Children Take Advantage Of Free ‘Play Tennis’ Clinics

Tuesday, February 11, 2020


#THE Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association (BLTA) “Play Tennis” programme is reporting a steady stream of young children between the ages of four and 16 at its free tennis clinics on Saturdays.

#On this past Saturday, the rain did not deter the crowd of children and the fun activities moved indoors at The National Tennis Centre.

#The coaches focused the kids on footwork and fitness, recognising the importance of both in the sport of tennis.

#“The tennis clinics are reaching a new cross-section of beginner players, fostering growth and development,” said Perry Newton, head of the junior development of the BLTA.

#“The average age of the kids is around nine years old but our youngest is four and the oldest is 16.

#“We are tapping into a gold mine of talent and possibilities.”

#The BLTA invites kids aged 5-17 to its “Play Tennis” Programme 10:30am next Saturday ‘rain or shine’ at the National Tennis Centre.

#Take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to play tennis. Registration is only $1 and all equipment is provided.

#The programme is making a positive impact as it seeks to provide an easily accessible avenue of learning, development and growth, shaping and searching for the next generation of tennis players.
