Tennis is fun, great for fitness and for developing hand eye co-ordination. It can be played by all ages and abilities - boys and girls can play together, so it’s ideal for mixed classes.
Schools give most children their first experience of sport and their early experience can often determine whether they stay in the game. Recent research* (England) shows that tennis in schools is growing, with 80% of schools offering tennis and 47% of schools having a link with a local place to play tennis.
You don’t need tennis courts to play – it can be played in school halls, playgrounds or sports halls and a range of adapted equipment and modified or alternative versions of the game are available.
Since 2009, over 16,000 schools have received Aegon Schools Tennis Equipment Packs

The Schools Tennis Strategy sets out the vision, direction and plans for the future of tennis in schools across Great Britain. The strategy, which looks at ‘where we are now’, ‘where do we want to be’ and ‘how we are going to get there’, has been developed by the Tennis Foundation, in partnership with the LTA and others working in tennis and the education sector.
The success of the Strategy is crucial as part of tennis’ legacy for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
