In partnership with Ten Project we will be introducing tennis to three SEN schools in Sutton. During the ten week programme, coaches will deliver activity sessions alongside the school teacher and volunteers, focussing on fun and teaching new skills. To encourage the children to continue their development and enjoy the game with their family, they will be invited to new inclusive tennis sessions at Sutton Tennis and Squash Club each weekend. This is a key part of the programme as it is important that we create further inclusive environments for families to play together in safe surroundings for free.
Founder of Ten Project, Harry Lloyd said, “Ten Project really does lend itself to being fully inclusive and in general tennis can be a lot more inclusive than we realise. The great work charities like Bright Ideas for Tennis do are making that a reality. I’m so pleased to be partnering with them as we look to get more children and their families playing together.”
We have delivered disability training at the club to their coaches and volunteers and look forward to starting the sessions next month.
