In response to a recent post by Jon Wildman of Get Set 4 Tennis about one of his coaches, our next live interview for Tennis 24/7 is with Jon and Sam on their work with players with additional needs and disabilities.

In this interview we'll discuss:

- The background of Get Set 4 Tennis

- What is SEND and how the programme works

- Sam's preconceptions and concerns about working with players with disabilities and additional needs

- How many coaches feel about this type of work

- How coaching players with additional needs and impairments is different

- Their advice to coaches who have not done this type of work, or who would like to but have concerns

For tennis coaches working with junior tennis players, and parents of tennis players.

This live interview will be recorded for Tennis24/7.
