Play Tennis Together

Playing together is a brilliant way for the whole family to keep active and playing with your kids will help them progress their game.

If you want to get better at tennis, there’s no substitute for just getting out and playing. Mix it up, even if you don’t play tennis yourself you can always go down and throw balls for your kids to hit or you can set them up to play with one of their friends.

Keep kids entertained with a variety of games and activities using different skills and equipment. Let them explore, try out new things and use their imagination.
