At Tennis-4-kids we offer a range of different classes for 4 different age groups and abilities.
Whilst learning the tennis strokes, I usually suggest a few tried and tested fun activities and games.
This proves really popular with the younger children, as it gives them the opportunity to relax, have fun, and let go.
Games such as "Cowboys and Indians," "Find the Golden Eggs" and “Wolfie Wolfie” are just some of the favourites.
I am usually asked by the children which games they want to play, before we start the lesson. Having had a fun break, the children are more than ready to tackle the next stroke or drill of the lesson.
I really believe by creating a fun environment, the children are more susceptible to learning.
For children aged 2.5 to 3 years, sessions on Mondays
Lots of fun and games for the children and their parents, a great introduction to Tennis-4-kids and tennis.
Lots of exercises to introduce volley and forehands.
In Little Aces we use lots of games as the children begin to be taught the basics:
- racket grip
- body positioning
- ground strokes
- drop hit serves
Junior Champs is for beginners or for improving and extending the basics where the children will:
- develop their strokes
- begin rallies
- introduced to match play
Grand Slammers is the our most advanced session, where the children will focus on:
- techniques and drills
- singles and doubles matches
They will also learn
- top spin on ground strokes
Our aim is to prepare for the children to progress to a full size tennis court.
