Schools and Community Links

One of JWT’s aims is to help promote tennis in the community and are working closely with Aylesbury Vale District Council and local School Sports Partnerships.AEGON_SchoolsTennis_RGB

At first sight, tennis may not look like an obvious choice for a school sport. Questions may arise such as, how can we play tennis with no nets? Is it not dangerous with the hard tennis balls? What about all the different ages and abilities?

However, JWT are offering a free tennis roadshow to all primary schools within Aylesbury Vale to demonstrate how this is possible with the use of portable nets and soft or foam tennis balls.

The schools can then become involved in a 6 week programme organised by a member of the coaching team either as after-school clubs or during the curriculum time. The school’s teachers are encouraged to join in and gain valuable coaching experience so that they may be able to offer tennis sessions after the JWT programme has finished with the aim to enter the schools into local competitions.

JWT are always looking to expand, so if you believe you could offer something to the programme, whether it be club or externally based coaching we welcome you to get in touch.
