As part of the successful Totally Tennis schools programme Head Coach James McIntosh visited local schools to deliver tennis assemblies, all the pupils involved were then invited to attend a FREE junior tennis open day. Part of the LTA Big Tennis Weekends initiative, open days are designed to give children an opportunity to try tennis at a club on real tennis courts with LTA qualified coaches.
Head coach James McIntosh said, “The event went really well and it was great to give so many children the opportunity to play tennis at the centre and for some it was their first time in picking up a racket.” he added, ” Since the event Totally Tennis has managed to expand its schools programme with the introduction of an after schools club at St Johns which we are looking forward to getting started next week.”
The Totally Tennis schools programme has not only given children the opportunity to play tennis but also produced countless players and coaches over the years. Some of these players have represented their respective schools and the club in many competitions, even winning National titles. The club also runs curriculum and after school sessions as well as the annual schools tournaments at the indoor centre.
