Hot Shots Tennis Academy is a local family owned business. The founder and managing director Rob Gurden has been coaching tennis at the highest levels for over 25 years running tennis academies, working with professional players as well as spending the last five years as a collegiate coach most recently at LMU.

Their focus is on developing a strong athletic base as well as building solid tennis technique from the ground up. They have a 5 -1 ratio of players to coaches and utilize music, games and prizes to create an enjoyable experience for everyone. No need to purchase a tennis racquet as they will provide one for your child along with all the necessary equipment to learn the game of tennis. If you’re looking for a great introduction to tennis check them out!

Classes are available at the following times:
Tuesdays 1:45-3:00pm
Tuesdays 4:00-5:00pm (Youth Pickleball – afterschool pick-up not offered)
Wednesdays 2:45-4:00pm

Hot Shots will pick up students at dismissal or from their afterschool care program. They will escort them to the tennis courts at Playa Vista Sports Park and check them back into their afterschool care program once the class has ended. If students are not enrolled in an afterschool program, parents may pick their child up directly from the Sports Park.

Enrollment is open throughout the school year and pricing is prorated.
