With the weather being as lovely as it has been these last few weeks, we’ve been trying to make the most of the outdoors. My little girl loves being outdoors and its where she thrives the most. One of her favourite places to visit is our local park, it has lots of space for her to run around and enjoy. Lately however shes began to notice a few people playing tennis in the courts our local park also hosts and has taken a interest.
Growing up I was a huge fan of tennis, we had tennis courts inside my school grounds and at the local park so there was lots of opportunities for kids to be introduced to it. My eldest hasn’t had a chance to try out playing tennis herself yet , however I’ve been wanting to show her for a while now just how fun Tennis can be. Especially now she’s started to take a interest in it.
That said recently we learned that this year, the Lawn Tennis Association were kindly enough offering free tennis classes to children between the ages of 5-8. Talk about perfect timing. I jumped at the chance to sign my little girl up for her place. She’s not really a fan of trying new things if she feels like there’s too much pressure on her… so the 6 week fun filled course with games and activities was ideal, as I knew it will help her enjoy learning a lot more.
It’s really simple and easy to sign up for Tennis for Kids, just simply head to the Club Spark website, type in your post code in the Tennis for kids sessions search box provided. Once you’ve done the following it should bring up a list of the closest places to you, as well as dates and times etc.
The are 20,000 spaces available all over the UK via the ClubSpark website. It really is a fantastic opportunity and one not to miss out on. If you’re not sold already then another added bonus is that if your child attends for the full 6 weeks and complete the course, then they’ll get their very own racket at the end. How great’s that!!
Lessons start from 22nd April, so there’s still some time to sign up at your local participating club by signing up here . However I’d definitely recommend doing so as soon as possible, as with it being such a great opportunity spaces are filling up fast.
