Who is it for?

This course is designed specifically for 5-8 year olds who are new to tennis. We hope the lucky 10,000 kids will have had such a great time they'll be hooked on tennis for life!

What your kids will learn

Kids will learn all the essentials to allow them to have a great time playing tennis.

Throughout the 6 week course kids will learn and practice:

  • Throwing and catching
  • How to hold a racket and control the ball
  • All the different shots
  • How to develop a rally, hitting the ball over a net with new friends
  • Being part of a team and respecting one another
  • The rules of tennis and how points are won and lost

But most importantly, they will have lots of fun and meet some new friends!

A The venue you attend will have an offer available to help all kids involved to continue to play.
