Tennis for Schools is driven by the belief that tennis should
be accessible to everyone.
What is the overall goal?
Making sustainable, organised and affordable tennis
accessible to children of all ages and abilities.
We will work to achieve this through improved support to Schools Tennis. The strategy is an integral part of our work to grow overall participation in tennis; alongside a range of other activities, including:
• Broadening the appeal of tennis – tackling misconceptions, for example tennis as an “exclusive” or “expensive” sport.
• Enhanced competitions – improving existing and introducing new competitions, including entry-level
• Improving coach and teacher education and support to improve the quality of experience and increase the likelihood that people will stay involved.
• Encouraging coaches and tennis facilities, including schools, to offer an increased and more inclusive range of tennis activities to appeal to different audiences.
