Getting the kids in to Tennis #TennisForKids

April 12, 2016 Off By Laura TMOT
Did you know that this summer the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) are offering a free tennis lessons programme for kids? The #TennisForKids campaign will help to encourage children to pick up a racket and give tennis a go.

 

The LTA have 1000 new tennis coaches across the country who will deliver the 6-week programme during May and June and make it even better each child who attends the courses gets a tennis racket to keep which will enable them to keep practising when the course finishes!

I used to enjoy tennis at school and as I lived down south at the time I even went to Wimbledon on a school trip but it is not a sport that my children have had much involvement in. When we were on holiday with Mark Warner last year they both did a small amount of tennis training as part of the kids club activities and they both said that they enjoyed it so as soon as I heard about these free lessons I knew I had to sign them up.
