Volleys & Values – inspired by London 2012 – is an innovative and inspiring cross curricular resource for children to learn more about the game of tennis and the values that underpin the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Volleys & Values has been granted the prestigious London 2012 Inspire mark, the badge of the London 2012 Inspire programme which recognises exceptional and innovative projects inspired by the 2012 Games.
Dan the Coach, who you may recognise from our Primary Schools Tennis DVD Box Set, and some new friends ‘the Value Monsters’ are on hand to guide you and your pupils through each of the 12 easy-to-use lesson plans.
All lessons come with worksheets and answers where appropriate – allowing teachers to do get on and do what they do best, teach! Volleys & Values covers six subjects: Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Modern Foreign Languages, ICT and Physical Education.
Volleys & Values has been designed to be as flexible as possible so schools can decide how and when they use it to suit their own circumstances and intended outcomes. The 12 lessons have been planned for children aged 9-11 but can easily be adapted for younger children in primary schools or even lower year groups in secondary schools. We hope that Volleys & Values will inspire your pupils to learn more about tennis – perhaps take up the sport both in and out of school – and also encourage them to demonstrate the Olympic and Paralympic values in all that they do!

“Volleys & Values is an inspirational learning experience for all school children, combining the traditional elements of education with fun Olympic and Paralympic based information. A huge amount of thought and hard work has gone into producing the series of 12 lesson plans, which are well researched and put together. It is fantastic that Young Ambassadors have been involved in creating the resource ensuring Volleys & Values is for young people, by young people.” - Clare Wood, Tennis Competition Manager for the London 2012 Games.
