Kiwi Tennis We have started offering our students the opportunity to learn tennis. Held every Monday lunchtime in the hall the club is open to all children and all abilities.
Children learn how to play tennis through fun, structured tennis lessons where experienced coaches will teach students all the shots used in tennis… forehands, backhands, volleys and even smashes! The children will also learn how to serve, rally and score in tennis. The creative Kiwi Tennis coaches make learning tennis fun whilst also improving the children’s movement and coordination skills, confidence and team working ability. All equipment is provided by Kiwi Tennis.
