Free tennis taster sessions for Wimbledon

In celebration of Wimbledon fortnight from 2-15 July, we’re offering free tennis taster sessions for children aged 2-7 across the city, designed to help them pick up a racket and have a go!

It’s a great time to introduce your kids to tennis, and if you think your children are too young to play, think again!

We run Tennis Tots sessions for 2-7 year olds at Brendon Lawrence Sports Centre in St Ann’s – open to children from anywhere in the city. Led by our trained and experienced sports coaches, Tennis Tots is designed to give children basic tennis skills through fun, interactive sessions. For instance, fun-based motor skills activities and racket and ball activities to teach children the fundamentals of the game, such as the forehand, backhand, volley and serve.

Tennis Tots also aims to inspire parents, giving you the know-how you need to understand the skills being taught to your children and how to practice with them at home. The benefits of starting to play tennis from a young age in a fun and playful way are well documented, with practice one of the key factors in becoming a tennis champion.
