Over the last month Appeti Tennis, in partnership with The Canterbury High School, have been working with nine local primary schools delivering their 123 Junior tennis programme.
The nine schools involved were:-
Bridge and Patrixbourne Primary School
Chartham Primary School
Hernhill Primary School
St Mary’s Primary School
St Peter’s Methodist Primary School
St Stephens’ Infant School
Swalecliffe Primary School
The Canterbury Primary School
Wincheap Primary School
Each of these schools have received four free weeks of coaching funded by The Tennis Foundation during curriculum time. From this outreach programme we are pleased to welcome over ninety new youngsters to our Canterbury centre where they are learning more about the game of tennis.
All the youngsters that have decided to develop their tennis further will receive eight more weeks of subsidised coaching delivered by the same team of coaches who have been busy working with them at their schools. Tim Bean, Ffion Newberry, Richard Myall and Graham Hunt are all looking forward to coaching this new wave of promising players.
It is hoped these keen youngsters will continue and want to follow in the footsteps of our older players already involved in the Appeti Academy.
Thanks again to The Canterbury High School and The Tennis Foundation for supporting this year’s programme.
