Course Details

We believe tennis has the ability to support teenagers lead a healthy and active lifestyle and also develop the employability skills they need to achieve their future aspirations. To support secondary school teachers to use tennis in a fun, engaging and relevant way, the Tennis Foundation has developed a package of innovative support including free training and resources. 

Course content

The three-hour Secondary Schools Tennis Teacher Training Course has been developed to provide teachers with the confidence and knowledge to deliver traditional and modified versions of the sport, such as Mini Tennis for teenagers and Cardio Tennis.

Free resources

Every teacher attending the Secondary Course is supported with a free copy of the award-winning Secondary Schools Tennis Teacher Resource (Best Secondary Resource, Education Resources Awards 2013). The resource provides ideas and lesson plans for delivering tennis on a tennis court, in a sports hall or playground as well as providing resources to assist teachers in assessing the ability of pupils.


Please note that we will unfortunately no longer be providing a free Schools Tennis Equipment Pack for attendees at our 3 hour Teacher Training courses. However, teachers attending the courses will be able to access an exclusive equipment discount offer for their school, which will replace the previous offer.

All teachers (or teaching assistants) that attend the course will have the option to purchase one Standard Schools Tennis Equipment Pack for their school at the heavily discounted rate of £150 ex VAT (£180 VAT inc. Usual price: £540 VAT inc), while stocks last. 

Please note this offer is limited to a maximum of one equipment pack per person; students and coaches attending the course are not eligible to purchase the packs at the discounted rate; and packs will only be posted to a school address. If the order is made within 30 days of attending a course, the recipient will also receive a ball top up pack free of charge (full terms and conditions and further details regarding the purchase of the equipment will be distributed at the course).

Since 2009, as a charity the Tennis Foundation has invested in providing more than £10m worth of tennis equipment to schools.  This investment has helped 20,000 schools provide a positive experience of tennis to their pupils, many of which for the first time.

Having now successfully delivered this equipment to such an extent, and as part of the evolution of the Tennis Foundation’s school tennis strategy, we are now directing spend towards new programmes focussed on providing high quality access to our sport, such as ‘School of Tennis’. Doing so will enable us to best deliver the mission of our charity to help people enjoy the many health and social benefits of tennis, whilst maximising their personal potential.


This course is aimed at qualified and active secondary school teachers, teaching assistants and those working and delivering physical education in a secondary school environment.
