Tennis really is a sport that anyone can play. It can be adapted for any level of ability, impairments or disability, friends and family are welcome to join in the sessions too.
I Play 30 are free tennis activity sessions designed for adults and children with learning, sensory and physical disabilities and for those experiencing mental ill health.
Each session will be run by a qualified LTA coach who has received specific disability tennis training and specialised equipment will be provided including rackets. Participants are encouraged to play at their own pace, just sign up as and when you feel like it.
If your club would like to host one of our I Play 30 session please get in touch, we are always looking for new venues to join our growing disability programme. Bright Ideas for Tennis will help you forge links with local community groups and SEN schools, provide all the training needed and continuously support your team as the sessions get underway. We offer a budget to deliver the sessions and will include your club in further fundraising opportunities.
