The Tennis Foundation have specifically designed a package of innovative free training and resources to support special school teachers and those teaching disabled young people in units or mainstream education, to ensure that all young people can play and enjoy tennis.

Course content

The three-hour Inclusive Tennis Teacher Training Course has been designed to give teachers and teaching assistants in special schools, and those teaching disabled children and young people in units or mainstream education, the confidence and tools to deliver tennis to a class of children with a range of abilities in a small space.

Free resources and equipment

Every teacher attending the Inclusive Course is supported with a free copy of the award-winning Inclusive Tennis Teacher Resource (Best Inclusive Resource, Education Resources Awards 2015), providing ideas for teaching skills, strokes and competitive activities as well as techniques on how to differentiate those activities to ensure all young people can achieve.

Please note that we will unfortunately no longer be providing a free Schools Tennis Equipment Pack for attendees at our 3 hour Teacher Training courses. However, teachers attending the courses will be able to access an exclusive equipment discount offer for their school, which will replace the previous offer.

All teachers (or teaching assistants) that attend the course will have the option to purchase one Inclusive Schools Tennis Equipment Pack for their school at the heavily discounted rate of £150 ex VAT (£180 VAT inc. Usual price: £540 VAT inc), while stocks last.

Please note this offer is limited to a maximum of one equipment pack per person; students and coaches attending the course are not eligible to purchase the packs at the discounted rate; and packs will only be posted to a school address. If the order is made within 30 days of attending a course, the recipient will also receive a ball top up pack free of charge (full terms and conditions and further details regarding the purchase of the equipment will be distributed at the course).

Since 2009, as a charity the Tennis Foundation has invested in providing more than £10m worth of tennis equipment to schools. This investment has helped 20,000 schools provide a positive experience of tennis to their pupils, many of which for the first time.

Having now successfully delivered this equipment to such an extent, and as part of the evolution of the Tennis Foundation's school tennis strategy, we are now directing spend towards new programmes focussed on providing high quality access to our sport, such as 'School of Tennis'. Doing so will enable us to best deliver the mission of our charity to help people enjoy the many health and social benefits of tennis, whilst maximising their personal potential.

Pre-requisites

This course is aimed at qualified and active school teachers, teaching assistants and those working and delivering physical education in a special school or mainstream environment.
