How Does it Work?

Schools sign a partnership agreement with Liverpool Tennis Foundation.

Each school is linked to a partner tennis club – schools must undertake to display information about the club and also print off and distribute flyers to children.

Partner schools will receive a free invitation to send a group to the Kids Day at the Liverpool International Tournament

Schools Demo Days

In School Demonstration Days are available free of charge to any Liverpool School and can be arranged at any time by contacting us – to date our coaches have done over 100 of these!

These take the form of our coaches coming into the school for a day and taking a half hour demonstration session with each of years 2-6. This children get to see a game of tennis being played and to have a go and some introductory racket and ball exercises. Demo days are dynamic and fun and a great way of giving children an introduction to tennis.

In return the school is asked to copy distribute a follow-on letter which we will e mail to you. This will highlight an out of school activity at a local club or centre which will be linked to the school.

In some cases depending on the facilities ast the school an on site after school club can be run – one of our most successful is at Kingsley Road School in Toxteth.

Children with particular ability in year 3 and 4 will be invited to become part of a special ‘Futures Group’ offering fast track coaching.
