Tennis Fun For Little Ones
Welcome to PLAYTENNIS for Tiny Tots, the fun and educational tennis play, skills and coaching program. We provide tennis classes for pre-school age children (4-5) and also hold classes for older children up to the age of 11, as well as working in high quality day nurseries. The classes develop children's basic co-ordination skills, gross and fine motor control, agility and balance and at the same time also promote social interaction and develop confidence, language and listening skills.
Playing tennis at a young age is not only a fantastic way for children to enjoy a sport but studies* also show that it also provides these other amazing lifelong benefits:
It is the best sport in ensuring great physical, emotional and mental well-being.
It promotes confidence.
Is a great way of developing the ABCs of agility, balance and co-ordination; promoting gross and fine motor control.
Tennis players score higher in vigour, optimism, and self-esteem than other athletes
Playing tennis requires alertness and tactical thinking and may generate new connections between nerves in the brain so promoting a lifetime of continuing development of the brain.
Physical benefits keep childhood obesity at bay.
