Primary Schools Teachers Course

The three-hour ‘Primary School Teacher Training Course’ has been developed to give non-PE specialist teachers the confidence and tools to deliver tennis to a class of children in a small space. The course demonstrates how, with smaller courts, nets and rackets and lower bouncing balls, mini tennis can offer the perfect introduction to the sport, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.
