P1 & P2 Coaching (Mini Tennis Red)
This class is aimed at children in P1 & P2 playing Mini Tennis Red. Mini Tennis red is played on a badminton size court with sponge or soft tennis balls and small rackets. This is to allow the child the best opportunity to develop the skills to play rallies and points. They will develop a good foundation of basic motor skills (ABC’s) and learn to play different shots. Players will problem solve, work in pairs and small groups, learn to play the game and score.

P3 & P4 Fun Matchplay
This is for children in P3 & P4 who already play mini tennis and would like more practice at playing points. The games will be played on a badminton size court with sponge or mini red balls. Your child will learn how to score and learn the basic tactics of points play. Parents are welcome to stay and learn how to score.
- Fridays 16:00-17:00
