In November 2015 GB defeated Belgium to win the Davis Cup for the fist time since 1936
Afterwards, Leon Smith, Andy Murray and the GB squad decided to create a Davis Cup Legacy programme, to get as many children playing tennis as possible.
TENNIS FOR KIDS IS THERE LEGACY.
What is Tennis for Kids?
Free tennis and rackets for 5-8 year olds!
Bigger and better in 2017
Tennis for Kids is back, bigger and better than before. Our aim is to get 20,000 kids, brand new to tennis, on a 6 week, free tennis course, this summer.
Tennis for Kids launched last year, offering children the opportunity to fall in love with tennis by taking a course delivered by specially trained, fun, passionate coaches between April and September. The initiative was a great success, reaching over 13,000 kids, all of whom took home a brand new, specially designed, Davis Cup tennis racket.
What can you expect?
- A free 6 week course, delivered by a specially trained qualified LTA Coach
- A free racket for your child to keep forever!
- An opportunity for parents to get involved
- Discounts and incentives to keep your child playing after the course completes
On Monday 20th February Leon Smith (GB Davis Cup Captain), Greg Rusedski, (ex world no.4), and Alfie Hewett (Wimbledon Wheelchair Doubles Champion) put Norfolk Coaches through there paces. The days training was specifically designed to show coaches the skills and coaching points to deliver over the 6 week course.
