Feeling Good Project
Having good mental health is vital!
GTC has set up a new project to offer two-hour sessions to help support good mental health.
5 years ago we had support from the Lincolnshire Community Foundation to set up a weekly fun social tennis activity session called "Active at 60". Over 30 people - many of whom had never played any tennis before - gave it a try and everyone enjoyed it immensely. It was so successful that a lot of the participant kept it up, others joined and our Thursday "Active" sessions continue to offer a great chance to have a regular sociable game suitable for everyone's level of skill and personal fitness.
Earlier this year we saw the Mental Health Trust for Lincolnshire was offering financial help for new ideas in the community to support good mental health and we knew we could offer something very positive for adults in the Grantham / Sleaford areas.
So in consultation with GP colleagues and with the local mental health teams we have put together a programme of fun, social tennis skilled activities that can be enjoyed by absolutely anyone - and especially if you have been feeling a bit down or isolated and will welcome a light-hearted chance to get some exercise alongside other people. Somewhere new, make friends, feel good, have two hours of fun physical activity.
A fun, two hour Wednesday morning session.
A great welcome and sense of group belonging.
A variety of light-hearted but purposeful activities on the outdoor or indoor courts.
Support and encouragement from club volunteers.
All equipment provided.
A mid-morning social break with refreshments - invite a friend or family member if you want.
Developing skills at your own pace.
Above all, feeling good about taking part with others, about getting exercise and about yourself!
If you have any questions or want to take part one week, give reception a call.
