The Tennis Foundation’s Schools Tennis Road Show made its final stop in Roehampton this week.
Since they began in 2009, more than 3,000 people have attended the Schools Tennis Road Show, which visited 16 towns and cities across the country this year.
The Road Show aims to provide an overview of all the support available to schools, highlight new resources and products and demonstrate practical ideas for delivering tennis in a school setting.
The Tennis Foundation’s Head of Education Tom Gibbins said: “The Road Show is a great chance for us to promote the resources available to support teachers to deliver tennis activities that inspire all their pupils that tennis is for them.”
Tutors Paul Williams and Phil Leighton put everyone through their paces with Cardio Tennis sessions – a tennis inspired workout played to up-tempo music – as well providing ideas on how to adapt and differentiate tennis activities to ensure all disabled young people are included and can achieve.
Everyone that attended the Road Show received the Guide to Schools Tennis 2013, a Cardio Tennis teacher resource and an inclusive tennis teacher resource.
A £50 Schools Tennis equipment voucher was also awarded to all attendees, as well as entry into a prize draw to win one of 100 Schools Tennis Equipment Packs and a pair of tickets to an LTA Major Event in 2013.
