Sunshine Coast Coloured Ball Tournament Series – Now including Red Ball Events!

Your pathway from HotShots lessons to junior tournaments.

The Sunshine Coast B2B Coloured Ball Tournament Circuit is a series of coloured ball tennis tournaments across the Sunshine Coast designed to act as a stepping stone into match play and junior tournaments. Players are split into Red, Orange, and Green ball divisions based on their age and tennis ability and will then compete using a shortened scoring format and Hotshots sized courts.

A points race is kept throughout the year to determine who will earn their position on the Sunshine Coast Team. These players will compete against other regions at the BOLT 2 BRISBANE State Finals in Brisbane in November. More information on this as well as other Sunshine Coast representative opportunities can be found here!
