tennis club invites children to free six-week course
Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) has just launched its nationwide 2017
initiative to introduce 5-8 year olds to the game of tennis and
Burnham-On-Sea's Avenue Tennis Club has been chosen as one of the
clubs taking part.
children nationally will be involved in this grassroots initiative
with 60 youngsters from the Burnham-On-Sea area invited to join
a free six-week course.
course is aimed at children who have never played tennis before,
focusing on fun and getting kids active, combining hand eye co-ordination
with basic tennis skills.
children will learn to work as a member of a team in a relaxed environment
and parents will be encouraged to join in for the final session
when all 60 children will be given their first tennis racquet.
of the available places have already been allocated following visits
to primary schools by Julie Williams of JW Tennis and her coaching
team, who have all been selected to run the initiative and specially
trained by the likes of Leon Smith (GB Davis Cup Captain) and the
are still some places remaining which can be booked online https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/TennisForKids
six courses, each with 10 children, will take place at the Avenue
Tennis Club in The Grove commencing April 25th, 26th and 27th.
