The priority for local schools competition is to increase the amount of local, entry-level competitive tennis opportunities available through schools. There are many different types of inter and intra school competitions that can be run in schools and the School Games Tennis Toolkit has been developed to assist in making this as easy as possible.

Working closely with the Youth Sport Trust, our priority competition for primary schools in England is the Year 3&4 Mini Tennis Red Competition.
The Sainsbury’s School Games Inclusion formats have been created to enable SEN/disabled (SEND) and non-SEND pupils from mainstream schools to compete against each other.

Following on from the success of Timed Tennis Competitions in both Further and Higher Education, we have produced a Timed Tennis Competition Resource for schools which was previewed at out Schools Tennis Road Show this year.
Timed tennis’ is suitable for mixed gender groups and can be run on a variety of formats catering for both intra and inter school competition. The timed tennis format is also ideal as you can plan exactly how long matches will last and therefore the overall time your competition will take. There is an option of running timed tennis competitions on either full-size tennis courts, using standard tennis balls and rackets, or on short tennis/ modified badminton courts using foam tennis balls and mini rackets.
