Open from 06/04/2017 to 08/05/2017
Tennis for Kids 2017 is a nationwide grassroots initiative, organised by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), to get children aged 5 to 8 to pick up a racket and play tennis for the first time.
And it’s all FREE!
To book a place for your child – there are 20,000 places available all over the UK – you just need to sign up here.
The free Tennis for Kids 2017 courses run for 6 weeks this spring and early summer (dates vary with each) and are led by specially trained LTA coaches. With the emphasis on having fun, activities focus on teamwork, simple ball skills and lots of active play.
And, if you sign your child up, they will get to their very own racket to take home at the end of the course!
Tennis for Kids ran for the first time in 2016 and was such a huge success, the LTA has doubled the number of places on offer to children this year. Former British number 1 tennis star, and mum, Annabel Croft helped train the Tennis for Kids 2017 coaches and says, ‘It is fantastic that Tennis for Kids is back, bigger and better. As a parent, seeing children taking to the courts is great, and it is inspiring to see them enjoying tennis, having fun, learning a new skill and getting active from such a young age.’
To mark the launch of Tennis for Kids, which is run in association with Highland Spring, the LTA wants hear all about how you and your child enjoy being active together outdoors.
Simply post on our special thread in the MadeForMums Chat forum to say what outdoor games and activities you love to do with your kids – and why.
Don’t forget to tell us how old your child is/children are, and please do feel free to post up pictures of your children having fun and being active outside. The LTA would love that – and it increases your chances of winning (see below).
Post your story on the forum thread here.
