We are constantly being reminded of the health benefits of children taking part in physical activity, but we know children also like to do things that are fun. 1st Class Tennis provides everything for your school to allow your children to take part in fun and active tennis sessions. As our focus is on schools, we are able to offer bespoke packages which will suit any school, regardless of its sports facilities and timetable.
The termly programme could include a before school cardio tennis session and/or tennis inspired PE lessons? Maybe an after school club?
All of our coaches are experienced LTA qualified coaches, with a passion for getting kids active in the safe environment of their school. Why not email us today, and we can contact your school?
“As a working mum of four, it’s a constant nightmare getting to clubs after school, not to mention the financial burden of club membership fees. Katy and Callum have been coaching at my school for a number of years, and despite the fact that we don’t have full tennis facilities, my kids always come home fired up about tennis, looking forward to their next session.”
Nancy Lengthorn, Scotts Park Primary School
There are numerous transferable skills, health benefits and positive personality traits that can be developed through tennis: agility, balance, co-ordination, social skills, team work, tactical thinking, self-control, confidence, determination, and of course physical fitness. Our sessions test and develop these skills, allowing them to flourish in a fun environment, whether on court, or in a suitable alternative space, such as a playground or school hall.
We’re very aware that many children never have the opportunity to experience tennis or progress to the next level with the sport, as the barriers to the game are too great.
Logistically and financially, we believe tennis should work for all, hence our mission to introduce regular tennis within the school environment.
