Working closely with the Youth Sport Trust, our priority competition for primary schools in England is the Year 3&4 Mini Tennis Red Competition.
We are also pleased to be able to provide young people with a free Mini Tennis Racket & Ball Set, across Great Britain with the aim of inspiring them to play more tennis, more often – in schools and their communities at a local place to play tennis.
School Reward – Each school entering a team into a Mini Tennis Red Schools Competition will receive 30 x Mini Tennis Red Felt Balls, 30 x Mini Tennis Red Sponge Balls and 1 x roll of barrier tape, limited to the first 3,000 applications.
Player Reward – Each school entering a team into a Mini Tennis Red Schools Competition is eligible to apply for four of their pupils to receive a free Mini Tennis Racket and Ball Set, on a first come first serve basis as rackets are limited. Please note: Current British Tennis Members are not eligible to receive the ‘Player Reward’.
Reward Packs are available to schools once they have participated in / entered a local priority Mini Tennis Red Schools Competition.
