October 2010 - The Tennis Foundation helps over 500 youngsters experience tennis.

This month we are pleased to welcome at least fifty new youngsters into our junior programme on The Canterbury Campus. A grant from The Tennis Foundation has meant that during September our coaches have been very busy working with over 500 local children in their primary schools. Every child who received coaching was offered the opportunity to have four weeks subsidised follow on sessions at one of our venues.

It was also great to have Nonington Primary visit the centre where they spent the day working with one of our coaches developing their tennis skills. Once again every youngsters was offered the opportunity to join an after school session.

We’d like to thank The Tennis Foundation for making these sessions possible and are looking forward to working with more schools in for the future.

The subsidy from the Tennis Foundation means that we will be able to visit local primary schools weekly for the next two years.
