squads by different coaches who always put 100% effort in. High quality training is what we get from Voyager.
Parent of Top 10 NSW Player, Pennant Hills
My son Luke attends two yellow ball performance lessons per week at Voyager. On top of that he has been offered to do some assistant coaching three afternoons per week which has given him a huge boost in his self confidence. Luke has been enjoying his tennis more than ever and we cannot thank Max and Valerio and the rest of the Voyager team for all they have done for him.
Parent at Narraweena
Voyager has been coaching my two children with private lessons and performance squads. We have found the coaches to be extremely professional and they have both thoroughly enjoyed the environment of being continually challenged to improve within a safe space.
Parent at Seaforth
My daughter Tongni and son Ryan have played tennis with Voyager since 2019 taking group lessons two or three times a week. Tongni progressed from red ball hot shots to the top 20 in NSW for her age group. Ryan started when he was four and within two years of coaching is now one of the youngest orange selective players. I would highly recommend Voyager to parents who want their children to start a tennis journey.
Parent at Ryde
The Hotshots program run by Voyager has given my children Ollie, Asten and Aria a great amount of enjoyment with their tennis. I can see their self-confidence growing all the time as they continue to improve and most importantly, they have a huge amount of fun. The team at Voyager not only run fantastic tennis programmes but provide support to my children as important role models as they navigate their journey through life. Voyager is more than a tennis club, it is a place to feel safe, socialise and be surrounded by fantastic people. I highly recommend Voyager to anyone who is looking to fine-tune their tennis skills or become a part of a very special community.
